Design and Implementation of a "What"-Oriented Open Vision Library
Changsong Shen, Steve Oldridge, Amir Afrah, Gregor Miller and Sidney Fels
Design and Implementation of a Vision APIs typically expect developers to specify how to solve a problem. Therefore state-of-the-art technologies are generally under-used due to either low awareness or time constraints. Under our what-oriented methodology for vision processing, the Open Vision Library (OpenVL) requires application developers to specify what they want the result to be, leaving the compiler/run-time implementations to determine how to do it.
