“Engineers at the tech giants built tools years ago that could put a name to any face but, for once, Silicon Valley did not want to move fast and break things.”
“With a unified model for a large number of languages, we run the risk of being mediocre for each language, which makes the problem challenging. Moreover, it’s difficult to get human-annotated data for many of the languages. Although SynthText has been helpful as a way to bootstrap training, it’s not yet a replacement for human-annotated data sets. We are therefore exploring ways to bridge the domain gap between our synthetic engine and real-world distribution of text on images”.
“Built by creative agency Redpepper, There’s Waldo zeroes in and finds Waldo with a sniper-like accuracy. The metal robotic arm is a Raspberry Pi-controlled uArm Swift Pro which is equipped with a Vision Camera Kit that allows for facial recognition. The camera takes a photo of the page, which then uses OpenCV to find the possible Waldo faces in the photo. The faces are then sent to be analyzed by Google’s AutoML Vision service, which has been trained on photos of Waldo. If the robot determines a match with 95 percent confidence or higher, it’ll point to all the Waldos it can find on the page”.
«We present a method to create universal, robust, targeted adversarial image patches in the real world. The patches are universal because they can be used to attack any scene, robust because they work under a wide variety of transformations, and targeted because they can cause a classifier to output any target class. These adversarial patches can be printed, added to any scene, photographed, and presented to image classifiers; even when the patches are small, they cause the classifiers to ignore the other items in the scene and report a chosen target class».
«In (very, very unpublishable) clips shared with Engadget, the system was able to identify both the names of the performers in a scene, and what they were doing. Tags such as « blowjob, » « doggy, » « cowgirl, » and « missionary » floated on screen with the corresponding action. The system is also capable of, for instance, identifying blonde performers and adding the requisite tags».
