Never stray.

Nummist Media is home to the books, inventions, and consulting services of Joseph Howse. We are an independent, family-owned company, founded in 2014, and from our base in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, we set out to do bold work that matters to our readers, learners, business clients, and non-profit allies worldwide.

Our work includes:

  • Technical books about computer vision, published by Packt Publishing
  • Beautiful books, published under our own Nummist Media imprint:
  • Technical training, workshops, and talks about computer vision. Hosts for our workshops and talks have included PyImageConf and GBM, an IBM Alliance Company.
  • Design and development of inventions that rely on computer vision. For example, we have helped clients realize inventions in medical imaging, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR).
  • Business mentorship, especially relating to emerging technologies and/or growth planning. For example, working with the pro bono consulting group Bpeace, we have mentored many growing companies in El Salvador and Guatemala, including the region’s earliest pioneers of computer vision technologies. Bpeace has granted us awards for this work in 2014 (Travelling Mentor award), 2018–2019 (Platinum Skillanthropist awards), and 2021–2022 (Skillanthropist awards).
  • Leadership or mentorship of software engineering teams in the role of Technical Lead, Project Manager, and/or Subject Matter Expert
  • Code contributions to open-source projects, including the Linux kernel and OpenCV
