康耐视收购SUALAB,以提升其在基于深度学习的机器视觉领域的领导地位

本次收购有助于扩展公司在深度学习领域的能力,在工业领域中加速开拓视觉检测自动化,特别是棘手的检测任务机会

作为全球工厂自动化机器视觉和工业读码领域的领导者之一,康耐视公司(NASDAQ:CGNX)今日宣布收购SUALAB,该公司是韩国领先的视觉软件开发商之一,致力于深度学习技术在工业领域的应用。 SUALAB工程设计团队和知识产权的整合,预计将提升康耐视现有深度学习技术ViDi Systems(于2017年4月收购)的研发能力。

“深度学习技术使康耐视能够解决企业领域众多棘手的检测应用,这些检测任务直到现在都只能依靠庞大的人工检测团队来完成。”康耐视总裁兼首席执行官Robert J. Willett表示。“SUALAB大量的知识产权、丰富的工程设计专业知识和广泛的市场覆盖将有助于我们服务于这个快速增长的市场,特别是亚洲市场。目前,数以万计的人工检测员专门负责执行棘手、繁琐且容易出错的目视检测,以识别出电子元器件和子系统中的瑕疵和缺陷,未来,基于深度学习的机器视觉技术将能够以更低的成本更可靠地完成这些检测。”

康耐视创始人兼主席Robert J. Shillma博士表示:“我们非常兴奋地欢迎SUALAB团队加入康耐视;他们与康耐视倡导的‘努力工作、尽情玩耍和快速行动’的企业文化高度契合。”

SUALAB总部设在韩国首尔,于2013年成立,联合创始人之一Song Kiyoung将加入康耐视,帮助领导全球在工业机器视觉领域专注于研究深度学习技术最大的工程师团队。

“自SUALAB公司成立以来,我们的目标一直很明确,即成为基于深度学习的视觉检测领域的全球领导者,”SUALAB首席执行官兼联合创始人Song Kiyoung表示。通过加入康耐视,我们实现了这个目标。我们计划将共同加快努力,以帮助更多的客户以更快速、轻松且具有性价比的方式解决复杂的视觉应用。”

更多有关本次收购的信息将在康耐视第三季度财报电话会议(美国东部时间2019年10月28日下午5点)上披露。
