(Computer) vision without sight

Roberto Manduchi, James Coughlan
2012 Communications of the ACM  
Finally, we conclude by highlighting a few novel and intriguing areas of application of computer vision to assistive technology.  ...  To this end, it is worthwhile to assess the situation critically by understanding the actual needs of the VI population and which of these needs might be addressed by computer vision.  ...  The goal of the assistive technology described so far is to create the equivalent of a "sighted companion," who can assist a VI user and answer questions such as "Where am I?", "What's near me?"  ...

Artificial intelligence and machine learning landscape [chapter]

2020 Artificial Intelligence in Management  
Before committing to a definition of intelligence, let us first take a somewhat closer look at the problems one may reasonably expect intelligent machines to solve.  ...  They can operate 'autonomously', take advantage of remote intelligent services (e.g. in the Cloud Computing model) or engage with other objects to establish networks.  ...  Derenick (2020) defines drone autonomy as the ability to answer three questions: Where am I?, Where am I going? and How do I get there?  ...
