In 2010, I attended the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) CVPR (Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition) conference at the Hyatt in downtown San Francisco. I didn't expect the conference to be as large as it was, but it had more than 1,500 in attendance, to the best of my recollection. The conference reminded me of the size of the conferences held at the same hotel when the industry was arguing over different standards for Wi-Fi, with multi-billion dollar markets at stake.
