Jeff Bier

Founder, Embedded Vision Alliance

Jeff Bier is the founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance, a partnership of 90+ technology companies that works to enable the widespread use of practical computer vision. The Alliance’s annual conference, the Embedded Vision Summit (May 20-23, 2019 in Santa Clara, California) is the preeminent event where engineers, product designers, and business people gather to make vision-based products a reality.

When not running the Alliance, Jeff is the president of BDTI, an engineering services firm: for over 25 years BDTI has helped hundreds of companies select the right technologies and develop optimized, custom algorithms and software for demanding applications in audio, video, machine learning and computer vision. If you are choosing between processor options for your next design, need a custom algorithm to solve a unique visual perception problem, or need to fit demanding algorithms into a small cost/size/power envelope, BDTI can help.
