The data collected by most organizations no longer comprises merely rows and columns of textual values. A large part of it is based on visual data, that is, images and videos. The analysis of these visual data is critical for not only commercial purposes but also social causes such as public safety and health.
One of the scientific techniques dealing with image and video analysis is object tracking, which falls under the umbrella of computer vision.
Computer vision is a subset of computer science that, simply put, allows computers to see, comprehend, and analyze visual data. With computer vision, a machine can perform tasks such as image classification, facial recognition, object detection, and, of course, object tracking.
Let’s talk about what computer vision object tracking is, how it works, and why your business should consider a custom-built object tracking solution.
