#chAI : Applying AI to Computer Vision

Apr 28, 2018 · Bengaluru, India

• What we'll do
Computer Vision has already made inroads into multiple industries, from common applications like photo tagging and image search to more advanced applications like self-driving cars, medical imaging and surveillance. Self-driving cars use computer vision to see the world around them and assist with collision detection and avoidance. AI can augment computer vision by bringing greater accuracy and automation. For example in surveillance, it can help identify suspects or suspicious activities and send out alerts without human intervention. In this month’s #chAI session, we will discuss AI and computer vision, and delve into its application in surveillance and image recognition.
