Facebook Shows Off Its Latest Form Of Artificial Intelligence
Yann LeCun, Director of AI Research at Facebook has been hard at work with his team to up the ante on its artificial intelligence and facial recognition software for the company. In the video, LeCun explains that the “personal assistant project, which is a combination of humans and AI. If you want, you can have the AI sort of watch over the shoulder and kind of learns to answer questions from them or solve problems.”
The demonstration shows a phone with multiple pictures where the user asks the AI what is going on in the photos with closed and open questions like “What game is being played? or “What color is the ball?” It starts off pretty basic, but the more the demonstration goes on, the more you see that the software is fast and very observant. If Facebook needs anything, it needs more elaborate functions for people to post thousands of photos to show friends and family.
I’m sure people watching this in Europe will be ticked off that the AI called the game being played “soccer” instead of “football.” Sorry, every country other than the United States.
