Careers in Image Recognition and Computer Vision
What is the one thing that is common amongst platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat and many others that are out there?
They all use some form of Image Recognition for their features: from tagging friends in cover pictures to recommending videos and products, to applying filters on our images and videos, and to deciding which frame to choose as the title image!
Like the phrase “what-you-see-is-what-you-get”, our eyes working with human brains make vision easy. It is Image Recognition and Computer Vision that allows us to train our computers to differentiate between images. Image recognition, in particular, refers to technologies that enable computers and other machines to identify places, logos, people, objects, buildings and other variables in images. This market is fast growing and is estimated to grow from USD 15.95 Billion (2016) to USD 38.92 Billion by 2021, as more and more businesses integrate this into their products and services.
Image Recognition comprises of several powerful applications that create value from a business perspective. Functions like facial recognition, security, surveillance, geolocation, object recognition, gesture recognition, codes are integral to this. Image Recognition is also applied in diverse areas like industrial automation, medical analysis, autonomous and semi-autonomous driving, driving assistance…
