Computer Vision Model

Encord Computer Vision Glossary

Computer vision is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on allowing computers to interpret and understand the visual world. This involves the use of algorithms and machine learning techniques to analyze and interpret visual data from cameras and other sources.

A mathematical model of computer vision depicts the fundamental principles and processes involved in visual perception. It is intended to simulate how the human visual system functions, enabling computers to identify and categorize items, individuals, and scenes in pictures and movies.

Computer vision models come in a wide variety of forms, such as feature-based models, deep learning networks, and convolutional neural networks (CNNs). These models are able to learn and recognise patterns and characteristics in the visual environment because they can be trained on huge volumes of labeled and picture data.

How do you build a computer vision model?

One common approach to building a computer vision model is to use a CNN, which is a type of deep learning network that is particularly well-suited for image classification tasks. CNNs are composed of multiple layers of interconnected neurons, which process and analyze the visual data as it passes through the network. The layers of the CNN are trained to recognize specific features and patterns in the data, allowing the model to classify images based on their content.

Utilizing a feature-based model is an alternative strategy that depends on locating and extracting particular aspects or qualities of a picture, such as edges, lines, or shapes The image is then classified or individual items within it are identified using these attributes.

Applications for computer vision models include object tracking and recognition, picture and video analysis, autonomous navigation, and many more. They are also utilized to automate operations and boost productivity in sectors including retail, manufacturing, and healthcare.
