“Auto-pilot technologies bring exciting opportunities for AI companies like NexOptic,” said Richard Geruson, Chairman of NexOptic Technology Corp. “AI based object recognition is a critical component of these systems,” Rich Geruson continues, “and being able to perform effectively at night, in inclement weather conditions and in other challenging environments will be key to any company wanting to succeed in this rapidly evolving industry.”
