What is computer vision?
Computer Vision, often abbreviated as CV, is defined as a field of study that seeks to develop techniques to help computers “see” and understand the content of digital images such as photographs and videos.
Computer vision is closely linked with artificial intelligence, as the computer must interpret what it sees, and then perform appropriate analysis or act accordingly.
The goal of Computer Vision is to emulate human vision using digital images through three main processing components, executed one after the other:
3. Image analysis and understanding
Techniques developed for Computer Vision have many applications in the fields of robotics, human-computer interaction and visualization, to name a few:
5. Image restoration such as denoising
