In technical terms, computer vision researchers “build algorithms and systems to automatically analyze imagery and extract knowledge from the visual world. ”In layman’s terms, they build machines that can see. And that’s exactly what Principal Researcher and Research Manager, Dr. Gang Hua, and Computer Vision Technology team, are doing. Because being able to see is really important for things like the personal robots, self-driving cars, and autonomous drones we’re seeing more and more in our daily lives.
Today, Dr. Hua talks about how the latest advances in AI and machine learning are making big improvements on image recognition, video understanding and even the arts. He also explains the distributed ensemble approach to active learning, where humans and machines work together in the
lab to get computer vision systems ready to see and interpret the open world.
