GumGum Launches The Visionary To Make Artificial Intelligence And Computer Vision Content Accessible To Everyone

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GumGum, an artificial intelligence company with particular expertise in computer vision, today launched The Visionary, an online program made up of original and curated content, a newsletter, awards and more, that focuses on the current trends and future opportunities of artificial intelligence and computer vision. The goal of The Visionary is to provide its readers with easily digestible insights into the fast-changing world of artificial intelligence and computer vision. Prior to The Visionary, there was no centralized, non-technical source on computer vision that sought to bring information on this fascinating field to mass audiences at all knowledge levels. As artificial intelligence remains at the forefront of technology, GumGum recognized the opportunity to make this content relatable and easy to understand. Through original, visual graphics, high-quality curated content and other initiatives, GumGum takes a deep dive into computer vision as the technology further evolves as a leading application of artificial intelligence.

“Computer vision is increasingly becoming mainstream. There’s already many use cases in all aspects of our lives, such as the facial recognition in photo apps, the sense-and-avoid systems in driverless cars and the augmented reality technology found in mobile games. Yet up until The Visionary, there was no single publication delivering wide audiences at all knowledge levels computer vision content. Recognizing this hole in the market, we launched The Visionary to become that valuable resource,” said Ben Plomion, Chief Magic Officer, GumGum. “As artificial intelligence and computer vision leaders, as well as content marketing enthusiasts, we’re excited to be the source for readers who want to stay informed about developments in the field.”

As consumers increasingly turn to visuals as their preferred content across the web, The Visionary will serve as a go-to resource that delivers engaging, informative and inspirational content to readers. From animated videos and interactive infographics to marketing guides and insight from thought leaders, readers will find content that speaks to all of their preferences.
