AI struggles with mirror selfies as Facebook scientists try to instill new skills

Advances in artificial intelligence have led to the development of machine-learning algorithms that can recognize cats in photos and translate websites into different languages. Now, Facebook’s researchers are fathoming how to teach computers to ‘see.’ Larry Zitnick, lead researcher at the CoCo project (Common Objects in Context) at Facebook says people should not worry “about AI taking over the world” in the near future as they are still struggling to recognize whether a picture has an actual person in it or contains someone standing in front of a mirror taking a selfie.
