  • “ML is the future!”. This is a statement that you have probably come across in some form recently, as machine learning seems to be all the rage in the tech realm. But what exactly is machine learning? How has it managed to position itself, in a numerous amount of fields, as a major driver of progress? And why won’t people stop talking about it? A quick overview: in the mid-20th century, Arthur Samuel, who coined the phrase machine learning, decided that computers should be able to learn on their own

  • After the tragic Maryland shooting transpired at the Capital Gazette, in late June, police were desperate to find the culprit. Without cooperation from the suspect and an inability to match fingerprints, the police department turned to a system including millions of photos of criminals as well as people who carried driver’s licenses with the state: the Maryland Image Repository System (Brandom). Thanks to this database (MIRS), police were able to identify Jarrod Ramos as the shooter. Law enforcement could lean on image recognition, when all customary methods failed, and Maryland was

  • It's no secret that computer vision, machine learning, and augmented reality is on a rapid incline, transforming the tech field as a whole. We sat down with 2 of our team’s computer vision interns, Manasa Manohora and Deepika Kanade (pictured below), to chat about where they see the CV industry going.                             1. Since you’ve started in computer vision, what overall progressions have you seen?  Manasa: It’s been over a year since I started working in the field of computer vision.

  • If you’ve been keeping up with cell phone technology at all over the past few years, not much has changed. Apple, for example, has been putting out a phone that has looked nearly the same for 5 years while prices keep climbing. What, aside from software, is changing in these new devices, you ask? The Camera! Nothing is more frustrating than trying to share an amazing experience when the photo does not convey the true feeling of the moment. Many new phones now incorporate two cameras to portray depth and

  • Lucid and VIA Technologies are partnering up to bring you a better solution to depth sensing. You will now see an expansion of capabilities in your security, retail, robotics, and autonomous driving products. The secret behind it all is the VIA Edge AI 3D Developer Kit, which will deliver AI-based depth sensing capabilities to dual- and multi-camera devices. Get a first look of the Lucid/Via demo at the ISC East Conference, located at the Javits Center in NYC, November 14th and 15th. The AI-enhanced 3D/depth solution developed by Lucid, known as

  • From left to right: Adam Rowell (Lucid Co-founder & CTO), Arthur Van Hoff, Han Jin (Lucid Co-founder & CEO) We would like to welcome Arthur Van Hoff to Lucid’s board of advisors! Arthur is a serial entrepreneur who has founded multiple start-ups and helped others climb the ranks to nationwide notoriety. His biggest claim to fame is founding Jaunt in 2013, which has been at the forefront of developing technology to understand and create immersive content experiences. Starting in the 80s, Arthur worked on depth map generation, photogrammetry, and 3D with

  • Why does nobody over the age of ten watch 3D movies in theaters? Once the allure of dawning 3D glasses to watch a movie subsides, which I’ve found lasts for about one movie, you realize how annoying it is to have to look through glasses to enjoy the show. Our new partner, Holitech, has developed a screen protector that can turn any smartphone into a glasses-free 3D viewing device when coupled with Lucid’s latest software solution, Andromeda. Who is Holitech? Holitech Technology Co. (Holitech), is a leader in the manufacturing and supply
