Data-Centric Computer Vision

Approaches, Applications, and Best Practices using the Appen Data Annotation Platform Human vision systems have the advantage of learning from a lifetime of experiences how to contextualize the things we see. Machine learning models, on the other hand, usually need a substantial number of real-world scenarios to learn from to be able to product reliable computer vision (CV) outputs. These …

Machine Vision vs. Computer Vision

Machine Vision vs. Computer Vision — What’s the Difference?

Artificial Intelligence is an umbrella term that covers several specific technologies. In this post, we will explore machine vision (MV) vs. computer vision (CV). They both involve the ingestion and interpretation of visual inputs, so it’s important to understand the strengths, limitations, and best use case scenarios of these overlapping technologies. The Beginning of Computer Vision Researchers began developing computer-enabled …
