Image Recognition Software Aids ENR Photo Contest Judges Again

ENR, 1/11/2018

A machine-learning, artificial-intelligence system designed to flag safety hazards on construction sites has once again provided a backstop for the judges of ENR’s annual photo contest. Known as “VINNIE”— Very Intelligent Neural Network for Insight and Evaluation— the software uses object recognition technologies similar to those in an autonomous vehicle to analyze construction photos and videos for risks. Developed two years ago by Cambridge, Mass.-based Smartvid.io Inc., the system matches pixels in images to a library of objects to automatically tag or note the absence of specific items, such as hardhats, gloves, or safety colors.

GPS & Telematics: The digital future

Construction Europe, 1/3/2018

The digital world is moving forward at a pace that would not have seemed credible a few short years ago, and what was simply an extended version of a car satnav is now as complicated and diverse as anyone could want it to be. Communication with a machine now takes in a multitude of different functions, much of it using the cloud – still a relatively new idea – and all of it revolving around data. Without data, there is nothing.
