### How to decide whether a real life problem can be dealt with by computers?

I get that complexity theory will be helpful to decide whether the resources at hand can deal with a mathematical function, but when presented with a non-purely mathematical problem - like building a ...

### What is the best algorithm for detecting the texture of a person's clothes in real-time for a mobile robot?

I am working on the human following robot. the robot extracts a feature of clothes's texture and distinguishes between the people that they stand up in front of the robot. So, the robot needs that it ...
