What is Computer Vision?

Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence that trains computers to interpret and understand the visual world. Using digital images from cameras and videos and deep learning models, machines can accurately identify and classify objects — and then react to what they “see.” (SAS)

An Artificial Intelligence technology that allows computers to understand and label images, is now used in convenience stores, driverless car testing, daily medical diagnostics, and in monitoring the health of crops and livestock.

You use computer vision in your day-to-day when:

  • Your smartphone performs facial or digital recognition;
  • Use an app to edit photos and add glasses, hats or change eye or hair color;
  • On the highway when cameras or radar identify your car or license plate and issue a ticket.
