The ability of a computer to analyze and derive meaning from visual stimuli, such as pictures and video, as well as other electromagnetic frequencies such as X-rays or microwaves. Machine vision enables applications to “unlock” through facial recognition based on analysis of visual cues, or self-driving cars to navigate the roads and identify obstacles. Combined with speech recognition, machine vision will be instrumental in enabling the machines of the future to understand and navigate the human world.
