About Computer Vision for Business: AR, AI and Data Applications

Computer vision makes the AI/AR future possible: it’s how self-driving cars see the road, plumbers gauge piping pressure and firefighters may soon rescue civilians. A deep learning building block, computer vision is now AI’s most technologically advanced field, with applications in robotics, healthcare, education, electronics, retail, manufacturing, logistics, infrastructure, aviation, entertainment, gaming and finance. As companies further automate business practices and provide enhanced customer experiences, they will increasingly deploy computer vision as an AI and AR input.

The power to see the world as a dataset has made computer vision a $11.32 billion global market, and in this dynamic online course at MIT SA+P, the leader in the impact of technology on society, entrepreneurs and corporate innovators will develop the tools needed to translate the deep science and engineering of computer vision into business success. Using computer vision to power AI and AR applications does not require obscure technical knowledge; it requires a strategic framework to architect ongoing waves of automation.
