2009 BIRS Workshop on Computer Vision and the Internet

 

The Internet provides an image database of extraordinary scale and diversity. What implications does this have for computer vision research? And, in turn, what impact will computer vision have on the Internet? This workshop brings together leading researchers to take stock of the state of the art, identify key challenges, and propose new directions.
