Computer Vision Grows Up

Tue, Dec 2 2014, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm PST        

Long regarded as an obscure academic subject, Computer Vision is quickly becoming a differentiator in consumer electronics. Recent successes in gesture-based games, smart security cameras and automotive safety systems are early indicators of an era in which visual intelligence will be embedded, everywhere, and ever-ready.

While these advances are happening at a remarkable pace, the field of Computer Vision needs to mature algorithmically, get standardized and get hardware-accelerated before it can become mainstream.

This talk will describe the challenges engineers face in deploying Computer Vision on embedded platforms, and how every Computer Vision solution seems to require its own computationally demanding algorithm. It will also explore the opportunities ahead as low-cost embedded devices such as wearables promise a world full of vision-enabled devices.
