VBTI in TV program VPRO Tegenlicht: Technology as religion

25 Jan 2021

At the end of last week, Albert van Breemen, from startup VBTI, located in Hub Twinning, was featured in the VPRO program Tegenlicht.

 

Bernardo Kastrup paid a visit to VBTI, which develops AI systems for industrial applications. Until now, there was no way for AI to accurately recognize every corner of an object without having to feed it a huge amount of data first. That is why Van Breemen has come up with the opposite approach. For example, a machine that recognizes and picks peppers as soon as they are ripe, as can be seen in the broadcast.
By "feeding" the computer a complete 3D model, the algorithm can invent all possible angles of an object itself. He can then recognize them in the real world, and therefore operate more accurately and autonomously. Nice to have a look!
