Questions tagged [computer-vision]

For questions related to computer vision, which is an interdisciplinary scientific field (which can e.g. use image processing techniques) that deals with how computers can be made to gain high-level understanding from digital images or videos. For example, image recognition (that is, the identification of the type of objects in an image) is a computer vision problem.
