What? DARPA Does Open-Source?: DARPA's open-source move underscores the reality that computer vision i... #supply

How a machine recognizes a man from a tree seems like a pretty mundane, theoretical question.

Similarly, making sure a car identifies a pedestrian on the street -- under any and all weather conditions -- is a significant challenge to the development of advanced driver assistance systems. Despite recent advances in the embedded vision area, vision algorithms still are an experimental field studded with stubborn problems. Weeding through a growing number of vision algorithms to aid the time-consuming task of generating test objects necessary for better vision algorithms has been DARPA's focus in recent years. Under a program called Visual Media Reasoning (VMR),...
