Electricity suppliers are working hard to deliver the right amount of power to the grid in the right time. The amount should correspond to the expected consumption of their customers. A lot is at stake - though the regulators would buy out or supply the excess/missing power in most cases, incorrect estimates of the consumption by energy suppliers are penalized.
Measuring the utility consumption of end users is one of the principal processes for every utility provider. Yet, the technology for “smart” electricity, gas, water or heat consumption metering is still immature and their rollout is therefore slow. The meters must be changed one by one - a process that would take years even in the most tech savvy utility companies - until the transition from the traditional analog meters would be complete.
The evaluation of a human embryo is among the biggest challenges in human infertility treatments, specifically in the In-Vitro Fertilization method. Evaluating the viability of a fertilized egg and embryo is a complex process, which calls for extensive manual labor while demanding high amounts of concentration, sometimes lasting up to several hours per day.
Private sellers and buyers, real estate professionals, banks, insurance companies, investment funds and other stakeholders oftentimes depend heavily on the accurate value estimation of their real estate properties.
In the search of finding a cure for Diabetes, CogneXa teamed up with IKEM to produce a program that can automatically evaluate the quality of pancreatic islets.
Pancreatic islets, or Islets of Langerhans, are clusters of cells containing beta cells, which are responsible for the production of the hormone insulin. Beta cells are essential in regulating blood glucose and maintaining normal blood sugar levels.
The cost of one's car insurance is generally calculated based on the number of miles one drives. But that doesn’t always have to be in the consumer's best interest, because the numbers are usually a rough estimate.
A car insurance company approached Cognexa to develop a pay-per-mile system, which heavily relies on reading vast amounts of dashboard images (odometer readings) to read car mileages, while incorporating security measures to identify potential manipulation with the picture (fraud prevention)
