# Questions tagged [computer-vision]

The goal of computer vision is an automatic extraction of information out of images. It includes methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images and high-dimensional data from the real world in order to produce numerical or symbolic information, e.g., in the forms of decisions. The image data can take many forms, such as video sequences, views from multiple cameras, or multi-dimensional data from a medical scanner.
