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.
