Foreword by Susan Kahler
Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence that trains computers to interpret and understand the visual world. In recent years, computer vision has begun to rival and even surpass human visual abilities in many areas. SAS offers many different solutions to train computers to “see” by identifying and classifying objects, and several groundbreaking papers have been written to demonstrate these techniques. The papers included in this special collection demonstrate how the latest computer vision tools and techniques can be used to solve a variety of business problems.
