We were honored that H.E. Bui The Duy, Deputy Minister of Science & Technology, delivered the opening speech, setting the tone for our Summit. It was also great hearing from keynote speaker, Dr. James Kuffner, CEO of the Toyota Research Institute – Advanced Development, Inc., about Toyota’s latest advancements with autonomous vehicles. We’ll be sure to look for Level 4 cars in Tokyo next year! And anyone interested in working as a Machine Learning Engineer, the highest-paid IT job in Vietnam, can now apply interview tips Huyen Nguyen shared with us.

Applying Deep Learning for Autodocking Calibration on the Ohmni Robot


Deep learning is a powerful tool when applied to robotics. This article discusses how OhmniLabs, Kambria’s sister company, uses deep learning for autodocking calibration in its telepresence robot.

The Ohmni robot has the capability of finding its docking station and moving to that station for recharging. Calibration between the camera image and the robot coordinates in the real world is an important step of autodocking.  OhmniLabs has also built an infrastructure for model training and serving that allows for continuous improvement of the deep learning models. This architecture is deployed as part of OhmniLabs’ deep learning AI framework. Click here to read the full article
