RAI Wins VentureBeat's AI Innovator at The Edge
July 19, 2022
RAI took the top honors at VentureBeat’s 2022 Awards acknowledging leaders in AI innovation. RAI Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Susan Sly, and Head Sales Engineer and Co-Founder, Paul Mills, were on hand to receive the award for AI Innovator at The Edge. In this category, the competition was steep. RAI beat out robotics company Boston Dynamics and the AI innovation team at Ford to take home the prize.
“It is a tremendous honor for our team to be recognized for their hard work in AI,” said Sly. “RAI is also among the two percent of US-based tech companies that have at least one woman founder. This award is also for all of the female-led companies.”
RAI was nominated for the award by Andrea Huels, Head of AI for Lenovo. Throughout 2022, Lenovo has been a key partner for RAI featuring the company as one of its top ISV’s (independent software vendors) on stage at the Lenovo Accelerate Conference in Las Vegas and at Lenovo’s headquarters where Ms. Sly and RAI Co-CEO and Co-Founder, Aykut Dengi, presented the RAI solution to a group of analysts and executives.
In 2022, RAI is undertaking a large-scale computer vision deployment in the retail sector across fifteen states. The use of computer vision at the edge provides heightened security and cost savings to RAI’s retailers and healthcare customers.
RAI provides advanced visual intelligence in real-time through existing security cameras. Analytics include lot occupancy and dwell time, heat mapping, lot-to-store conversion, store analytics, queue data, and allow for rich experimentation for customers. All data is visualized on a customizable dashboard allowing for customers to make decisions that improve operations, efficiency, and ultimately improve the bottom line.
Visual AI adoption is growing across several sectors as it provides actionable data that is not available through other methods such as point of sale. RAI has been delivering visual intelligence since 2017 and is a trusted leader in the sector.
