A horse's head

If your horse gets sick with colic and the sickness isn’t caught soon enough, you may lose one of your favorite friends, like Alexa Anthony did with her horse, Magic. Eventually this was the motivation for her to create Stableguard. It uses computer vision to monitor your horse and identify unusual behavior.

After walking away from a networking event with several business cards in hand, there’s a chance (if not a high likelihood) you’ll lose some of them—and the connection opportunities that come with them. Fortunately, Microsoft’s camera app Pix uses computer vision to scrape your contact’s information from a business card he or she hands you and create an iPhone Contact for you. Thanks for making one more pesky task that much easier, Microsoft.

Farmers have to work hard for their livelihoods, and undoubtedly they welcome advancements that make their lives easier and increase profit margins. Now, specifically cow farmers can benefit from AI and ML. By using computer vision, farmers can identify and track each one of their cows individually, seeing exactly what they ate and how much, as well as when they might be sick.

For those of us who have worked in Adobe Photoshop for work projects, school projects, fun projects, we realize the significance of Photoshop’s latest update, version 19.1. Adobe’s Sensei, its AI platform, is about to make our lives a whole lot easier. Gone are the days of manually cutting out subjects in pictures (huzzah!). While our former selves once internally groaned at the tedium and frustration of cutting out photo subjects, our future selves will rejoice in a nirvana-like state at what’s now possible: the one-click subject select. Hopefully it’s as good as it sounds.

Sometimes, it’s hard to say what makes you think someone is lying to you. Was it a slight flick of the eyelid, an almost imperceptible tremor of the lip, an ever-so-slight flush of the face? But when there’s more at stake than the result of a little white lie—like the wrong person begin convicted of a crime—you have to rely on more than a perception. Upping the lie-detecting ante, a research group tested a computer vision application on videos of truth-tellers and liars on the stand in the courtroom to see how well it could tell when a person was or wasn’t lying, and it was accurate nearly 90 percent of the time—beating humans significantly at the task, though, it’s probably important to mention that the video was tested on actors.
