The global market for computer vision hardware and software is expected to reach $41 billion by 2030, according to Allied Market Researcha market that attracts no shortage of sellers’ interest.

At today’s Intel Innovation 2022 event, the chipmaker revealed details about its drive to computer vision with its Intel Geti platform and OpenVINO AI toolkit software. deep learning and inference.

“Computer vision models use AI to predict and extract valuable information from images and videos,” said Adam Burns, vice president and director of AI development tools for the Network and Edge Group (NEX) at Intel during the Intel Innovation 2022 press conference.

The information that computer vision models can detect ranges from identifying a defect during the manufacturing process to being able to determine how many people are standing in line at a restaurant, Burns said. He added that computer vision is being used to drive enterprise automation, productivity and innovation across many sectors and is rapidly growing in demand.

Sonoma Creek is now renamed the Intel Geti

Intel is developing its own computer vision platform under the codename Sonoma Creek. This effort is now paying off under the renamed Intel Geti name.

Intel’s goal with the Geti is to help accelerate the adoption of computer vision with Intel hardware and software. Geti provides a user interface that enables users to upload and comment on data, and train and retrain models.

“Intel Geti is a computer vision AI platform that enables anyone in the organization to rapidly develop AI models that improve business innovation and digital transformation,” Burns said. “We understand the value of AI and computer vision in the enterprise and we also understand the development barriers to adoption.”

Burns emphasized that Intel’s motivation with the Geti was to make computer vision more accessible, and to empower those who might not have extensive artificial intelligence or machine learning Backend to build high quality models quickly and easily.

Early users of Geti include healthcare

While Intel is only announcing the Geti today, it already has more than 30 active technology early access program partners.

One early access user is Royal Brompton Hospital in the UK, where doctors use Geti to aid in their research on rare respiratory conditions. Without any AI experience, Burns said, the team at Royal Brompton is able to train AI models just as if they were a human member of the research team to analyze research data.

Having trained AI models helps speed up image processing. “This solution could help significantly improve early diagnosis and treatment options for patients with acute respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis,” Burns said.

Another early use case, also outside the UK, with the visual analytics vendor sensing feelingwhich builds a solution using Intel Geti to monitor edge-based analytics and improve construction worker safety.

“With a computer vision model created by Intel Geti, its solution can sense when heavy equipment or machinery is in unsafe proximity to other equipment or personnel,” Burns said.

Crack Open Vino for Intel Geti

Geti isn’t the first time Intel has taken an initiative to help build computer vision models. Back in 2018, Intel announced the release of OpenVINO Toolkit Designed to help build edge computer vision models.

Burns said that OpenVINO and Geti are actually complementary technologies that serve different AI modeling needs.

“Enterprise users can quickly upload images and create computer vision models with Intel Geti and then deploy those models with OpenVINO at scale running on Intel hardware,” Burns said. “Intel Geti can produce an optimized OpenVINO model ready for deployment with the push of a button, providing additional optimization steps.”

At Intel Innovation 2022, the company also announced the release of OpenVINO 2022.2, which adds support for Intel GPU Flex Series Data center processors launched at the end of August. The updated OpenVINO version also adds a new automatic optimization feature that will detect all computing and GPUs available in the system.

“With OpenVINO and now Intel Geti, we have continued to try to make AI possible for decision makers and developers within the enterprise,” Burns said. Together, these two products enable the rapid development and deployment of computer vision models.
