It seems to me they are two terms used to refer to the same concept, but, according to the Wikipedia page on Guassian filter

a Gaussian filter is a filter whose impulse response is a Gaussian function

So, what is the difference between an impulse response and a kernel? I am particularly interested in knowing the difference in the context of computer vision and image processing.
