Among the many possible applications of artificial intelligence, an impressive use case stands out: the visual recognition and analysis of materials and products in video streams and images. This process is the starting point for countless application possibilities in a wide variety of industries. The underlying principle is that pure analytics gains knowledge, however, but it is the artificial intelligence, that puts this knowledge to use. Similar to a human being, a machine must first build up a certain experience - i.e. knowledge - through countless experiments. This know-how is required to reliably identify different objects and states via video analytics.
