Today, even toddlers better comprehend a photograph… but tomorrow?
Computer scientists at Stanford are new ways to with which computers can identify what a photograph is showing.
This video of a TED talk describes the ImageNet project that has changed how computers “see,” Petapixel reports. “The project uses a database of 15 million photographs to teach computers to recognize things in pictures. After putting a monumental effort toward building and polishing the collection, Li’s team released the dataset to the world for free, and it has since become one of the industry benchmarks in how well computers can perform in recognition.”
