CVision AI: from imagery to insights

Harnessing the power of computer vision and artificial intelligence.

CVision AI started as a small AI consulting firm with a focus on computer vision algorithms applied to video for customers in the marine vertical. Early on, we found that although we developed algorithms for many diverse applications, there were no suitable tools for deploying those algorithms, nor for managing the video data lifecycle at scale. In collaboration with our partners at NOAA and National Geographic Society, we set out to solve this problem with Tator. Tator is an open-source web platform for video data management, annotation, extract-transform-load, computer vision algorithm inference, and visual analytics. Tator was built to be easily extensible with custom algorithms and custom visualizations, allowing us to quickly meet the video analytics needs of any of our customers. We also develop specialized products in the marine vertical around Tator, including ShoreSight, a boat traffic monitoring system, and Filet Finder, a mobile application for fish species identification from filet images.

Building an image library for fisheries

NOAA hired CVision AI to install computer vision cameras in the wet lab on the Henry B. Bigelow.

Larta helped us solidify our commercialization plan for Tator, including our OpenSaaS business model and setting key near and long-term objectives to acquire new customers and expand our footprint with existing customers. Larta has access to a vast network of experts and professionals which we found invaluable as a very technically focused company. Whenever we needed help or advice, they knew the right person to talk to.
