Another company to watch in 2018 is Ambarella.
This company is
the leader in video image processing for security cameras, as well as drones,
sports, and body cameras. In the first half of 2018 it will launch its first
“Computer Vision” chip, purpose-built to add intelligence to these devices.
These cameras can then provide the information for artifcial
intelligence to control everything from traffic flows to disaster response.
The proliferation of cameras is just one of the areas of artifcial
intelligence that has just reached a critical juncture.
In fact, if 2018 delivers on just half its promise then the practical application of the
technology will mean people’s lives will be noticeably changed by the end
of the year.
