Computer vision is one of the most important technologies today to drive digital transformation everywhere. One of the best examples of the computer vision importance is that Tesla uses it as the base technology for their autonomous driving features. However, what's rarely described in computer vision is the influence of proprietary data. Here is the difference:
As you can see there is significantly more detected information on the right image. Hence, this allows to build really sophisticated use cases. Therefore, let's imagine you want to build a prototype of such app that does hardware classification via camera/image and build automatic inventory. Roughly speaking, you would need to:
- Get resources to collect data from field;
- Get resources with domain expertise to label the data;
- Get a partner/contractor to build image recognition model (if there is no in-house data scientist team)
- Get a partner/contractor to develop an Unity application (Augmented Reality demo)
- Get a partner/contractor to develop an iOS/Android application
Total cost is now around 43 000 which is not bad and you will probably get what you want.
Now let's look at the alternative option where Bitskout platform is a part of your company. You just run several campaigns:
Yes, launching a campaign to build a mobile app in a company is a kind of stretch, and I use it as an example of task.
And from cost perspective the project might look like this:
Now, we are definitely making some assumptions - as all campaigns are voluntary you will need to find the right balance between the reward and the task so that employees participate. However, what's very important here - you've just boost motivation of your employees. They participated in something interesting, they got to show their skill (which might not be their primary function), they got real reward. In the world where only 17% of employees claim that they are engaged, increasing motivation has a direct impact on revenue growth.
Your people have a lot of skills that are not their primary job but are their passion. Bitskout can help uncover those and route this energy to tangible results for the company and employee wellbeing.
