Apple this year is listed as a “Silver Sponsor” for the event. It’s unclear what sort of investment this represents, but it’s the third-highest sponsorship tier there is. Other sponsors include General Motors, Qualcomm, Intel, and many more. Apple is also credited as an exhibitor.

Representing Apple at the event is Eitan Hirsh, who leads the company’s depth sensing research and development team. He will give a speech entitled “Depth Sensing @ Apple: True Depth Camera” that offers an overview of the technologies that power the iPhone X True Depth sensor:

We’ll give an overview on Apple’s iPhone X True Depth camera system, its design and capabilities. We’ll also describe algorithmic layers which are used in some of the features it enables, and describe how it can be used by developers.

The Israel Machine Vision Conference, or IMVC, is a conference focused on all types of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Topics include AI, deep learning, autonomous learning, eye tracking, robotics, and much more.

The image processing, computer vision, machine learning and deep learning communities in Israel are world class leaders in these fields, with large and dynamic presence in both industry and academia. IMVC is a unique opportunity for companies from diverse industrial fields to meet with research groups of academic institutions heading machine vision research in Israel.

The event will take place on March 6th at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv. We’ll have coverage of Hirsh’s discussion on the iPhone X True Depth sensor.
