This could also assist blind people. Would it be called a seeing aid?
If I were to design one, I would put multiple sensors on a pair of glasses. Each sensor specializing in recognizing certain objects. One sensor could read text, another can work as a smart proximity sensor. Other sensors can help determine location like kitchen, bedroom, or living room. The user will be able to select which sensor(s) to receive information from.
Wouldn't it be nice if a robot vacuum can recognize an object and avoid it.
Bad design, 14 May 2020The AI co-processor within SoC is way more powerful and reliable, and can be used simultaneou... moreWhat you have in mind is already a bad implementation for this sensor. If you are into embedded platforms like SBCs, this sensor is a Godsend.
I really hope that they make a raspberry pi compatible module for this sensor. It would be very useful for low-cost ai-camera for example, raspberry pi zero or zero W.
YUKI93, 15 May 2020Sorry, but I'm not sure if I want AI to do the image processing and recognition for me.Because.. it is not for you?
Imagine a robot's eyes using this camera that can recognize things much faster, thus process the data to do even more advance task.
Or a store, wanna know how many people are in their store, what time is their highest peak so they can have more employee to handle
Or a security camera, doing analytics on people behavior thus can reduce the risk of criminality.
It is so much more than a smartphone and so much more important than fulfilling your need..

I guess so many don't understand this article but claim to understand it..

And see how it sell well..
Wow, this is a huge advance

With AI processor hardware on board it eliminates the need for high-performance processors or external memory, making it more secure because image data never leaves the chip, it also have much lower latency, very little bandwidth and significantly lower power usage.

And it seems you also don't read the article because if you do read you'll realize that Sony uses Google's MobileNet V1 for the AI.
Go to this link and look at the comment section if you want to see Eric R Fossum opinion.
1984 in the 21st century here we come!
China already preordered 10 mil. of these sensors.
This is a useless many Mobile SoC already have powerful image processor and some flagships have custom ones
It is for security cameras.
I am sure there will be comments of asking cellphones to have it.
There are many tech that will never make to phones, not even professional cameras.
