About OrCam Technologies

OrCam Technologies offers a computer vision device that includes a miniature video camera and processing unit that can be attached to eyeglasses. Through a computer vision algorithm, the device is able to vocalize texts it encounters, such as street signs, a restaurant menu, a newspaper, or a book, to those with vision problems. It can identify supermarket products and distinguish different denominations of bills. The identification is communicated to the user verbally with almost no delay from the moment the information is requested by pointing. It can be clipped to a belt or placed into a pocket, and it needs to be kept charged.

Israel’s OrCam Wins CES 2022 Innovation Award For 3rd Consecutive Year

Dec 6, 2021

The OrCam MyEye PRO magnetically mounts on the frames of eyeglasses and instantly reads aloud printed text and digital screens. Courtesy OrCam Technologies, the Jerusalem-based firm known for its AI-driven vision assistance tech, has nabbed its third consecutive win at the annual CES 2022 Innovation Awards. The company was named an honoree in the Accessibility and Health and Wellness categories by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), for its MyEye PRO voice-activated wearable device for people who are blind, visually impaired, or have reading challenges. The firm, founded by Professor Amnon Shashua and Ziv Aviram, the same duo that founded Mobileye, received the award ahead of CES 2022, the annual trade show organized by the CTA where the biggest brands and global innovators in the consumer electronics industry come together to showcase groundbreaking technologies. While last year’s CES was an all-digital online event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CES 2022 is scheduled to return to Las Vegas in-person next month. The event takes place from January 5 to January 8, 2022. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. The OrCam MyEye PRO is a lightweight wearable tech device the size of a finger. Courtesy. OrCam’s MyEye PRO is a lightweight wearable tech device that assists people who have visual challenges. The portable device, which is the size of a finger, magnetically mounts on the frames of eyeglasses and instantly reads aloud any printed text (books, menus, signs) and digital screens (computers, smartphones), and recognizes faces and identifies products/bar codes, money notes, and colors, offline and in real-time, with complete data protection. The device’s interactive Smart Reading feature enables users to tailor their assistive reading experience, and the Orientation feature assists with guidance and identification of objects. The newly released “Hey OrCam” enables control of all device features and settings hands-free, using voice commands. Rafi Fischer, OrCam’s public and media relations director, tells NoCamels the voice activation/understanding capabilities made possible by the interactive ‘Hey OrCam’ querying puts this technology on par with the major global tech players’ voice-activated assistants. “Yet there is a significant difference as OrCam’s tech is integrated on assistive-specific platforms that change the lives of those with visual impairments, learning and reading challenges,” he explains, “We enable rich, more independent life experiences.” “We have developed significant device enhancements in the OrCam MyEye PRO, breaking new ground in personal AI technology. We are proud that CES has once again recognized our innovative spirit and impact on both the accessibility and health & wellness domains,” said Tzahi Israel, SVP Sales & Marketing of OrCam in a statement. “Developed in direct response to our user’s feedback, OrCam MyEye PRO enables an entirely new level of accessibility for people with visual impairments and those with reading challenges,” said Prof. Amnon Shashua, OrCam Technologies Co-founder and Co-Chairman. “The new integrations allow OrCam MyEye PRO to listen to, comprehend, and respond to natural voice commands, thereby transforming the device’s complete operation into an intuitive and enjoyable user experience.” “OrCam has the largest R&D team in the world focused on engineering assistive technology for people who are blind and visually impaired. This enables us to concentrate on developing features that can truly transform a person’s life. Integrating the voice-activated, ‘Hey OrCam’ personal assistant and the ‘Smart Reading’ feature, OrCam’s versatile text-to-speech engine, provides unprecedented independence for tens of thousands of users globally. These developments allow people to work more effectively, pursue higher education, and go about their daily lives with confidence empowered by this device.” Sign up for our free weekly newsletter

Kjaya is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Semi-Autonomous Adaptive Neural and Genetic Segmentation of Medical Images. Their Phase I project will implement a physician-assisted, real-time adaptive system for the segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. Medical image segmentation seeks to change the representation of an anatomical structure, making it more easily analyzed. Because of the extreme variability of these structures in biological systems, current idiosyncratic manual methods currently in use are tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Image segmentation cannot in general be programmatically solved. The proposed system is a Neural Network (NN) based adaptation of the individual data using parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and coupled with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based adaptation across GPU cores. The system will build a diagnostically useful segmentation of the anatomical feature within seconds from an area of interest outlined by a physician using a Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Fast growth in medical imaging overwhelms available diagnosticians. An intuitive and inexpensive system to quickly and accurately deliver diagnostic relevant segmentation of medical images offers tremendous commercial value. Currently, each scan requires approximately 50 minutes of manual preparation. The diagnosis and treatment of an estimated 20 percent of diseases benefit from medical imaging. Newer scanning technologies have increased in resolution, but such techniques have not made segmenting easier or faster. The proposed method will enable more diagnostics to be done with the quality controlled directly by physicians.
