The poisoned apple effect

~ Breaking the chains of Traditional Machine Vision ~


In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the jealous stepmother of the protagonist orders the title character to be killed. Snow White escapes and is later discovered hiding in the seven dwarfs’ cottage. To further her evil agenda, the stepmother disguises herself as a hag to deliver a poisoned apple, which causes Snow White to fall into a deathlike sleep that can only be broken by a kiss from a prince. Here Harel Boren, CEO of Inspekto, founder of Autonomous Machine Vision, explains how manufacturers and their QA managers can ensure their QA story has a happy ending, just like Snow White’s.

Road Trips Made Easy With Good Engineering

Embarking on a road trip used to be a fairly risky business: you’d check your oil and a few other key components of your vehicle, set off, and be fairly sure that you wouldn’t go the full length of a trip without some form of calamity forcing you off the road and under the bonnet. Nowadays, vehicles are a good deal more stable and well-engineered, and towing trailers or caravans are likewise made to withstand the long distances that ambitious road trips entail. This article praises the ease with which great engineering has made road trips a breeze.

Tips for Engineering Logistics Planning

In the field of engineering, it’s almost always the case that if something needs transporting, it needs transporting perfectly. You’ll need to make sure everything’s planned, that the journey itself is as straightforward as possible and that the item you’re transporting ultimately arrives in one piece. Poorly-transported parts can encounter damage that makes the item useless, and seeing as these are specially-manufactured items, that’s an expensive loss to take on yourself. That’s why this article deals with the logistics of transporting engineering goods from A to B, and how to do it with the least bother.
