Questions tagged [object-recognition]

For questions related to object recognition, which is the problem of determining the type/class/category of an object in the image, so object recognition could also be called object classification. This is different from object detection, which is either used to refer to object localization (i.e. find the coordinates of the object in the image) + object classification, or just object localization.
