What is Computer Vision
Computer vision is a branch of artificial intelligence that enables computers to see and identify images, processing them as humans would. Using images from cameras and videos, deep learning models enable machines to accurately identify and classify the objects.
How Does Computer Vision Work?
Computer vision can be confused with image processing. However, computer vision is a more high-level process. It deals with the analysis of an image. In the CV process, the input is an image while the output is the interpretation of an image. Computer vision works by identifying different components in the image.
These components are then analysed. A simple application sees computer vision identifying the edges in an image. Computer vision enables pattern recognition or shapes to be identified.
More advanced applications such as Kenoobi AI allow for animals or people to be recognised
How can Kenya / Africa use AI Computer Vision Applications?
Applications of computer vision in Africa can range from developing accurate facial recognition software to manufacturers inspecting bottles in their manufacturing production line, to organizing information for example indexing databases of images.
AI Computer Vision Applications in the Financial Sector
Computer Vision is already impacting on the banking and finance industry.
Kenoobi AI can assist financial institutions in Kenya/Africa to develop computer vision-driven image recognition applications. This allows for passports, driver’s license and ID cards to be accurately checked.
Kenoobi AI models allow customers to use their mobile device to take a photograph of their ID. This can then be sent to the bank where CV software verifies the authenticity of the document.
Using CV systems to automate authentication helps to speed up identity checks. This, in turn, speeds up business processes and financial transactions.
While images can often be rejected due to poor quality, Kenoobi AI is able to correct image faults. Our algorithms correct common faults such as distortion or poor lighting. This application of computer vision will enable customers to verify their identity in a quick and secure way.
By automating identification, human error is removed from the process. While the convenience of simply scanning your ID means that transactions and checks can be carried out quickly and securely.

AI Computer Vision to Diagnose Disease
Computer vision can be used to help diagnose health conditions. This is enables lifesaving interventions to be made. When used alongside sensors, smart healthcare becomes a reality.
Kenoobi AI can help healthcare institutions to identify and detect disease at its earliest stage. This application of CV will not only be accurate, but it also cost-effective and non-invasive.
Consequently, patients will be diagnosed more easily and reliably.This means that medical intervention can begin soon, helping to save sight or lives.

AI Computer Vision in the Retail Industry
Retailers can use computer vision-driven facial recognition software such as Kenoobi AI to identify valued customers the moment they enter a store. An integrated app then informs the sales associate of the customers purchasing history, preferences and other potentially valuable information.
This application of AI-driven analytics helps to deliver a personalised service. Retailers computer vision to power systems that can help stores reduce theft and other losses.
Using AI Computer Vision, retailers can also detects checkout errors and also identifies cashiers who avoid scanning products. Kenoobi AI can be easily installed into the stores existing video cameras and point of sale systems, making integration easy.
Industrial Applications of AI Computer Vision
Computer vision software can prove useful in helping monitor the functionality of industrial sites such as wells or factories. Kenoobi AI can help manufacturers use CV to monitor remote wells, industrial facilities and site security.
This systems are capable of providing regular 15-minute images from the site. They also provide real-time or live video monitoring. This application helps to cut employee costs, and save time by optimising supervision processes.
Kenoobi AI Computer vision and sensors can also be used to monitor the health of the critical infrastructure. Should a critical plant or tool, such as a drill, fail delays can be costly and lengthy as engineers make repairs.
This also creates a backlog, causing productivity to fall. This is known as predictive maintenance, and it can save companies both time and money. Many oil and gas producers such as Shell are using predictive maintenance to keep their equipment in prime condition.
AI Computer vision can also be used for warehouse inventory tracking. Warehouse inventory management can be a complicated, time-consuming task. This is particularly the case in large or busy warehouses that are operational for large periods of the day.
Kenoobi AI operates autonomously and is able to integrate with existing warehouse management systems and devices such as motion sensors. This approach is around 60% cheaper than traditional management methods.
Helping Business to Optimise Marketing with AI Computer Vision
Computer vision and image detection can allow brands to monitor online channels such as social media platforms. Here they can identify threats to their market dominance, such as an emerging, popular product.
This is known as social listening and it can also be used to help a brand to grow its own influence or maintain a good reputation. Also, when shopping online, most people use the search bar or the filter feature to sift through available products.
For this to function effectively a retailer must assign each product with a range of tags. There is no standard procedure for tagging products, this means the search terms required to find the same product will vary between websites.
This can be confusing for customers, especially if they are unfamiliar with technical terms.
Kenoobi AI can help brands use computer vision and AI tools to develop Visual Search. This enables visual product discovery, simplifying the product search process and eliminating the need for tags.
The user simply selects an image of a product that interests them. They are then taken to a range of similar products, allowing them to browse their options easily.
Optimising Agriculture with AI Computer Vision
Healthy crops and livestock are vital for any farm.
Kenoobi AI is using sophisticated technology to help farmers monitor the health of their crops and livestock. With CV and predictive image analysis, we have developed a system that is able to identify an individual cow.
Once identified the system can then monitor key information such as the animal’s food and water intake or their behaviour patterns.
AI-driven algorithms process this information, automatically warning the farmer is a problem is detected.
Similar Kenoobi AI models provide all-weather crop analysis. This monitors not only the health of the plant but also its rate of growth and predicts when it is likely to ripen.
In addition to helping stores to operate with minimal human intervention. Kenoobi AI can help your organization improve business operations. Learn more on our brand website: ai.kenoobi.com
