Computer vision deals with the extraction of information about a scene by analysis of images of that scene. The field had its origins over 30 years ago. Traditionally, it dealt with scenes that were essentially two-dimensional: documents, microscope images, high-altitude images of the earth's surface. The classical approach to analyzing such images involves segmentation of the image into parts corresponding to meaningful parts of the scene; measurement of properties of and relations among the parts; and object recognition based on comparison of the configuration of parts, properties and relations (essentially a labeled graph) with standard configurations representing the objects of interest.
