- Computer vision
Image classification is a machine learning associated with Computer vision. Its goal is to assign a class to a particular image. When this class corresponds to an object depicted in the image, the task is called Object recognition.
In general, image classification can also be applied to many other areas. For example, in medical imaging, one may want to design an algorithm that can classify
Convolutional neural networks have been successful at many image classification tasks, and are starting to be overtaken by transformers for some applications.
