Image recognition is the method of identifying and recognizing objects or qualities in a photo or video. This tool is now developing in remarkable ways that directly affect people in their daily lives. The process of image recognition can now describe, in words, the content of the photo or video by using algorithms written by a collaboration between Google and Stanford University. This procedure works by incorporating two neural networks: image recognition and natural language processing. This means that people will be able to receive more accurate results when searching the internet for particular images and videos. While this development is not perfected, it is an exciting step in advancing image recognition technology.

Slyce, a leading image recognition provider, is using this technology is ways that will simplify and connect the world like never before. Through shopping, advertising, relevancy engines, and social media tags, this company provides intuitive technology that allows customers find exactly what they are looking for. Within the e-commerce system, they are able to locate what someone is looking for just by taking a picture. For example, a woman sees a billboard advertising a new movie, and really likes the shoes that one of the actors is wearing. By taking a photo of the shoes with Slyce, she is able to view that exact pair and/or similar shoes and purchase them. This is a powerful tool that will be used for buying, selling, and advertising internationally. Consumers should expect to see many companies using this in mobile applications in the near future.

What else does the future hold for this branch of technology? As research continues, it’s possible that it can aid the blind and artificial intelligence navigate their environments. In the future, the software managing the cameras will go beyond just physical recognition of humans, but also distinguish certain types of behavior, which could potentially alert the authorities automatically. The neural networks used in this kind of technology are inspired by the ways the human brain works, and can additionally be trained to discover patterns in information.

 

Sergio Cortes told me that virtual reality was one of the most commonly used buzzwords of the 90s. People had big dreams for virtual reality, but the technology of the time simply wasn’t up to it. But the big dreams of the 90s are starting to come into a more concrete reality. As they do, people are coming up with ideas which nobody would have thought possible. In particular, few people suspected that virtual reality might first appear in medical classrooms.

Medical Realities¬†hopes to bring virtual reality tools to medical schools¬†all over the world. They’re focusing on a device known as the Oculus Rift. The Oculus Rift was initially envisioned as peripheral for video game players. The project began with a small kickstarter campaign. Before anyone know it, the project had millions of dollars worth of donations. This has allowed the developers to take it into more complex directions than they initially intended. The focus on higher resolution and better display technology has also ensured that it can be of use to the medial industry.

For obvious reasons, it’s difficult and costly for medical students to hone their skills within an actual surgical environment. Even use of medical cadavers incurs a huge cost for schools. More importantly, the high cost also ensures that practice time for any given student will be limited.
