“Quick-Thinking AI Camera Mimics the Human Brain”, Dhananjay Khadilkar, Scientific American, (22/06/17)


Researchers in Europe are developing a camera that will literally have a mind of its own, with brainlike algorithms that process images and light sensors that mimic the human retina. Its makers hope it will prove that artificial intelligence—which today requires large, sophisticated computers—can soon be packed into small consumer electronics. But as much as an AI camera would make a nifty smartphone feature, the technology’s biggest impact may actually be speeding up the way self-driving cars and autonomous flying drones sense and react to their surroundings.
