From facial recognition to medical diagnostics to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence – and specifically the deep learning application of AI – is becoming more prevalent in our everyday lives. Lucidyne Technologies, Inc., the industry leader in technological advances, has brought deep learning to the lumber industry, with the first installation in February of 2017.
Perceptive Sight™ Intelligent Grading is available only on Lucidyne’s GradeScan®. Perceptive Sight™ completely “re-thinks” the way lumber grading is done, and is quite literally a quantum leap in the process. Perceptive Sight™ learns to grade lumber the same way a human learns – by looking at examples. Our team of certified graders looks at thousands of boards sent in by our customers, defines the characteristics on the boards, and sends them to the Perceptive Sight™ system. By evaluating the information on these boards, Perceptive Sight™ learns the attributes that define each type of characteristics, and is quickly able to tell the difference between, for example, a bark pocket and bark encasement.
The enormous leap has the advantages of unrivaled defect detection and keeping your output near perfect on-grade. And more, when something new shows up in your wood basket, you simply collect some samples of it using GradeScan’s QCAssist tablet, and immediately upload the samples to us and we train Perceptive Sight™ to add those new attributes to your lumber library. No more waiting for a software developer to analyze the defect and write new code to integrate to the software.
Our customers are seeing significant recovery with GradeScan® and Perceptive Sight™. Existing GradeScan® customers are upgrading to Perceptive Sight™, and all new GradeScans are shipped with Perceptive Sight™ as standard. In some cases, customers are reporting 100% on grade.
Only Lucidyne delivers an automated lumber scanner that uses deep learning artificial intelligence to grade lumber for maximum fiber and value recovery.
