Tom Simonite recently shared this in the MIT Technology Review: “Many of the devices around us may soon acquire powerful new abilities to understand images and video, thanks to hardware designed for the machine-learning technique called deep learning. Companies like Google have made breakthroughs in image and face recognition through deep learning, using giant data sets and powerful computers…hardware is coming that will bring the technique to phones, cars, and more.” This interesting topic came from DATAVERSITY in their article, “Your Gadgets May Be Able to “See” with Deep Learning Very Soon.”

There are some obvious benefits to this technological advancement. Visual intelligence can be added to many kinds of devices, from phones to cheap security cameras. That might lead to novel kinds of camera or photo apps. The technology could also enhance car, traffic, and surveillance cameras.

Change can be fun, despite our stubborn human inclination to resist it.
