Special Report: Computer Vision Opens New Doors for Enterprises
What is Computer Vision?
Computer vision refers to the use of AI algorithms to understand, analyze, and reconstruct visual scenes from image or video content. Computer vision operates through image classification, object detection and tracking, semantic segmentation, image reconstruction, and other capabilities that depend on artificial intelligence algorithms. Computer vision is commonly associated with self-driving cars and security systems, but its use cases are expanding rapidly to encompass fields as diverse as agriculture, medicine, and insurance.
Why is Computer Vision on the Rise?
"Computer vision is coming of age. Years ago, the deployment of a model often required a dedicated team of data scientists. The Prohibitive compute cost and technical expertise required to train and deploy an AI model from scratch is a daunting obstacle to enterprises that might otherwise seek to take advantage of computer vision applications. Now, providers are offering platforms that address this challenge by guiding users through the development process and supplying ready-made solutions for each step of the way." - Adam Pease, Associate Analyst and Editor
