Spearheaded by Cloudian, Dentsu, Inc., and Intel Corporation, the project employs AI-based vehicle recognition using HyperStore’s object storage and deep learning capabilities to present relevant display ads to drivers based on vehicle make and model. The initiative is currently implemented in one smart billboard located in Roppongi, Tokyo, Japan, and is projected to expand to other areas within the city in 2017.
“This technology demonstrates how Cloudian object storage revolutionises the economics of data-intensive applications such as machine learning, making futuristic solutions now a part of our daily lives,” said Mike Tso, CEO, Cloudian. “The world’s data is growing at an exponential rate, a trend that will only accelerate as IoT and machine learning technologies gain momentum. Cloudian strives to leverage the world’s data to create powerful new experiences for businesses and consumers.”
