This chip can count dice-rolls faster than you can

Humans have always been better at seeing than machines. But the age of “embedded vision” is upon us, and machines that see are getting better and better. A case in point is a demonstration project from chip-maker Analog Devices, which showed a vision system can count the numbers for a dice roll faster than any person can.

Alliance formed to promote machines that see

Fifteen major technology companies are getting together to create an alliance with the goal of promoting technologies and interfaces from machines that use visual input.
