Analyzing 3D Data for AI-Powered Robotic Automation
Analyzing 3D Data for AI-Powered Robotic Automation
There’s increasing interest in deep learning for 2D images, from facial recognition to manufacturing, spurred by the promise of the IIoT. And today, a growing faction believes employing relatively inexpensive cameras to capture 2D images and then performing deep learning is the secret to a quality assurance. While there’s some truth to that assumption, relying on data to make decisions is not so straightforward in real life.
