    To prevent workplace accidents, construction companies are turning to Vinnie

    The Boston Globe 10/10/2019

    At hundreds of construction sites, a safety inspector named Vinnie is watching the workers, keeping tabs on those who show up without work gloves or use the wrong kind of ladder. Vinnie doesn’t miss much.

    That’s because Vinnie is software — an all-seeing artificial intelligence system developed by a Cambridge startup, Smartvid.io. Chief executive Josh Kanner named the program after a man he knows, a New Jersey construction superintendent with a photographic memory. He sounds a lot like the digital Vinnie, which analyzes photographs at construction sites to spot hazardous conditions. And according to research conducted with the help of Boston’s Suffolk Construction — an investor in Smartvid.io — Vinnie can predict workplace accidents before they happen.
