The ubiquity of computer vision

Since I’m taking a course in image analysis and computer vision, I’m becoming more aware of uses of these technologies in daily life. They’re all over. For example, I watched an episode of Modern Marvels (kickin’ show, BTW) about agricultural harvesting, and there were at least four processes in modern agriculture mentioned that make use of image analysis/computer vision (analyzing satellite maps of vegetation density, sorting fruits by ripeness, identifying fruits for robotic picking, and helping drive unmanned tractors).

So I suppose this course will have some nice applications for me; I’m bound to run into projects with an image processing component if I’m watching for them.
