Computer vision is a form of information technology development that is now widely used in various activities. So, what is computer vision? For those of you who have just heard of it, of course, you are still unfamiliar with the meaning of computer vision. Therefore, here we will explain what computer vision algorithms are and what their benefits are. In addition to discussing the definition of computer vision and its functions, here we will also discuss examples of computer vision.
Computer vision is a science that allows a computer to see objects or objects around it. With the ability to see the object, the computer can analyze the object or image in front of it so that the information can produce a certain command. Computer vision is an automated process that integrates a large number of processes for visual perception, such as image acquisition, image processing, recognition, and decision making. Computer vision tries to imitate how the human visual system works (human vision) which is very complex.
Objects are seen by humans with the sense of sight/eyes. Then the image of the object is continued to the brain to be interpreted so that humans can understand what objects are seen in their vision. The results of this interpretation can be used for decision-making (eg avoiding if you see a car in front). We can see its implementation in the field of computer vision in Scan QR. When the QR Scan code is detected by a certain computer (smartphone), the scanned code will send a code that will execute a certain command. For example, commands to unlock, log in using a specific profile, make payments, and so on.
Processes in computer vision are to acquire/receive digital images. Image processing operations/ to modify image data. Perform analysis, interpret images and use the processing results for certain purposes, such as monitoring the manufacturing process, controlling equipment, guiding robots, and others.
