Scientists at Cambridge Consultants (Cambridge, UK) have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that creates clear, undistorted views of the real world from a damaged or obscured moving image. Based on recent advances in deep learning, the solution named DeepRay has the power to see clearly in difficult, unpredictable situations and could transform numerous machine vision and imaging applications, from autonomous driving to empowering healthcare professionals with more accurate medical imaging.

Cambridge Consultants, a breakthrough innovation specialist, helps its healthcare clients develop robust, scalable platforms capable of handling large amounts of data from devices, leveraging recent advancements in connectivity, data science, machine learning and digital services. DeepRay is the latest technology to emerge from the company’s Digital Greenhouse, a unique experimental environment where data scientists and engineers explore and cultivate cutting-edge deep learning techniques.

In recent years, machine vision systems have progressed rapidly, although their performance can quickly deteriorate if a view is obscured by rain, smoke, dirt or other obstructions. This has serious implications for real-world applications where image quality can be degraded by environmental factors or damage to camera-based systems. DeepRay learns what real-world scenes and objects look like and also how they appear with various image distortions applied. When presented with a distorted image it has never seen before, the technology can then form a real-time judgment of the ‘true’ scene behind the distortion. Having this “mind’s eye” ability allows DeepRay to outperform humans and existing machine vision approaches in reconstructing clear images under difficult conditions.

“Never before has a new technology enabled machines to interpret real-world scenes the way humans can – and DeepRay can potentially outperform the human eye. This takes us into a new era of image sensing and will give flight to applications in many industries, including automotive, agritech and healthcare,” said Tim Ensor, Commercial Director for Artificial Intelligence at Cambridge Consultants. “The ability to construct a clear view of the world from live video, in the presence of continually changing distortion such as rain, mist or smoke, is transformational. We’re excited to be at the leading edge of developments in AI. DeepRay shows us making the leap from the art of the possible, to delivering breakthrough innovation with significant impact on our client’s businesses.”
