From a Philosophical point of view, how does Computer Graphics seem to differ from other fields such as computer vision, computational photography, etc?


I like to think of Computer Graphics as the use of computers to produce realistic images that humans can relate to in the real world while Computer Vision as the use of computers to understand natural images as close as possible to how the human brain understands them.

Computational Photography studies how to process captured digital images while Computer Graphics involves producing realistic images.
