Computer Vision and Computer Graphics

Computer vision

Computer vision is a scientific field which deals with how computers can be made as high level devices which understand digital images and videos. In terms of engineering, it is an automate task that the human visual system can do. Computer vision has methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing and understanding the digital image. The most important task is to extract high dimensional data from the real world which can produce numerical or symbolic information.

As a scientific discipline, computer vision is related to the theory of artificial system which can extract information from images. The image data is used in the form of video sequences which can be seen by a human.

Applications of Computer vision is as follows:

  1. Robotics
  2. Medicine
  3. Security
  4. Transportation
  5. Industrial Automation

Computer Graphics

In computer graphics, pictures and films are created using computers. Usually, it refers to computer generated image data which is created to help specialized graphical hardware and software. It is a very vast developed area of computer science. In 1960, Verne Hudson and William Fetter of Boeing invented computer graphics. Computer graphics also includes user interface design, sprite graphics, vector graphics, 3D modelling, shaders, and computer vision. Computer graphics is also responsible to display image data in a meaningful manner. Computer graphics is also used for processing data which is received from the physical world.

Applications of Computer graphics is as follows:

  • Computer Aided Design (CAD)
  • Presentation Graphics
  • 3d Animation
  • Education and training
  • Graphical User Interfaces
