Computer Vision News - May 2024

33 Computer Vision News these days I will hit the startup lotto, and I will be able to retire out to some beautiful tropical island or down to Central America and have my nice little house and all day I get to work on a new computer vision – well, I don’t want to say new, I want to say it’ll derive from most of the things that already exist, but a new computer vision tailored specifically to making it easier to solve computer vision problems for all of the weird types of images that are out there. Not your standard 3channel RGB 8-bit images. I want a library that makes it really easy to do hyperspectral things, to work with satellite data, to work with microscope data, to work with the kinds of cameras we’ve never seen before. I’ve worked with thermal camera data in the past. It’s a pain in the butt. The limiter is not the camera exactly; you’ve got to change some beliefs about it. That’s the thing that I would like to do. I would like to spend my entire career sitting around an island probably spending most of my time writing that and maybe going out and teaching kids on the side. That would be perfect. If I didn’t have to worry about money, that is probably what I’d be doing. To hear more from Katherine, why not check out her very candid (and sarcastic) Twitter/X account?
