Computer Vision

Computer vision includes methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images in order to produce decisions. It has also been described as the enterprise of automating and integrating a wide range of processes and representations for vision perception. Computer vision typically requires a combination of low level image processing to enhance the image quality (e.g. remove noise, increase contrast) and higher level pattern recognition and image  understanding to recognise features present in the image.
