Computer Vision

I keep reading posts about what members think they know about image manipulation software, what happens when RAW is converted to JPEG, what happens when adjustments are made and saved in formats that don't retain original data. And so I offer some illumination after doing a search of the site and finding no mention of the topic - Computer Vision.

Computer Vision began as an Artificial Intelligence (AI) study and is a scientific and engineering discipline that gathers digital information from images and raw video streams, and seeks to analyze and manipulate that information in ways that might parallel what human vision might do, but more to the point, allow transforming the image data into usable information. Uses include image manipulations and restorations, motion detection, image recognition (thumbprints, faces, etc.) and many others. Computer Vision algorithms are the meat behind image software and in effect, these manipulate pixels.

Here are some good books that deal with programming Computer Vision:

Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications, Richard Szeliski, 2010

Computer Vision: Models, Learning, and Inference, Dr. Simon J.D. Prince, 2012

Computer Vision: A Modern Approach, Forsyth and Ponce, 2002

OpenCV Computer Vision Application Programming Cookbook, Laganierre, 2011

Digest this stuff and you'll get that general understanding of post processing software and image files that will make your discussions have more impact and relevance.
