Head of Information Security

At Drishti

Date Posted: 09 June, 2021



Join Drishti to solve a 100-year-old problem for a $12 trillion dollar industry.

Deep learning-driven action recognition is the next frontier for AI. Build it with us.

Drishti’s mission is to “extend human potential in an increasingly automated world.” The key to realizing this vision in the manufacturing world is data.

For the last 100 years, manufacturers have been basing their entire decision-making philosophy on miniscule datasets, gathered manually by observing operators on the assembly line who are biased by the fact that they know they are being observed. With more than 70% of manufacturing tasks still performed by humans, you realize the value that’s going unrealized due to the fact that humans are effectively invisible to analytics.

Drishti is poised to transform manufacturing by building the first large scale dataset of human activity in manufacturing. We count some of the largest manufacturers in the world as our customers and are growing rapidly.
