Carnegie Mellon computer searches web 24/7 to analyze images and teach itself common sense

A computer program called the Never Ending Image Learner (NEIL) is now running 24 hours a day at Carnegie Mellon University, searching the Web for images, doing its best to understand them.

 

 

As it builds a growing visual database, it is gathering common sense on a massive scale.

 
NEIL leverages recent advances in computer vision that enable computer programs to identify and label objects in images, to characterize scenes and to recognize attributes, such as colors, lighting and materials, all with a minimum of human supervision. In turn, the data it generates will further enhance the ability of computers to understand the visual world.
 
But NEIL also makes associations between these things to obtain common sense information: cars often are found on roads, buildings tend to be vertical, and ducks look sort of like geese.
 
“Images are the best way to learn visual properties,” said Abhinav Gupta, assistant research professor in Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. “Images also include a lot of common sense information about the world. People learn this by themselves and, with NEIL, we hope that computers will do so as well.”
 
Since late July, the NEIL program has analyzed three million images, identifying 1,500 types of objects in half a million images and 1,200 types of scenes in hundreds of thousands of images. It has connected the dots to learn 2,500 associations from thousands of instances.

Great progress compared to projects, such as ImageNet and Visipedia, that have tried to compile this type of structured data with human assistance. Reply
