Combining Computer Vision with Human vision

August 1, 2006

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.

Here is the link

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).

You were’nt alone …

If you truly believe in the power of internet and believe that it can make things happen, then it's time for you to forget your embarressement and laugh with people who had to go through the same as you on the First of this month .. and to help this noble cause .. Wikipedia has an article on the popular websites/news-items that tried to play with human emotions on the first of April this year.

And if you do not believe in the power of the internet .. well .. Get a LIFE !! 🙂
