The Forrester New Wave™: Computer Vision Consultancies, Q4 2020Microsoftteams Image (1)

Computer vision, how computers gain high-level understanding from digital images or videos, has been one of the driving factors that’s contributed to the success of AI in recent years. From augmented reality games to self-driving cars to Apple’s Facial Unlock feature, it has deeply impacted our lives. And beyond these more consumer-related use cases, there are real-world applications across industry verticals like healthcare, financial services, retail, and more.

According to Forrester’s report, “Perficient is proficient at AI strategy development and document automation.” While the report frames us as a “Contender” having “…so far undertaken relatively few CV projects,” it also states that we “would be a good fit as part of a broader engagement or ongoing partnership” and that “…it makes sense to tap Perficient’s CV capabilities either within or as an extension to an existing engagement.”
