  9. History

Image recognition refers to the ability of a computer to decipher and understand the information fed to it from an image. In order to teach computers to process visual data, you have to teach them to recognize patterns. Some patterns of pixels define the edges of an object, others show dimensions, and sometimes patches of color might actually belong to the same object. Autonomous cars are equipped with cameras that analyze their surroundings and make sure they don’t bump into other cars, or pedestrians, or curbs, or any of the thousands of other things that can get in their way. The overall image recognition market was already at $15.95 Billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow to USD 38.92 Billion by 2021.
