Chipmakers helping to give computers a visual cortex

A bunch of companies are working with the Khronos Group to standardize some nuts and bolts of machine vision. It's the kind of thing that could make it easier to write an augmented reality app for a mobile phone or sign-recognition software for an autonomous car, for example, because difficult low-level technology would be taken care of. The new standard is of course OpenVX, which is geared to make it easier for software to tap into some of those machine-vision functions.
