Earlier this month, BDTI senior software engineer Eric Gregori and I delivered a technology trends presentation on embedded vision in mobile electronics devices at the Embedded Vision Alliance Member Summit, the video of which is currently being edited and I hope to publish soon here on the site. One of the key application areas that we discussed in depth is computational photography, which Wikipedia defines as:
Back in late September, I told you about Movi.Kanti.Revo, a client-side-rendered, HTML5- and web browser-based, and gesture interface-implemented application co-developed by Cirque du Soleil and Google.
