Artificial Intelligence is about to appear in many more places than face recognition on social media and conversations with Alexa or Siri. The perfect convergence of AI, machine vision and automation means we will soon be seeing AI in 'the real world'. Low cost, high quality cameras, combined with low cost processing and advances in machine vision and machine learning techniques make this all possible today.

For example - a machine that 'sees' an orange (not a circle), determines if it is healthy and ripe, and can pick it without damage. Something that just a few years ago would have been science fiction can be achieved today with current technology.
