Message from CEO

代表取締役社長 Andrew Schwabecher
CEO Andrew Schwabecher

As a newcomer to Japan I have always been inspired by the Japanese spirit of Omotenashi and how even simple customer experiences in Japanese society made are extraordinary. The Japanese standards of quality in products and services are always extremely high compared to many countries in the world because of the rituals, process and systems the Japanese culture has created.

In recent years, Computer Vision Technology combined with AI and Deep Learning has opened up the opportunity to improve our offline, or real world, experiences by making them more efficient and convenient.

Our goal at Japan Computer Vision Corp. is to use technology to amplify the spirit of Omotenashi in office buildings, retail shops and public spaces using computer vision and AI, thus enhancing people’s lives.

To realize this vision we are afforded the great opportunity to work with our parent company and business partner SoftBank Group, and its portfolio companies, and our technology partner SenseTime, the market leader in computer vision technology. SenseTime brings one of the world’s best teams in AI and deep learning and a prolific contribution to AI and computer vision academic research.

Our opportunity in Japan is to advance the building access and retail markets using this technology with an ethical approach that is beneficial to our human rights, security, personal privacy and freedom. Through our consciousness of these values we can create products that will define a new world in which we would enjoy living in. Our commitment is that we will constantly check our products and solutions to ensure that we respect these fundamental values and extend the spirit of Omotenashi to everyone.
