What is Computer Vision?
Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence (AI) that enables computers and systems to derive meaningful information from digital images and videos. This then allows the AI to make recommendations based on the information it has collected. Another way of thinking about it is that computer vision allows a system to ‘see’ and make decisions from what it’s observed.
What makes computer vision unique is its ability to process more information, much more quickly, than a human would be able to. By utilizing deep learning, a type of machine learning, a system can ingest a large amount of data and teach itself how to differentiate each image from one another.
This can aid with everything from detecting defective products to verifying that uploaded images or video have not been manipulated. Computer vision can securely streamline tasks that would otherwise take a monumental amount of human effort, allowing businesses to focus on other key areas of their operation.
