SmartSens Launches "SmartSensor" AI Platform

Smartsens launches its "SmartSensor" AI platform based on 3D integration of image sensor with an image analysis processor. The company has selected TSMC's 3D chip manufacturing process for its "SmartSensor Platform" as its development platform, and hopes to work with leading partners to achieve innovative "smart sensor" designs, further promoting the Internet of Things industry and development of artificial intelligence technology.

Wang Xiaoyong, VP of systems and algorithms at SmartSens, said: "Sensor-side computing and 'smart sensor chips' are one of the major trends in the future development of the IoT industry. To achieve this innovation, it is impossible to rely solely on sensor chip manufacturers. SmartSens launched the 'SmartSensor Platform' to explore the infinite possibilities of 'smart sensor chip' innovation by leveraging the strength of the entire industry through close collaboration with partners across the entire industry chain."


  1. Automated massive surveillance technology is the dark side of image sensor applications in my opinion. It makes me sad to see people touting this as a positive achievement for society. Hmmm, Dark Side Imaging = DSI. A new term?

    1. Yes, there is a need for us not to celebrate technology without thinking about it consequences and acting on shaping them. I think Eric is pointing out that this has a real chance of violating Asimov's 2nd Law for Robots:

      Second Law
      A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
      First Law
      A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

    2. You have absolutely right! This function should be restricted only for special applications.

  2. 2nd law violated:
