Glossary of Common Computer Vision Terms

Computer Vision (and Machine Learning in general) is one of those fields that can seem hard to approach because there are so many industry-specific words (or common words used in novel ways) that it can feel a bit like you're trying to learn a new language when you're trying to get started.

What is a Label Map?

In this post, we will demystify the label map by discussing the role that it plays in the computer vision annotation process. Then we will get hands on with some real life examples using a label map.
