Goal:   Understanding barriers and opportunities in scalable distributed data filtering.
Problem statement:  We are a team creating a scalable photo analysis system for a smart highway.

Definition:  a high quality photo is one that isn’t blurred by movement or poor focus, reflections, debris, etc.  Given a set of photos of the same (vehicle,driver) pair, our colleagues who do machine learning would have ideas for how to recognize similarities and differences, how to pick the best one, etc. 
Today’s in-class activity:
Come up with a concept for how a distributed image capture and filtering system might operate.
