“SoftNeuro™”Receives Vision Product of the Year Award: Best AI Technology
at Embedded Vision Summit 2018


Tokyo, Japan – May 25, 2018– Morpho, Inc. (hereinafter, “Morpho”), a global leader in image processing solutions and imaging AI solutions, has been named as the winner of Best AI Technology for SoftNeuro™ along with 7 other category award winners announced as part of the 2018 Vision Product of the Year Awards at the Embedded Vision Summit 2018 held in California, USA.

Open to all Embedded Vision Alliance® Member companies, the Vision Product of the Year Award winning entries are selected by an independent panel of judges based on innovation, impact on customers and the market, and competitive differentiation.

"Deep learning is bringing visual understanding capabilities to a growing variety of applications,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. “But deep learning algorithms consume massive amounts of computation. Fitting these algorithms into mobile and embedded platforms is a key challenge. Morpho's SoftNeuro is a welcome take an innovative approach to addressing this important challenge."

Masayuki Urushiyama, COO of Morpho, said, “We would like to thank the Embedded Vision Alliance for acknowledging SoftNeuro, the world’s fastest inference engine. It is a great honor to receive this Vision Product of the Year Award, and we hope that SoftNeuro will enable high-performance AI acceleration on consumer and other embedded vision devices for many years to come.”
