The image classifier created by Labellio can be downloaded to be integrated into user's apps or products. For example, in many factories products are checked by person to see if the product is good or defective. By using Labellio, it will be possible to create a system that will automatically determine good products from defected ones, without any expert knowledge of image recognition.
Since Labellio was launched on June 2015, it has gained many users worldwide and has contributed to the spread of image recognition by deep learning. By acquiring the image recognition technology developed by one of the most advanced companies in the field, Kyocera Communication Systems aims to enhance its AI technology. Furthermore, through business alliance with AI technology related startups and universities, the company plans further enhance its AI platform.
