IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
