Improving traffic safety, better health services and environmental benefits – Big Data experts see a wide range of possibilities for advanced image analysis and recognition technology.
“Advanced image recognition by computers is the result of a great deal of very demanding work. You have to mimic the way the human brain distinguishes significant from unimportant information,” says Eirik Thorsnes at Uni Research in Bergen, Norway.
Thorsnes heads a group in the company’s Centre for Big Data Analysis focus area, which develops strategies for use of big data for research and commercial purposes. The Centre also works on developing advanced computing power that works in the same complex way as the human brain.
In many areas, the human brain‘s fantastic capacity and working methods will continue to outperform computers, but there are
