Picking Out The Object
from the objectification-in-a-good-way dept
MIT’s Tech Review has an article about a few different systems that are coming out in the near future that can take live video feeds and automatically pick certain objects out. This can be useful in a variety of ways. It can be used to cut down bandwidth requirements – as it will only be necessary to transmit movements among objects instead of the “background image”. It can also be used for security purposes – alerting guards (for instance) if a person enters a restricted area, or leaves a briefcase behind.
