Think of video as doing stuff with the entire image. Make the reds more vibrant, compress to fit on a DVD, size to fit on a phone screen, etc. Vision is extracting information. Is there a cat in the backyard? Is Uncle Jim in the movie? Is the stool in front of or behind the box?

i am still confused with the two. I do understand video and vision separately but am struggling to see the analogies or differences as a whole.

I'm using an embedded vision app that runs on my smartphone: http://www.ionroad.com/ There are times it gets confused, but, for the most part, it's a useful "second set of eyes."

I guess the key to computer vision is not just "seeing" things but "interpreting" objects and their actions. That, to me, is mind-boggling, to say the least.

I "visualize" a lot of exciting possibilities with vision systems replacing the "video"systems. A simple example is of the CCTV systems deployed for home, office or shop security. These systems currently only record the activity and someone can analyze the recording in case of a burglary attempt . With vision systems it may be possible to detect such suspicious activities in real time and catch the thieves by the neck before they are able to vanish from the scene.

I agree: this is a revolutionary shift. You can see cool examples of currently shipping embedded-vision-enabled products here: http://www.embedded-vision.com/eye-catching-embedded-vision-clips And, if you want to try running (or writing) some vision applications on your own desktop, check out http://www.embedded-vision.com/introduction-computer-vision-using-opencv

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
