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.

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.
