  Computer vision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer vision is the study and application of methods which allow computers to "understand" image content or content of multidimensional data in general.
Computer vision, on the other hand, studies and describes technical system which are implemented in software or hardware, in computers or in digital signal processors.
Computer vision is by some seen as a subfield of artificial intelligence where image data is being fed into a system as an alternative to text based input for controlling the behaviour of a system.

 Category:Computer vision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer vision is an interdisciplinary field related to, e.g., artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, signal processing and geometry.
The purpose of computer vision is to program a computer to "understand" a scene or features in an image.
Computer vision shares many topics and methods with image processing and machine vision.

 Golan Levin - Computer Vision for Artists and Designers
To understand how novel forms of interactive media can take advantage of computer vision techniques, it is helpful to begin with an understanding of the kinds of problems that vision algorithms have been developed to address, and their basic mechanisms of operation.
Many low-level computer vision algorithms are geared to the task of distinguishing which pixels, if any, belong to people or other objects of interest in the scene.
Some computer vision toolkits take the form of stand-alone applications, and are designed to communicate the results of their analyses to other environments (such as Processing, Director or Max) through protocols like MIDI, serial RS-232, UDP or TCP/IP networks.

 Computer Vision (comp256)

 Computer Vision Syndrome and Computer Glasses
Computer monitors are often placed too close to the user because of space constraints or lack of understanding on how the eyes function while working on a computer.
The problem is that they are single vision lenses (they correct the vision at only one distance), the correction is exactly the same in each eye (few people have the exact same correction in each eye), and there is no option available for prism, a tint, a UV coating, and an anti-reflective coating.
Visual ability, personal preferences of the computer user, the type of work, the distance between the computer user's eyes and the monitor, and lighting in the workplace are all factors that should be taken into consideration when selecting and prescribing computer glasses.

 Vision
And there is so much more to vision than meets the eye, such as when fog or snow obscures a portion of the road ahead of you (or imagine that you are scuba diving in murky waters...).
"Computer vision is the branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on providing computers with the functions typical of human vision.
A cognitive vision system may therefore be said to combine the acquisition and processing of visual data relating to objects, processes or events, and the mobilisation of specific knowledge for reasoning, establishing conclusions and making decisions.

If your vision is good at distance with or without glasses or contacts, you must change how your eyes focus from that far distance to the computer monitors closer distance.
When the visual demand of using the computer exceed the ability of the user to meet that demand, symptoms of CVS are noted.

This is because the model learns the continuity in the texture and uses this to explain the occluded regions in the patches.
An interesting and potentially useful vision/graphics task is to render an input image in an enhanced form or also in a unusual style; for example with increased sharpness or with some artistic qualities.
We also show that current techniques for image restoration or reconstruction proposed in the vision literature (e.g., image super-resolution or de-noising) and image-based non-photorealistic rendering could be seen a special cases of our model.
