Norwegian-founded vision technology company Huddly has acquired a local AI startup Epigram in order to further develop its “intelligent camera” tech. The deal will see Epigram’s “tools, IP and all [seven] AI engineers” move over to Huddly, the company stated in a press release.
Founded in 2017, Epigram has developed a set of tools for big data processing and has worked with a number of clients including Huddly itself. One of the project it’s helped with was an extension of the AI models that run on Huddly’s smart cameras, training them to detect and count people in real time.
Huddly’s IQ camera is marketed as an AI-powered product that has features like framing all people in the room and performing advanced space analytics.
