        Amazon today announced the general availability of Amazon Lookout for Vision a cloud service that analyzes images using computer vision to spot product or process defects and anomalies in manufactured goods.
        Amazon says Lookout for Vision which is available in select Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions via the AWS console and supporting partners is able to train an AI model using as few as 30 baseline images.
        Lookout for Vision aims to combat this by injecting a bit of AI into the mix detecting manufacturing and production defects including cracks dents incorrect color and irregular shape in products from their appearance.

        Lookout for Vision will automatically retrain the underlying model so the service continuously improves.
        Customers using Lookout for Vision include GE Healthcare Basler and Sweden-based Dafgards.

        And Amazon’s own Print-On-Demand facility which prints books to fulfill customer orders is tapping Lookout for Vision to automate and scale visual inspection at each step of book manufacturing.
