A new science is born. As most discrete research, this one is geared towards defense applications and hence not very much commented neither used in civil technology.
Data fusion, now extends its reach beyond the raw technical data analysis to include video sensors which spread all around.
A new particle called daton (data photon or semantic photon) is entering in the spot, carrying lots of promises regarding our capability to understand video and integrate video sensors in a whole environment perception.
It is already permitted to identify certain similarities between data fusion and nuclear fusion as addition of datons creates information and creates energy reactions that are carrying more meaning than independant datons themselves.
