SmartMore received a Certificate of Merit in the Smart Business (Emerging Technologies) Category at the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2022 with its smart industrial platform (SMore ViMo).

Established in 2006, the Hong Kong ICT Awards have been recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong's ICT talent and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs. The Emerging Technologies set up this year under Smart Business category reflects the current development of technology and acknowledges remarkable products and applications that enhance the effectiveness of the industry.

The awarded product, SMore ViMo is a visual inspection platform that provides a toolset to support and elevate the entire manufacturing process. Integrating a number of built-in systems, including a data management system (Vi-Data), solution design system (Vi-Studio), operating environment (Vi-Lab) and online inference system (Vi-Engine). ViMo makes these systems work in tandem to create a platform where production and operational standards can be automated.

The judging panel acknowledged that SMore ViMo demonstrates efficient use of advanced technology to address the “bottle-neck” of a production process (i.e., final QA and checking) through building up a set of Foundation Models (for different industry applications and scenarios) that allows fast development of new models and a reasonable accuracy with just a small number of training data.

Based on SmartMore’s leading deep learning capabilities, model training can be implemented and quickly deployed without needing to code or any domain expertise in computer vision, greatly lowering the threshold for adoption of smart technologies. The platform has been applied to over 1,000 industrial application scenarios, facilitating the transition to Smart Manufacturing.
