IBM to collaborate with MIT to develop AI-based vision systems

IBM Research is to collaborate with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop machine-vision systems. The new IBM-MIT Laboratory for Brain-inspired Multimedia Machine Comprehension’s (BM3C) will work on the development of cognitive computing systems that can emulate the human ability to comprehend visual and audio inputs. BM3C will address technical challenges around both pattern recognition and prediction methods in the field of machine vision that are currently impossible for machines alone to accomplish. For example, online retailer Ocado has talked to Computing about the need for such systems in order to automate the packing of supermarket items for delivery so that potatoes are packed before tomatoes. The BMC3 collaboration will bring together brain, cognitive, and computer science specialists to conduct research in the field of unsupervised machine understanding of…
