Desire for Computers to See
Typically, this involves developing methods that attempt to reproduce the capability of human vision. Understanding the content of digital images may involve extracting a description from the image, which may be an object, a text description, a three-dimensional model, and so on. Computer vision is the automated extraction of information from images. Information can mean anything from 3D models, camera position, object detection and recognition to grouping and searching image content.
Image processing is the process of creating a new image from an existing image, typically simplifying or enhancing the content in some way. It is a type of digital signal processing and is not concerned with understanding the content of an image. A given computer vision system may require image processing to be applied to raw input, e. The goal of computer vision is to extract useful information from images. Initially, it was believed to be a trivially simple problem that could be solved by a student connecting a camera to a computer.
Forty years later the task is still unsolved and seems formidable. Studying biological vision requires an understanding of the perception organs like the eyes, as well as the interpretation of the perception within the brain.
Much progress has been made, both in charting the process and in terms of discovering the tricks and shortcuts used by the system, although like any study that involves the brain, there is a long way to go. Perceptual psychologists have spent decades trying to understand how the visual system works and, even though they can devise optical illusions to tease apart some of its principles, a complete solution to this puzzle remains elusive.
Another reason why it is such a challenging problem is because of the complexity inherent in the visual world. A given object may be seen from any orientation, in any lighting conditions, with any type of occlusion from other objects, and so on. Computers work well for tightly constrained problems, not open unbounded problems like visual perception.
Nevertheless, there has been progress in the field, especially in recent years with commodity systems for optical character recognition and face detection in cameras and smartphones.

Computer vision is at an extraordinary point in its development. The subject itself has been around since the s, but only recently has it been possible to build useful computer systems using ideas from computer vision. It is a broad area of study with many specialized tasks and techniques, as well as specializations to target application domains.
Computer vision has a wide variety of applications, both old e. It may be helpful to zoom in on some of the more simpler computer vision tasks that you are likely to encounter or be interested in solving given the vast number of publicly available digital photographs and videos available. Many popular computer vision applications involve trying to recognize things in photographs; for example:.
Other common examples are related to information retrieval; for example: finding images like an image or images that contain an object. Do you have any questions?

Good work. Jason Brownlee March 22, at am. Jason Brownlee March 23, at am. The features can be fed into a neural net or another algorithm, such as an SVM. Often, techniques developed for image classification with localization are used and demonstrated for object detection. VOC , is a common dataset for object detection. Object segmentation, or semantic segmentation, is the task of object detection where a line is drawn around each object detected in the image.
Image segmentation is a more general problem of spitting an image into segments. Unlike object detection that involves using a bounding box to identify objects, object segmentation identifies the specific pixels in the image that belong to the object.

It is like a fine-grained localization. The KITTI Vision Benchmark Suite is another object segmentation dataset that is popular, providing images of streets intended for training models for autonomous vehicles. Style transfer or neural style transfer is the task of learning style from one or more images and applying that style to a new image.
This task can be thought of as a type of photo filter or transform that may not have an objective evaluation. Examples include applying the style of specific famous artworks e. Datasets often involve using famous artworks that are in the public domain and photographs from standard computer vision datasets. Image colorization or neural colorization involves converting a grayscale image to a full color image.

Datasets often involve using existing photo datasets and creating grayscale versions of photos that models must learn to colorize. Image reconstruction and image inpainting is the task of filling in missing or corrupt parts of an image. Examples include reconstructing old, damaged black and white photographs and movies e.
Datasets often involve using existing photo datasets and creating corrupted versions of photos that models must learn to repair. Example of Photo Inpainting. Image super-resolution is the task of generating a new version of an image with a higher resolution and detail than the original image. Often models developed for image super-resolution can be used for image restoration and inpainting as they solve related problems. Datasets often involve using existing photo datasets and creating down-scaled versions of photos for which models must learn to create super-resolution versions. Image synthesis is the task of generating targeted modifications of existing images or entirely new images.
It may include small modifications of image and video e. Example of Styling Zebras and Horses. Example of Generated Bathrooms.

Thanks for this nice post! Are you planning on releasing a book on CV? Will it also include the foundations of CV with openCV?
reVISION Enables Responsive and Reconfigurable Vision Systems
I hope to release a book on the topic soon. Great stuff as always! Hello Jason, thanks for the nice post. Hi Jason How are doing may god bless you. I am an avid follower of your blog and also purchased some of your e-books. Hi, Jason. Great post! My book is intended for practitioners, nevertheless, academics may also find it useful in terms of defining base models for comparison and on learning how to use the Keras library effectively for computer vision applications. There are lot of things to learn and apply in Computer vision. Great article.
