IBM Visual Inspector is designed to bring the capabilities of IBM PowerAI Vision to the edge and rapidly enable visual inspections, whether devices are mounted in fixed locations or are hand-held.
It takes complex computer vision models developed on PowerAI Vision, the end-to-end, point-and-click deep-learning platform, and performs inferencing using an iOS/iPadOS device and its integrated camera. The app can even run Core ML models exported from PowerAI Vision, which enables local inferencing on-device without requiring network connectivity.
Specifically, IBM Visual Inspector can:
Leveraging object detection and image classification models trained on PowerAI Vision for remote inferencing or exported to Core ML for local inferencing
Monitoring inspection performance down to each device and its location via an integrated reporting dashboard when multiple devices have been deployed
Providing remote management and configuration of IBM Visual Inspector instances running on remote devices using an integrated supervisor capability
Empowering individuals within enterprises to take action in real-time by leveraging IBM Visual Inspector to determine if defects, damage or other anomalies exist
Delivering instant, actionable notifications to recipients via SMS as well as to other systems by using MQTT
