Will cameras l revolutionise computer vision as we know it?
Recent technological advancements and cost reductions for some of the specialised cameras and sensors that can see both the visible and non-visible parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, such as Infra Red (IR), and X-Rays, are opening the floodgates to a host of new camera technologies. And as the technology develops it will change how humans, and machines, see the world and that’s big. Think of drones that can use broad spectrum cameras to find people after an Earthquake, or self-driving cars that can see through blizzards and dense fog, inspectors or factory robots that can see and track the smallest cracks in products, airport cameras that can see through clothing and luggage, next generation home security systems, or satellites and autonomous hunter-killer drones and robots, like the ones the US Marines are thinking of deploying, that can see “everything.”
And yes, you’re right, we should all be excited about the prospect of HK robots that see everything, very, very excited.
