    Panel: Is Computer Vision Enough?
    While LIDAR is currently the gold standard for building a point cloud and the price of LIDAR is dropping fast, the growing effectiveness of Computer Vision, with its cheap cameras and scalable software, to extract the point cloud from images threatens to obviate the need for LIDAR and other hardware solutions. (“Software will eat the world.”) For this reason, we want our panelists to tell us, “Is Computer Vision enough?” And if not, when might it be?.
