Team develops vision system that improves object recognition
A research group at Disney Research Pittsburgh has developed a computer vision system that, much like humans, can continuously improve its ability to recognize objects by picking up hints while watching videos.
New algorithm could enable household robots to better identify objects in cluttered environments
For household robots ever to be practical, they'll need to be able to recognize the objects they're supposed to manipulate. But while object recognition is one of the most widely studied topics in artificial ...
Newest computer neural networks can identify visual objects as well as the primate brain
For decades, neuroscientists have been trying to design computer networks that can mimic visual skills such as recognizing objects, which the human brain does very accurately and quickly.
Teaching robots to see
Syed Saud Naqvi, a PhD student from Pakistan, is working on an algorithm to help computer programmes and robots to view static images in a way that is closer to how humans see.
Leap Motion offers VR mount for hand recognition device, reveals plans for better VR experience
Intelligent eyes for automation
Siemens is integrating new object recognition features into its optical identification systems. The solution is based on Simatic code-reading systems and extends its functionality with the help of the software ...
Smart object recognition algorithm doesn't need humans
(Phys.org) —If we've learned anything from post-apocalyptic movies it's that computers eventually become self-aware and try to eliminate humans.
Teaching computers to see—by learning to see like computers
Object-recognition systems—software that tries to identify objects in digital images—typically rely on machine learning. They comb through databases of previously labeled images and look for combinations ...
Teaching machines to see: Professor reverse-engineers human vision for computers
(Phys.org)—How do we know if we're looking at the three-dimensional world or at a kind of trompe l'oeil image painted on the inside of a huge glass sphere? More to the point, how would a robot know?
Locate and guide function for the human symbiotic robot 'EMIEW2'
Hitachi announced the addition of a new feature to the human symbiotic robot, EMIEW2, where when asked the location of an object, is now able to smoothly guide the enquirer to the location of the object after ...
Go fish! Scientist trains goldfish for object perception research (w/ video)
The fictitious storybook character Dr. Doolittle was known for talking with animals.
NRL researchers produce award-winning AI video
Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) scientists recently won the "Best Educational Video" award at the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence's (AAAI) annual conference held in San Francisco.
Algorithm for identifying object boundaries in digital images 50,000 times more efficient than predecessor
Determining the boundaries of objects is one of the central problems in computer vision. It's something humans do with ease: We glance out the window and immediately see cars as distinct from the sidewalk ...
New mathematical model of brain information processing predicts some of vision peculiarities
The human retina -- the part of the eye that converts incoming light into electrochemical signals -- has about 100 million light-sensitive cells. So retinal images contain a huge amount of data. High-level ...
