Leica Microsystems Acquires Aivia Software

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Leica Microsystems acquired certain assets, including Aivia, from SVision LLC. Aivia is an AI-enabled visualization, analysis, and interpretation software. It includes a wide range of machine learning and deep learning algorithms, 2D to 5D image visualization functionalities, cloud-based model training modules, web applications, and the ability to process large data sets on the terabyte scale.

Glossary
deep learning
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning that involves the use of artificial neural networks to model and solve complex problems. The term "deep" in deep learning refers to the use of deep neural networks, which are neural networks with multiple layers (deep architectures). These networks, often called deep neural networks or deep neural architectures, have the ability to automatically learn hierarchical representations of data. Key concepts and components of deep learning include: ...
