"Amazon has just announced DeepLens, a smart webcam that uses machine learning to detect objects, faces, and activities like playing a guitar on the camera itself. The DeepLens isn’t available yet, but the idea of a smart camera is exciting.
Imagine being able to use a camera that’s able to tell when you’re playing a guitar, or creating a new dance, or just learning new skateboard tricks.
