January Edition
” We are what our thoughts
have made us”

Swami Vivekananda


Why do humans dominate the earth? What was the Sapiens’ secret of success? How did we manage to settle so rapidly in so many distant and ecologically different habitats? How did we push all other human species into oblivion? Among the answers crafted for these raging questions in the immensely popular book Sapiens: A Brief History to Mankind, the one that stands apart is “Our success is intimately linked to scale”. Building an aggressive, outcome oriented, positive and collaborative mindset is the foundation for any big change. Scale and Dominance is a powerful call to break out individualism, small wins, immediate gains and emerge as leaders obliviating all deterrents.We welcome you all to this edition of Phier and 2021-(Year of Scale and Dominance for Cogniphi), commemorating ours CEO’s words “Don’t settle for what works, settle for what dominates and that which will scale”.
Brief & Note

2021-Year  of Scale and  Dominance

The pivotal change that I expect to realise in this dream of “2021 – Year of scale and dominance” is a change in mindset. Building an aggressive, outcome oriented, positive and collaborative mindset is the foundation for any big change and we need to institutionalise this mindset within each one of us. Being focused, being bold, being organised, converging , being positive, being transparent, bidding ego good bye, being collaborative, differentiating feedback from insult etc will automatically come as “Scale and Dominance” is a strong call to break out from these deterrents. For example, don’t settle for what works, settle for what dominates and that which will scale. Don’t relax with a small win rather scale it to many many more achievements. Everything we do henceforth, we need to wear the ‘Dominance and Scale’ glasses and course correct our objectives.

So join hands with me and re-plan your year, build new objectives, bake this daring dream into your minds – Together let us make 2021 an year of scale and dominance for Cogniphi – Rohith


World’s largest multinational corporation deploys AIVI


AIVI’s Contactless Checkout solution is currently being  piloted for the world’s largest technology multinational corporation  , headquartered in Silicon Valley. Adding to the excitement is  that we will be piloting a similar product suite for 2 global hotel chains in the USA. The Contactless Checkout solution will be deployed in the cafeteria for identifying multiple food items ranging from burgers, sandwiches, pizza slices, cookies, soups , salads to various packaged items. AIVI will detect and identify the food items picked up by the customers and share the details for Point of Sale(POS)processing.

This Next Gen Touchless AI , will provide the employees and clients of the Tech giant with  safe, easy and fast checkout while reducing  labor cost, boosting sales and loyalty programs for the company. This  project is  really  challenging as  AIVI has to  detect  with accuracy a large set of similar food items with  just slight variations  in  texture, colour and  proportions. An added challenge is that the cafeteria menu keeps evolving  on a regular  basis,  leaving  short windows  for pattern training and  on  board.  We are also  filing  for  a  joint  Intellectual Property with UST for the  product suite, which is expected to have a wide market. With this particular solution we enter a much sought after market, the Food & Beverage industry. 

VisionAI featured in Intel Insight Tech

A major milestone for us last year was with UST support, our healthy store and back to work solution got accepted by Intel as a MRS(market ready solution), a major achievement whose dividends will go beyond just the listing in intel website. It has started a new bonding and relation with Intel and their AI @ edge ecosystem. A massive boost for our efforts.

One of the leading causes of workplace injuries is STF – an abbreviation for the three dreaded words, namely Slip, Trip, and Fall. In Australia, there are more deaths from Slips, Trips, and Falls than there are from fires.

If businesses and individuals take the initiative to keep their property safe for customers, other guests, and employees, then they can take preemptive action and prevent these accidents before they happen. This is where AIVI plays a leading role.
