Researchers at Columbia University are combining the processing power of the human brain with computer vision to develop a novel device that will allow people to search through images ten times faster than they can on their own.
The system harnesses the brain’s wel known ability to recognize an image much faster than the person can identify it.

PS :: As someone ,whose toughest question at job interviews was “why did you take Computer Vision ” and / or “why did you not follow it up with other related subjects ?” and / or “What IS computer Vision” , will tell you ( and as will I ) .. Computer Vision @ IIIT places you amongst the non-bald eggheads of the class , if not the entire computer savvy community.
With my limited knowledge / understanding / accumen of the matter, I found the link above very very interesting. Probably the non-bald eggheads would explain it a lot better (better .. ehh .. actually .. they are the ones who would explain it .. I am too lazy and ill-informed and bored to write anything else about it).
