    What is machine vision?

    Machine vision, also known as computer vision, is a field of artificial intelligence (AI) that focuses on enabling computers and machines to understand and interpret visual information from digital images or videos. It involves the development of algorithms and techniques that allow machines to extract meaningful data and insights from visual inputs, similar to how humans perceive and understand visual information.

    The goal of machine vision is to replicate human vision capabilities and provide machines with the ability to "see" and comprehend their surroundings. This technology allows computers to analyze, interpret, and make decisions based on visual data, opening up a wide range of applications in various industries.
