Comment Image processing (Score 1) 95

When I started my PhD in image processing, I was given an 80-column, 24-line text terminal to the department microVax (approximately 1 MIP, shared between about 40 people). I was lucky, and got one of the good ones, it had an amber phospher :)

Seriously, the only place to see the results of the algorithm was on a shared display downstairs in the lab - which was in high demand. I ended up doing a lot of terminal-style graphs (mine wasn't a tektronix terminal, so I only had text-like characters) to prove an algorithm worked before actually seeing it.

And now I look at the technological ability of my freaking phone, and I wonder at just how far things have come in 30 years or so...

Got to be a few out there, the tests have been around since 2009- but that raises the question, who took them before 2013 if you can't even take the test until you've worked under a PE in the same field for 4 years?

That's kind of like requiring 40 years of .NET experience
