When Computers Can See

on August 22, 2017

We are watching the early phases of one of the most significant advancements in computing. We are on the cusp of teaching computers to hear us and to see us and the world around us. Computer vision has been a buzz word that companies like Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and AMD have been using because the idea behind computer vision has immense impact on the processors and GPUs of today. One of the most important long-term observations I’ve come to of late, is that we simply do not have enough processing power to handle our ideas of computer vision. Understanding this means knowing we are nowhere close to achieving this vision since it could be 10 years before we have the kind of processing power to truly give a computer eyes and ears and real-time intelligence to go along with them. This is the opening innings of a long game but this game could be the pinnacle of them all.
