Photogrammetry is the process of comparing multiple photos of the same location or item to produce a 3D map of it. It's a well-known method but in some cases is still reliable on human intelligence to determine, for instance, which frames of a video should be used to produce the best results.

Sit down to troubleshoot one, and you're signing up for an experience that runs a gamut between “Two minutes of Googling and I'm off to play Fornite,” and “Over the past 36 hours I've drunk 17 energy drinks, slept six minutes, mapped every single unlabeled UEFI option, and developed a niacin allergy.” Machines of the modern era may be more stable than their counterparts of yesteryear, but that doesn't mean they don't break.
