Computer vision helps enterprises see further faster
How artificial intelligence is teaching machines to identify new possibilities at a glance.
As one of today’s key enabling technologies for artificial intelligence (A.I.), computer vision helps machines quickly and accurately identify, interpret, and understand the visual world in order to make intelligent recommendations and decisions. With applications across all industries, computer vision is paving the way for a $51.3 billion market by 2026, according to a study from Research and Markets, and giving rise to a wave of billion-dollar startups.
TELUS International AI Data Solutions, a division of TELUS International that was created following its acquisitions of Playment and Lionbridge AI, is a global leader in computer vision technology and data annotation. The Vancouver-headquartered company is leveraging its expanded portfolio of capabilities to handle larger volumes and deliver accurately labeled data sets faster to its clients, helping them develop some of the most advanced A.I.-powered products and services and explore new possibilities that continuously push the envelope.
“Computer vision is forever changing the way we live and work,” says Jeff Puritt, president and CEO of TELUS International. “The promise of A.I. and computer vision is that machines will be able to see like humans, but react with greater speed and accuracy, and introduce exponential gains and new possibilities that unassisted humans cannot achieve.”
TELUS International has a global A.I. community of more than 1 million annotators and linguists and a proprietary data annotation platform. Together, they combine the best of human and machine intelligence to provide trusted and diverse data sets that power computer vision and enable leading brands to disrupt their respective industries and stay ahead of the competition.
TELUS International’s clients are using computer vision in a myriad of ways to achieve distinct operating advantages. These benefits include supporting the safe development of autonomous vehicles and driving systems; analyzing data from cell towers and other structures gathered by autonomous drones, diminishing the cost and danger of human inspections; and enabling fintech companies to recognize and categorize financial documentation, reducing instances of fraud.
“Computer vision is one of the most revolutionary technologies of our generation, and society as a whole is just starting to harness its full transformational potential to address some of the biggest challenges we face,” says Puritt. “As a trusted A.I. partner, we are committed to fundamentally depleting the ‘garbage in, garbage out’ cycle of labeled data and reducing data bias by harnessing the intelligence, skills, and cultural knowledge of our global A.I. community of contributors to help our clients disrupt entire industries, create new ones, and irrevocably change the way we experience and ‘see’ the world.”
