Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence that enables computers to interpret and analyze visual data from the world around us. It has become increasingly important, powering a range of applications from facial recognition to autonomous vehicles. Here we explore how computer vision works, its applications, challenges, and what the future holds.Today, computer vision is a rapidly growing field with applications in autonomous vehicles, medical imaging, and robotics - amongst many other areas. With advancements in artificial intelligence, computer vision is expected to continue to grow and transform the way we interact with visual data.

Computer Vision Applications & Use cases in 2023

Computer vision has a wide range of applications. This can be object recognition and tracking, such as in security systems, retail, and manufacturing to track and identify objects. Or it could be facial recognition, such as used in security systems, social media, and in autonomous vehicles. It is also used in gesture recognition, medical imaging, and robotics among other things.

1. Autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars rely on a range of sensors and cameras to detect and analyze their surroundings. Computer vision algorithms enable these vehicles to recognize objects, interpret road signs, and anticipate potential hazards. Companies such as Tesla, Waymo, and Uber are investing heavily in computer vision to develop autonomous vehicles that are safer, more efficient, and more convenient.

2. Retail and E-Commerce

Computer vision is transforming the retail industry by enabling retailers to analyze and interpret visual data. Algorithms can be used to analyze customer behavior, track inventory, and optimize store layouts. In e-commerce, computer vision can be used to provide customers with a more personalized shopping experience by analyzing their browsing and purchasing history.Volumental, a footwear platform, provides shoe recommendations by leveraging a combination of 3D foot scans, retail purchase data, and AI. The team partnered with Sama to label the datasets that fuel the computer vision technology for a mobile foot scanning app. These recommendations provide better shopping experiences for users and remove friction from the buying process, resulting in fewer online returns.

3. Consumer Tech and & Media

Smartphones and other consumer devices are equipped with powerful cameras and computer vision algorithms that enable users to take better photos, identify objects, and even create augmented reality experiences. In the media industry, computer vision is being used to analyze video content and automate tasks such as captioning and editing.

4. Medical Imaging

Computer vision algorithms can be used to analyze medical images such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. These algorithms can help doctors diagnose and treat diseases more accurately and efficiently. The algorithms can be used to detect cancerous tumors, identify abnormalities in the brain, and monitor the progression of diseases such as Alzheimer's.The Swift Skin and Wound mobile app helps patients and clinicians monitor wound health. Swift partnered with Sama to cost-effectively scale annotations for their CV model, without compromising the clinician-level accuracy they needed.Read the full case study here.

5. Manufacturing and Robotics

Computer vision algorithms can be used to optimize production processes, detect defects in products, and automate tasks such as quality control. In robotics, algorithms enable robots to navigate their environment, recognize objects, and perform tasks that would be difficult or impossible for humans.The future of computer vision is exciting, with advancements in deep learning and artificial intelligence expected to further improve the accuracy and speed of computer vision algorithms. It is also expected to become more integrated with other technologies, such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and the internet of things.
