In the future, the vast majority of photos and videos recorded won't be seen and used by humans - they'll be seen and used by machines. This week we interview Allan Benchetrit, CEO at Algolux - a Montreal-based AI company focusing on computational imaging.

As it turns out, this is a complicated AI-related problem itself, and Allan walks us through it. If your business uses cameras heavily - or may do so in the future - this interview will provide an around-the-c
