Webcast Description:

Deep learning, embedded vision, hyperspectral/multispectral imaging, 3D imaging, computational imaging, and polarization imaging have emerged as some of the most popular machine vision technologies today.Featured in the November/December issue, the results of a first-of-its-kind market survey highlights how much these technologies are used, where, how, and by whom. A roundtable discussion on December 4 featuring three top experts in machine vision today (David Dechow, Perry West, and  Daniel Lau) will provide a forum for questions on these topics, how they might be using them, and how they may improve machine vision systems today.To submit a question ahead of time, please reach out to editor Jimmy Carroll at
