- Alexander Lyashevsky (AMD Performance Application Engineering organization) talks about the futur of OpenCL and facial recongnition technologies:
we won’t see a “simple” solution for object recognition until the scientists who create algorithms and build applications fully comprehend, and take advantage of, the teraflops that we – the computer hardware industry – are providing to every consumer buying an average desktop, laptop or tablet PC. So, keep your eyes open in the next 3-5 years for more exciting advancements!!
