The latest entrant in this domain of technological disruption comes in the form of the Apple Vision Pro; a spatial computer vision-enabled headset that is far more than what meets the eye.
A large chunk of software development today takes place in cloud-based environments, with cross-organizational networks for resource sharing and data exchange. This opens up the applications and resources to several cyber threats that exploit common vulnerabilities and attack routes. Therefore, solutions for application security also referred to as AppSec, have become a necessary component of the software development lifecycle.

Humans have exceptional power for image recognition. High-level image understanding, contextual knowledge, and the ability for parallel processing are some of the factors that contribute to precise recognition of objects, places, people, writing, and actions. However, humans develop these abilities over time and have a limitation as well. When it comes to recognizing images from a large set of data, human processing power might fail.
