Facebook Challenges Google, Microsoft In AI, Builds Vision Algorithms For Video

Facebook refuses to remain stagnant and allow Google and Microsoft to excel at artificial intelligence (AI), so it is working on applying machine vision image technology to video, where objects are moving, interacting and continually changing. Engineers in the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) group call the technique “real-time classification,” which they believe can help people search for relevant and important Live videos on Facebook. The technology will have the ability to detect scenes, objects, and actions that could one day allow individuals to search and find real-time narration. The ability to search for and identify moving images and audio in videos will allow for more precise ad targeting. The project uses the source code for three of its image machine vision algorithms that Facebook recently made open and accessible to all…
