2016 July-August C/E[edit]

I've studied computer vision and computer graphics in graduate school, and I have been working in these fields in the industry for a while now. I'm in the process of copyediting this article with the aim of improving it over the 2016 July-August time period. Help and feedback are much appreciated. ← scribbleink ᗧHᗣT 06:25, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

Edit(s) that need substantiation in the body before adding to the lead section:

Very Poorly Written Article[edit]

Again, we have a bunch of techie jargon that essentially just amounts to ... jargon. And again, this is why computer engineers in general should not even attempt to write, except via a translator who understands the English language and knows how to communicate. This article rambles on and on about research and hypotheticals, and fails to mention even the most basic current methods re: how computer vision is being used and developed. LiDAR, for example. Not a word about it. Why not? Ugh.

Someone who reads this article might be interested in knowing what type of hardware is used to accomplish machine / computer vision. Cameras, LiDAR, radar, etc. Doesn't that seem reasonable? Maybe a few more words on applications and a few less words on theory would be in order.

I don't agree with the negative generalization. Also an article on a very technical topic is going to be technical. But there are some good points and thoughts in this comment. North8000 (talk) 11:37, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
It is very confusing to read due to lack of clear summary type statements, a somewhat rambling style, and massive duplication / repetition between sections. For various reasons it needs a definition section which I started. One of these reasons is that the lead should be a summary of what is in the body of the article. This was not the case with definition. Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 13:27, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
Ditto for the "tasks material". This will enable more summarization in the lead without losing content.North8000 (talk) 13:58, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

I added a single word on "lidar", as requested. Please go ahead and make further improvements. --DavidCary (talk) 16:16, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Some proposed changes[edit]

Kindly add the below as a reference* here "Applications-->Modeling objects or environments, e.g., medical image analysis [*]" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20172792 Hidasri (talk) 08:32, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

There are several problems with this request. There's not even proposed text which this reference would support. Second, it looks hyper-specialized and not likely to be useful/informative here. Third, static, off line analysis of images is not within the common meaning of computer vision. North8000 (talk) 12:54, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
