The goal of computer vision is to understand the story unfolding in a picture. As humans, this is quite simple. But for computers, the task is extremely difficult. So why bother about computer vision? Well, images are everywhere! Whether it be personal photo albums on your smartphone, public photos on Facebook, or videos on YouTube, we now have more images than ever – and we need methods to analyze, categorize, and quantify the contents of these images. For example, have you recently tagged a photo of yourself or a friend on Facebook lately? How does Facebook seem to “know” where the faces are in an image? Facebook has implemented facial recognition algorithms into their website, meaning that they cannot only find faces in an image, they can also identify whose face it is as well! Facial recognition is an application of computer vision in the real world.
We have first-hand experience in developing Computer Vision Applications.
