I spy with my little eye….

The human eye and brain are marvelous inventions, able to see and recognize shapes, colors, light and dark.

But beyond that, to compare two items to tell if they match; to say, “I’ve seen that before!”; and to pick similar items out of a collection of items.

“Yeah, so what?” you say.

Well, computer recognition has not been able to perform such regular, if mundane, tasks consistently. Especially when photos are involved.

At least until recently. Check out this article on computer recognition of objects in photos. And don’t overlook the related articles listed in the sidebar.
