First Lecture, Computer Vision

I’m preparing my first lecture of the semester (to a class of 70 ?!), and planning to make the claim that computer vision algorithms really touch our lives much more than in the past.  So what are those algorithms?

  1. OCR/handwritten character recognition.
  2. Face detection in digital SLR cameras
  3. Face tracking in webcams
  4. smart phone apps like Google Goggles
  5. panoramic photo stitching
  6. iPhoto face annotation

What other recent algorithms are fully automatic and widely in use in consumer electronics?
