“Image Recognition technology has altered the perspective of the world. It is one of the most widely used applications of machine learning. In the healthcare industry, image recognition technology is constantly being used. It aids in the detection of tissue anomalies such as tumors, bone cracks, and various types of cancer. Robots that use computer vision and image recognition techniques power the microsurgical process in the healthcare sector. Image recognition is also widely used for advertising purposes, allowing users to discover similar items for sale utilizing image similarity models. Furthermore, with the introduction of driverless cars and ADAS systems in the automobile segment, the use of image recognition has increased in the sector because it aids in identifying the object or obstacle in front of the driver while driving and making automated decisions based on AI. Image recognition is also used in security cameras, drones, facial recognition biometrics devices, and other devices. The North America region is expected to dominate the market through 2020, owing to rapid technological adoption across various industry verticals such as healthcare, retail, automobiles, and so on. The use of facial recognition security measures and drones is expected to drive the regional market and the market is expected to continue to dominate in the forecast period.”, said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research-based global management consulting firm.
