Computer Vision is one of the hottest field in the study of Artificial Intelligence. Humans use their eyes to see the objects and interpret it through the brain . Similarly Artificial system use the computer vision to detect and to recognise. The objective of computer vision is to mimic the eyes of human and help interpret the environment through deep learning algorithms. Human vision has a limitation in terms of performing multiple tasks at the same time and this gap is being filled with the computer vision. The computer vision algorithm performs multiple tasks at the same time and with a greater efficiency level. The development in the field of computer vision is to build the autonomous systems which can recognise the object. Take into an example of a drone delivery system with computer vision algorithm which can deliver a pizza , understanding the environment where it has to deliver and keeping a record of a the images where it has landed.
Today , the computer vision is used in the field of autonomous vehicles, facial recognition, object detection , in space orbiters to detect and select the place for landing. They are being used by social media to derive the information about the environment. Objective of the deep research in the field of computer vision is to perform
The human vision has its own set of shortcomings are sometimes not able to recognise the direction of movement , its size as well as the colour of the object.
The computer vision has improved considerably in image recognition in the last couple of years and is being used by social media companies to recognise the person who are interacting on the social circle and build a profile around them. They have also achieved a considerable amount of accuracy in doing so.
Application of Computer vision
Computer vision is widely being used in facial recognition and some of the software companies have also developed products around face recognition attendance in schools , universities and companies
Autonomous cars or self driving cars use computer vision to recognise and detect the objects, humans and traffic signals and use this information to develop the trajectory and the path it needs to follow avoid any collision with the ongoing traffic or objects, specially humans.
Computer vision is an important aspect of artificial Intelligence. By creating an agent with Machine Learning algorithm, it requires visual data to process and learn from the environment and this aspect is fulfilled with the advances being made in the field of computer vision. Researchers want to create the capability of perception and learning in machines and computer vision is an important aspect , which mimics human vision in understanding the world around.
Fields of Computer Vision
Industrial vision system In bottling companies, computer vision is used to inspect bottles on a production line
Multimedia and Entertainment A lot of applications, we use for image transformation , features like cropping, scaling , visual effects
Robotics Robotics mimic human to perform a given task and involves identifying the objects to operate and computer vision is a critical component to its advancement.
Augmented Reality provides the experience of real and virtual world. Applications use augmented reality in the field of medical science ,architecture , gaming etc.
Healthcare-The use of computer vision in healthcare is vast. From helping the doctors in the surgeries to helping the medical practitioners in diagnostics and even mental healthcare.
