Switching lenses, finding viewpoints. We're all about intelligent imaging; the good, the bad & the ugly. Imaging Mind is a @servicesvalley project.
Images play a major role in human history. Early humans shared knowledge through images, expressing feelings and capturing information by drawing on stone and wood. Today, we encounter images in various forms throughout our lives on a daily basis; images define our culture. They still our hunger for information in a connected world and their influence will only grow as we head into the future.
People create more images each day and share them to social networks via mobile platforms and applications. Instagram changed the way we edit and share our photos with over 55 million filter-enhanced photos uploaded each day. 3D printing is on course to change the way we manufacture products, and 3D imaging is going to play an important role in that process.
Intelligent cameras and software (e.g. object recognition) will allow for interpreting the sheer volume of images in the cloud. New hardware and software innovations enable new applications and services within the imaging industry. The imaging domain has shifted from analog to digital and is now on its way via connected imaging to intelligent imaging.
The Imaging Mind Project aims to explore the new solutions and services that derive from this journey. We follow these solutions and services and report on them from different perspectives ranging from the experimental and artistic to the practical and businesslike. With these reports we found and create our community.
From this community, we form a vibrant ecosystem around the future of imaging that will be of great value to all parties involved.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
