Shining the Spotlight 2024

Computer Vision and AI products unveiled.

Our expertise is in business and technology leadership, from our time working in CTO functions for our clients, we have seen the demand for AI tools skyrocket. But the current landscape, or even what tools are available right now – are much less understood.

“Adopting these tools has a huge upside and should be used, BUT, much more discussion on these topics are needed to ensure safe and ethical uses of these technologies.”
