The proliferation of cameras and sensors has led to explosive growth in image data—and tools and services to manage and extract value from it. Used for years by industrial and manufacturing companies, computer vision (CV) has emerged as the primary method for capturing, processing, and analyzing static images and real-time video to extract vital information for fast decision-making.

Join the Computer Vision Roundtable hosted by TIBCO Software with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to discuss topics including:

- Real-world application of computer vision in a variety of industries
- The role cloud and edge computing plays in a successful CV strategy
- Challenges with developing, managing, and deploying cloud-to-edge Machine Learning models

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 7:00:00 PM Online event


Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!
