ImageProf. Jitendra Malik
Deep Learning for Deep Visual Understanding

Jitendra Malik is Arthur J. Chick Professor of EECS at UC Berkeley, and a Director of Research at Facebook AI Research in Menlo Park. He has published widely in computer vision, computational modeling of human vision, and machine learning. Several well-known concepts and algorithms arose in this research, such as anisotropic diffusion, normalized cuts, high dynamic range imaging, shape contexts and R-CNN.

Jitendra received the Distinguished Researcher in Computer Vision Award from IEEE, the K.S. Fu Prize from IAPR, and the Allen Newell award from ACM and AAAI.

ImageMr. Jeremy White
Keynote Speaker

Jeremy is executive editor of Wired, the influential technology and trends magazine that covers innovation and the businesses that are building the future. He is in charge of analysing and identifying emerging trends and technological shifts that will impact consumers and businesses alike. From the Internet of Things to AI, smart homes to smart cities, flying cars to passenger drones, Jeremy has first-hand experience of emerging trends as well as personal contact with the global business leaders driving them.

As Wired’s executive editor, Jeremy is tasked with seeking out and evaluating products at the very cutting edge of innovation and design. Jeremy also edits all the special supplements for Wired, including the luxury annual, Wired Desired.

The annual EMVA Businesss Conference will take place from 7 – 9 June in Dubrovnik.
Starting on Thursday it will end with an optional networking tour on Saturday afternoon.

Case Study

Finding the suitable industrial PC for web inspection through conducting a product test

The inspection systems division of Electronic Systems based in Momo in the province of Novara/Italy has specialized in customized applications for inline control of continuous products. The switch in interfaces from CameraLink to GigE Vision led to the search for a new industrial PC for their web inspection system. A test run with a choice of industrial PCs left the Tattile Multi-Camera Vision Controller M100 GigE as the best suitable option. Read more ›

CX and EX series add ten new models with rolling shutter sensors

Image Baumer expands the successful CX and EX camera series with ten new models featuring rolling shutter CMOS sensors by ON Semiconductor and Sony, including sensors from the STARVIS series. With resolutions of 5, 10, 12 and 20 megapixel, these sensors deliver low noise, low heat generation and an excellent price-performance ratio. Hence, these new models are the ideal choice for cost-sensitive applications that require low-price cameras with high resolution and image quality comparable to a global shutter sensor, reducing system cost.

SONY brings IMX250 Pregius CMOS Sensor with On-Pixel Polarizer for improved object detection

Image Sony Semiconductor Solutions releases its new Pregius IMX250 sensor with a four-directional polarization square pixel array, providing higher contrast for more detailed pictures in less time.

The 5.07 Megapixel sensor, with a 2/3-inch optical format, has a 2448 x 2048 pixel array utilizing a 3.45µm pixel size. The IMX250 reaches a frame rate of 144fps at 10 bits. With global shutter and variable charge-integration time, this sensor is a great fit for factory automation as well as for ITS applications and imaging in infrastructure.
The sensor, along with additional support services, is available from global imaging expert FRAMOS. Read more ›

New Camera Module with CMOS Global Shutter and 30x Zoom

Image Camera modules, aka block cameras, are devices with an integrated image sensor, lens optics, video output and control electronics. Thanks to their easy integration in imaging systems, camera modules are widely used, globally, e.g. in video surveillance and industrial applications. With the MP2030M-GS, Tamron is advancing this product species to an unseen level, featuring an industrial grade CMOS Global Shutter image sensor, Full-HD resolution at 60 fps, 30x optical zoom, and compatibility to the interface of many other camera modules in the market.
