Machine Learning and the Camera Sensor

One of the larger themes I’ve been integrating in industry conversations with tech leaders and executives is how giving computers the ability to see and hear us will define a new era of computing. All the advancements in machine learning the past few years have set a new foundation to give computers the ability to learn on their own. A computers ability to learn depends entirely on the information available to it. This data has largely been textual but we are on the cusp of the computing being able to utilize all its sensors to learn as well. This includes the microphone, camera sensor, GPS, accelerometer, and any other host of optional sensors available to integrate into our computers. I do believe, however, the camera sensor will be the one which will lead to the most obvious customer value of machine learning and AI.
