Given the following question:

which tags should be suitable for it in terms of the image recognition?

, or ?

Should we stick only to , or the other can be useful in some cases as well?

If multiple, what's the difference?


Categorizing things in pictures as certain types of objects definitely sounds like to me. After all, the computer is supposed to recognize what the thing is and then put them into categories.

Two of the three existing questions in don't really seem to be related to computerized image comprehension at all. The last - the question you linked - would, in my opinion, be better served by . seems more appropriate for questions involving the AI moving around and continually seeing the world and the states of the things in it (like self-driving cars do), which involves more than just figuring out what objects are present.

Since doesn't exist yet, I think we should wait for a compelling distinction between it and before creating it.

  • $\begingroup$ The visual-search was applied to the linked question, because it was relating to search using visual data. $\endgroup$ – kenorb Aug 18 '16 at 15:38
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting. I don't see it on the question, and the tag says there are no questions tagged with it. (I blame caching.) $\endgroup$ – Ben N Aug 18 '16 at 15:39
  • $\begingroup$ I mean it was edited out, so that's why I'm asking whether we should burn this tag. $\endgroup$ – kenorb Aug 18 '16 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ @kenorb Ah. In the absence of a notable difference between it and [image-recognition], my inclination would be to leave it gone. (I wasn't the one who removed it, though.) $\endgroup$ – Ben N Aug 18 '16 at 16:35
  • $\begingroup$ @BenN No, I was. :P And I did leave a comment, saying that I thought that [image-recognition] covered it all. (And since it was a suggested edit, kenorb could have rejected it...) $\endgroup$ – Mithical Aug 18 '16 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ I accepted it, I agree that image-recognition covers that, so no worries, but I wanted to double check whether this tag could be useful for that kind of questions or other. In some studies they use 'visual-search' as a keyword. It indicates you're using image recognition for searching, not only classification. $\endgroup$ – kenorb Aug 18 '16 at 16:53
