Computers acquire images through various sensors that turn light and objects into binary data, but computers can’t understand what that data means. For a long time, this didn’t really matter because a computer would just store those images for later consumption by human. However, mere capture of images is no longer sufficient. In order to achieve the next level of intelligence, we need computer systems to actually understand what the images they capture represent and what they mean. Founded in 2013, Clarifai is a pioneer and early market leader in the computer vision industry, with their Image and video recognition API that can apply machine learning and AI techniques to provide powerful visual recognition to a wide range of applications.
