Technology allows you to fine tune customization. Customization , modeling or 3D printing , many innovations are beautiful promises for the future of the optical sector . But if there is one that pushes customization to its maximum, it is artificial intelligence . Long described in fiction as a disease of the future, today it offers a pleasing outlook, whether in the physical field, service or health and safety .

Artificial Intelligence and Optics: overdeveloped lenses

For years, it was the bearer to adapt to his glasses, including progressives. A unique design, despite the many disparities between each of these patients, regardless of age or need . It is from this starting point that many researchers wanted to take a different approach.

Thanks to the methods of artificial intelligence and big data (large data sets), research has established a strong link between visual age and the needs of patients.

Visual age can be defined by the physiological age of the eye . It is an age that will determine, according to the situation of each individual, particular distinctions .

The company Shamir Optical Industy Ltd , one of the largest manufacturers of ophthalmic lenses , took into account this visual age to precisely refine the needs of each patient and maximize the customization of glasses to a point never reached.

His new glass, Autograph Intelligence , takes into account all the multiplicity present in the population to present a solution adapted to each patient, without having to spend time beforehand with him in order to know more about his needs, his way of life, his work … [ =]

To do this, the brand has developed three new technologies:

Eye-Point Technology : Thanks to a high-performance software called the Head Eye Integrative Movement , you can determine accurately locate where the patient looks when using different areas of vision, targeting the glass surfaces along the vertical and horizontal meridians.

Visual AI Engine Technology : This engine of artificial intelligence deals with the individualization parameters collected by Shamir: measurements, indices, bases, powers … It is this technology that goes to allow an optimized calculation to conceive the design of the Autograph Intelligence glasses .

Continuous Design Technology : Finally, thanks to this technology, each patient benefits from a particular geometry, related to his needs and his visual age.

This is a significant step forward for the manufacture of ophthalmic lenses but also in the search for an ever more personalized service for patients, particularly in the field of presbyopia . =]

Safety first

In our Smart Glasses file , we mentioned Ellcie-Healthy's Prudensee glasses. These glasses, able to fight against falling asleep at the wheel , are part of the new generation glasses that will propagate optical devices to new horizons.

But the Prudensee glasses do not intend to stop in this way. To overcome other problems, the device must take into account developments in terms of artificial intelligence . Hence the idea of internalizing its needs in this area.

Thus, in order to address new sectors, such as construction or silver economy, the startup board on the detection and prevention of falls , or the detection of dangerous gases and the measurement of physical activity.

Properties that now seem more and more feasible thanks to AI, but also reflections with the sleep center or the sports research laboratory UFR Staps.

These technologies will make glasses safety devices in their own right. All this without deriving from an aesthetic point of view.

A way to prevent neurological crises

Still in the field of health, artificial intelligence has a lot to do to propose advances in the neurological field. It is known that certain afflictions, such as ophthalmic migraine or epileptic seizures , have the properties of being linked by an optical and neurological aspect .

New technologies coupled with artificial intelligence can predict epileptic seizures and perform early intervention


Microelectronics and artificial intelligence can help, thanks to advances in computational capabilities and data processing.

In the health field, these advances make it easier to diagnose and personalize the treatment of patients while improving the overall quality of care provided.

The design of implantable microsystems in cranial box could thus allow to record the brain activity by coupling it with a algorithm of detection of crises , allowing an alert and / or an early intervention.

More recently, researchers have found ways to predict neurological seizures using algorithms based on artificial intelligence techniques by probing many hours of brain electrical activity. before a crisis breaks out . All this without putting any electrode on the head.

An optical device , such as a pair of glasses or smart lenses, would then perhaps, eventually, to be able to anticipate a abnormal heart rhythm, jerky breathing, or degenerative motor activity.

The future will come with AI

Artificial intelligence is therefore clearly a solution for the future, not only to allow everyone to benefit from an optical device of a higher quality , especially thanks to its needs and the taking into account Key data account . These data, like the visual age , but also to ensure security at all times.

Some of these devices have already emerged, others promise, thanks to inevitable steps, to make outright steps in the physical, optical, cardiac or neurological fields .

In any case, the field of artificial intelligence is clearly one that, in the coming years, should always offer more reasons to believe in the progress of science. It is especially an approach that goes hand in hand with the world of optics, as it is constantly changing and tends to offer new perspectives as exciting as unknown.
