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?
- OCR/handwritten character recognition.
- Face detection in digital SLR cameras
- Face tracking in webcams
- smart phone apps like Google Goggles
- panoramic photo stitching
- iPhoto face annotation
What other recent algorithms are fully automatic and widely in use in consumer electronics?
