McDermott/ EYE Business Challenge 2020
The winners of the 2020 McDermott / EYE Business Challenge used AI for optical recognition to detect handwritten changes in technical drawings. They researched and made a testing of “plug-and-play” solutions for real time translations in virtual meetings and made a provision for pattern recognition for P&IDs. Their creative innovations will be applied to McDermott’s operations worldwide.
