Title:

The Use of Augmented Reality, Machine Vision and Deep Learning Tools to Enhance Technical Visual Support Services

Abstract:

Technical support service over the phone can be a frustration and costly process for the client and for the technical support agent.

At TechSee Augmented Vision Ltd. we have developed a platform that adds visual aids using video stream over the smartphone accompanied by augmentation of symbols and annotations superimposed  on the video stream in a real time. In addition, we are using machine vision and deep learning algorithms empowered by transfer learning for devices classifications and segmentation. This enable the platform to support the agents and the clients by proposing solutions based on lesson learned in previous technical support sessions.
