A Giant Leap for Machine Kind; When Robots Can See

Advancements in Artificial Intelligence are moving at a faster pace than ever. It’s already commonplace to give them voice commands and have then respond in natural language and even identify images they have been programmed to recognize.  But the next frontier in A.I. is teaching computers to ‘see,’ that is, to recognize unique objects the way humans so. But something that comes naturally to most people is a very complex problem for robots. Scientists at Virginia Tech are leading an effort in the A.I. community to get computers past a hurdle that has seemed almost insurmountable, until now. Robbie Harris reports. Scientists have been working on artificial intelligence since at least the 1960s. And theye’ve passed many milestones – computers winning at chess and now the Chinese game, GO, and…
