“Called the CaptionBot, the tool looks at the image you’ve uploaded to describe what it sees in the picture. It’s similar to what Microsoft demonstrated in its Seeing AI video, during which a bot helps a blind person describe what’s around him. But if this AI is to believed, we’re rather worried for that blind Microsoft developer.” – TheNextWeb
The hallmark of any great visual recognition A.I. is its ability to distinguish animals from food, obviously. Clarifai weighs in at an impressive 95.8% accuracy when put to this very scientific and adorable test:
Puppy or Bagel? Clarifai Score: 16/16
Labradoodle or Fried Chicken? Clarifai Score: 16/16
Seriously, a black hat, Microsoft? Two giraffes near a tree? A cat wearing a tie??? We get it – image recognition is hard. No one wants to pull a Google Photos. But does that make it ok to forgo teaching your model an entire concept?
Look at Clarifai’s image recognition results for the exact same images:
Clarifai demonstrates that teaching visual recognition to be smart IS possible. Instead of omitting concepts that are difficult to teach computers, let’s find ways to make our technology smarter!
