Over the last three decades, cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) has been heavily investigated in a wide range of biological applications, including wound healing, microorganism sterilization, and cancer treatment. Atmospheric pressure plasma jets (APPJs) are the most common plasma sources in plasma medicine. An APPJ's size determines its application range and approach in treatment. In this study, we demonstrated the real-time recognition of an APPJ's plasma plume output using computer vision (CV),
