In this week’s show we explore computer vision and perception, and the research involved in advancing a computer’s ability to understand the real world.

We talk with Intel senior researchers Rahul Sukthankar and Lily Mummert from the Intel research lab in Pittsburgh about practical applications like tracking honeybees in a hive, watching for signs of swarming. And we talk with Mary Purcell Miramontes, a national leader with the USDA, about the growing problem of Colony Collapse Disorder.

While his colleagues are tracking bees, Branislav Kveton, machine learning researcher at Intel Labs in Santa Clara, California, tells us of his developments of algorithms for facial recognition.
