For decades, computer vision technology was found mainly in university laboratories and a few niche applications. Today, virtually every tablet and smartphone is capable of sophisticated vision functions such as hand gesture recognition, face recognition, gaze tracking, and object recognition. These capabilities are being used to enable new types of applications, user interfaces, and use cases for mobile devices.
This presentation at the 2014 GTC (NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference) by Jeff Bier, Founder and President of the Embedded Vision Alliance, illuminate the key drivers behind the rapid proliferation of vision capabilities in mobile devices, and highlight some of the most innovative processor architectures, sensors, tools and APIs being used for mobile vision.
