My name is Jarno Ralli and I have a background in computer vision and industrial automation. I currently work as the technical director at pointvision. We are a 3D technology consulting company with the idea of connecting companies and brands that use 3D technology, such as 3D scanners, with suppliers of such technology. Apart from just connecting players in the field of 3D technology, we also do complete turn-key based projectes. Prior to pointvision, I worked at Fuel3D (Oxfordshire, U.K) as the technical lead for algorithm development related to 3D scanners.

I have more than 9 years of experience in the field of computer vision, having worked both in the academy and the industry. My expertise covers techniques such as stereo vision, shape from shading (SFS), 3D reconstruction, image segmentation, calcuting movement based on optical flow, and so on. In December 2011 I obtained the title of P.hD from the University of Granada, Spain in the field of computer vision. My doctoral thesis deals with topics such as image registration (stereo- and optical flow) and automatic segmentation of depth maps. Apart from computer vision, I have more than five years of experience in the field of industrial automation.
