Voxel, an AI startup using computer vision to transform safety and operations in the workplace, is working with industrial and manufacturing businesses to reduce that number by analyzing video feeds and determining potential safety threats on the factory floor. Its AI can alert employers to real-time accidents and spot behaviors that might increase risk.
