computer vision image analysis
What is an image in computer vision? What is recognized by computer vision?

Computer vision, or the ability of artificially intelligent systems to “see” like humans, has been a subject of increasing interest and rigorous research now. As a way of emulating the human visual system, the research in the field of computer vision purports to develop machines that can automate tasks that require visual cognition. However, the process of deciphering images, due to the significantly greater amount of multi-dimensional data that needs analysis, is much more complex than understanding other forms of binary information. This makes developing AI systems that can recognize visual data more complicated.

In computer vision we wish to receive quantitative and qualitative information from visual data. Much like the process of visual reasoning of human vision, we can distinguish between objects, classify them, sort them according to their size, and so forth. Computer vision, like image processing, takes images as input.
