The European Machine Vision Forum is an annual event of the European Machine Vision Association - EMVA. The aim is to foster interaction between the machine vision industry and academic research to learn from each other, discuss the newest research results as well as problems from applications, learn about emerging application fields, and to discuss research cooperation between industry and academic institutes. The overall aim is to accelerate innovation by translating new research results faster into practice.
Many conferences target either academic researchers or applied industrial developers. However, on the European level, there is no other forum where research and industry can meet and network.
Focal topic: Photonics and Machine Vision: Going Deep into Integration
Over millions of years, biological vision systems evolved very differently in resolution, wavelength sensitivity, color sensing, motion sensing, and reaction time, depending on the specific needs of the corresponding creature. This implies that machine learning is not the only solution. A better machine vision system is obviously one that deeply integrates modern algorithmic approaches including machine learning and modern photonics components adapted to the use cases of the systems. How to do this in the best possible way? The 4th European Machine Vision Forum explores current progress and shows where we are heading.
