Computer vision combines machine learning, data processing, and AI to develop innovative solutions that find use cases on a daily basis.
A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words – and computer vision could perhaps make it worth much more.
A field of computer science that works to help computers see, identify, and process images much like human vision does, computer vision offers endless and exciting possibilities. Closely linked with Artificial Intelligence, computer vision also provides the appropriate output that exceeds the limitations of the human eye.
Computer vision combines elements of machine learning, data processing, and analytics. It is fundamentally about processing images and coming up with use-case models. For example, in a typical driving scenario, the sudden appearance of an object in front of the vehicle could have multiple results. But in a computer vision-enabled scenario, these possibilities are minimized as the object is noticed much before the human eye can.
In India, a significant number of computer vision startups are engaged in processing images whose use-cases are being deployed in eCommerce, medicine, security, transportation, industrial automation, security, etc.
