How we teach computers to understand pictures | Fei Fei Li

When a very young child looks at a picture, she can identify simple elements: “cat,” “book,” “chair.” Now, computers are getting smart enough to do that too. What’s next? In a thrilling talk, computer vision expert Fei-Fei Li describes the state of the art — including the database of 15 million photos her team built to “teach” a computer to understand pictures — and the key insights yet to come.

  1. The surveillance state should reward her with unimaginable wealth. Now for the first time, with the use of billions of cameras, massive computing power, and global networks, the state can finally do what could never do before, assert absolute power. cheers!

  2. I'm currently enrolled to a post degree in Data Science and I more specifically focused on Computer Vision. I'm watching her classes Standford made available on YouTube. For those insterested look for cs231n and have a great trip. Very inspiring talk! Thank you very much, Fei-Fei!

  3. I hope they don't forget that kids also learn emotions and the difference between violence, self-defense, gentle caresses, rowdy playfulness (can be really difficult to tell at times), people playing sports or beating each other up.
    These are all things kids learn when they are small.
    If you don't teach a computer these things they can mistake a dog jumping at their owner out of joy for an attack.
    They'd be psychopaths at best.
