More Machine Vision

Machine vision has been around for a long time. For example systems in manufacturing lines that easily detect varying quality. Once you take such system in a human environment like a or aim to understand a video the solution of these problems becomes more difficult. There have been considerable advances, but the general problem is still hard. Here is a new example from a company called Vitamin D Video, with a brain-based solution. ' ... In its current form, Vitamin D Video is targeted for video analytics and monitoring, but the underlying technology, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory, or HTM, is modeled on the human neocortex and is the stuff of AI-yet-to-come ... '.

This system is trained rather than programmed. We worked with several such systems and the results could be too narrowly focused. Like the manufacturing line example.
