Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computer Vision (CV) & Machine Learning (ML) are the technologies that are at the forefront of innovation in the World today. AI has not yet been completely democratized as it is not readily available for reasons like cost of components, computing and return on investment issues. But these days computing is becoming cheaper, research-and-development on AI is increasing, and all these factors have made AI, Computer Vision (CV) and Machine-Learning (ML) available at a more economically-viable cost. In recent years, many innovative start-ups have come up with novel AI, CV and ML based  solutions for use-cases that have a high growth potential in the market.

The list below is non-exhaustive, but these are some of the Computer Vision Startups that are leading the race at the moment.

  1. Pilot AI Labs (California based) – Develops autonomous control systems capable of obstacle avoidance and object following for unmanned aerial vehicles using state-of-the-art deep learning technologies.
  2. GazeHawk (California based) – Provides affordable quality eye tracking services that can be used to see what visitors are looking at on a website.
  3. AIndra (Bangalore based) – Aindra is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Start-up creating Computer-Vision (CV) and Machine-Learning (ML) based products. Aindra’s AI, CV & ML powered platform enables Insurance, FinTech and Logistics companies to leverage visual analytics on their existing images/videos collected from real-life scenarios for automated risk-profiling, damage-estimation etc of insurable assets. Aindra’s CV & ML powered Identity-and-Fraud-Management solution is a platform robust enough to process Facial images captured by any low-cost photo-capturing device like smartphone, IP-camera etc.
