Impact of deep learning on computer vision


A rather high profile area generating headlines this year has been connected vehicles. The technological challenges that must be addressed before autonomous cars can be unleashed onto the streets are quite significant. Vision is one critical factor; your car needs to be able to identify all road hazards as well as navigating from A to B. So, how can a car achieve that in an often over-crowded highway space? Computer vision can be described as graphics in reverse. Rather than us viewing the computer's world, the computer turns around to look at ours.
