|Overview:||Computer vision is a growing discipline in the games industry. From the PlayStation Eye to mobile phones to the looming Natal, cameras are becoming a common sight on gaming platforms. Diarmid Campbell, head of Sony's London Studio Vision R&D group, presents what his group has learned creating computer vision algorithms for games.
