In a recently published study, researchers from Rice University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) employed artificial intelligence (AI) to investigate how reflections in a variety of objects may be made into “cameras.” This study holds the potential to improve seeing objects that are around corners and out of view and could be especially beneficial to autonomous vehicles (i.e., self-driving cars).Researchers from MIT and Rice University have used artificial intelligence to develop a computer vision method called ORCa that converts reflections in glossy objects into “cameras”, thus allowing someone to observe the world much like they were peering through the “lenses” of everyday objects such as a ceramic coffee mug or a metallic paper weight.
