We review camera architecture in the age of artificial intelligence. Modern cameras use physical components and software to capture, compress and display image data. Over the past 5 years, deep learning solutions have become superior to traditional algorithms for each of these functions. Deep learning enables 10-100x reduction in electrical sensor power per pixel, 10x improvement in depth of field and dynamic range and 10-100x improvement in image pixel count. Deep learning enables multiframe
