Object Detection

The ability of a Computer Vision system to detect and locate objects within an image or video. This is often achieved through the use of machine learning algorithms that have been trained on large datasets of annotated images.

Object Detection vs Image Recognition
  • Object Detection is the process of identifying and locating individual objects within an image. It involves detecting the presence of a list of objects and determining their location within the image (typically by drawing a bounding box around them).
  • Image Recognition is the process of identifying and classifying an entire image based on its visual content, typically outputting a single label or classification for the entire image.
