This Video Shows How Computers See the World

But a new video called Robot Readable World makes the argument for a slightly more complex form of robot vision. Robots and computers currently process the video that we give them using complicated algorithms, and that software is starting to give computers and robots their own distinct way of seeing. compiles over 30 different examples of video recognition technologies (all listed on the video's description), and puts them over an unnerving soundtrack (a song called Cold Summer Landscape by the band Blear Moon) to create a vision of how computers break complex forms and movement down into something they can understand. Seeing the kind of intense processing that it takes for a robot to do a simple task like turning a corner really drives home how, even as robots gain the ability to replicate more and more human actions, the machines were building are thinking in fundamentally different ways.
