Even to match a template, we simply used the raw pixel contents to get a result and find out if an object exists in part of an image or not. However, we still haven't learned about the algorithms that allow us to differentiate between objects of a different kind, not just based on their raw pixels, but also the collective meaning of an image based on its specific features. It is almost a trivial task for a human being to identify and recognize different types of faces, cars, written words, ...
