“A Vision for the Future”, D. Moloney, O. Deniz. IEEE Consumer Electronics, April 2015

For the past 40 years, computer scientists and engineers have been building technology that has allowed machine vision to be used in high-value applications from factory automation to Mars rovers. However, until now, the availability of computational power has limited the application of these technologies to niches with a strong enough need to overcome the cost and power hurdles. This is changing rapidly as the computational means have now become available to bring computer vision to mass-market applications in mobile phones, tablets, wearables, drones, and robots, enabling brand-new user experiences within the cost, power, and volumetric constraints of mobile platforms.
