Computer Vision - The Now & The Future 16:00 - 16:40
Computer vision is a relatively young research area with the quest of giving computers the 'sense of vision'. Several current systems surpass human-level performance on specific tasks, such as image classification. In this session researchers from the Rakuten Institute of Technology will present a selection of their current projects, discussing business-related applications in e-commerce, video analysis, and medical imaging. In a follow-up panel discussion we will present several possible outlooks, highlighting both risks and opportunities of this rapidly evolving field.
