Metaliquid named a 2019 "COOL VENDOR" by Gartner Inc.


Milan, Italy, 25.09.2019 - Metaliquid, leading provider of AI video analysis solutions, is honoured to announce that it has been named as a Cool Vendor in the “Cool Vendors in AI for Computer Vision: Creating Viable Technology Across Industries” ¹  report by the world’s leading research and advisory company, Gartner Inc. According to the report, “advances in 3D algorithms, image sensors, cameras and deep neural networks have made computer vision a viable technology for a wide variety of applications in many industries. We profile four emerging vendors that could offer practical business benefits for application leaders.”


Further, “Gartner's definition of a Cool Vendor is a small company offering a technology or service that is:

  • Innovative — enables users to do things they couldn't do before
  • Impactful — has or will have a business impact, not just technology for its own sake
  • Intriguing — has caught Gartner's interest during the past six months” ²

The strategic planning assumption offered by Gartner in the report: “By 2022, 99% of video/image content captured for enterprise purposes will be analyzed by machines rather than humans”, highlights how in the upcoming years the adoption of artificial intelligence solutions to analyze videos and extract information will increase exponentially, opening huge opportunities for companies offering state of the art technology.
