Artificial intelligence and computer vision have many benefits in today's world, helping people, companies, and governments make better decisions. In the dentistry and orthodontic fields, they help practitioners provide better treatment to their patients. But, what are these technologies?
Computer vision is about teaching machines to see in much the same way that humans do. This often involves feeding large sets of highly curated training data to machine learning algorithms so that they can learn the patterns and recognize what's happening in any given form of imagery or video.
Craig Weiss and Blair Feldman, co-hosts of the In Your Face Podcast, are joined by Ophir Tanz, the Founder and CEO of Pearl, to talk about how artificial intelligence and computer vision can help dental and orthodontic practices. Ophir also explains what computer vision means, the application of artificial intelligence in dentistry and labs, and the practices that can adopt Pearl’s strategies.
