Stealth is collaborating with leading research institutes and experts across AI technologies to develop proprietary technologies and deliver innovative solutions.

Focused on using computers to analyse photos and video Stealth is developing proprietary computer vision technologies, a branch of AI that uses machine learning to quickly process and analyse visual data from photos or video. Computer vision is not one technology, but several that are combined to create intelligence. In the end, computer vision is a method for acquiring, processing and analysing images, and can automate, through machine learning techniques, what human visual analysis can perform. Visual data is a high-growth emerging industry with 44.3 billion cameras forecast to exist in the world by 2022.
