This year’s submission and acceptance totals both set records for the world’s premier computer vision conference, which had never before accepted more than 1000 papers.
Last December some 9,000 attendees packed a single venue in Montreal for a week-long academic conference. NeurIPS was completely sold out, the latest indication of just how hot AI is nowadays. As AI and machine learning continue to ignite discussion across a wide variety of disciplines, novel approaches to the tech are also garnering interest.
At last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019) in Las Vegas, Synced visited pet tech booths to explore the current state and future directions of AI powered tech and smart offerings aimed at our furry companions. We found smart pet technologies can generally be divided into six categories: Tracking, Monitoring, Playing, Feeding, Toilets, and Bathing.
