Do you want your photo tagging sites like Flickr to better recognize cats and dogs? MIT’s research lab, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), is working on it. In December, CSAIL researchers will present a new way of using machine learning at the annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems. Built on a new object-recognition algorithm, this process will enable semantically related concepts to reinforce each other by examining the co-occurrence of tags on Flickr. (Related: MIT researchers create software that automatically repairs itself) MIT News’ Larry Hardesty wrote that CSAIL researchers’ object-recognition algorithm would be able to recognize and learn to weigh the co-occurrence of the tags “dog” and “Chihuahua” more (because they are semantically similar) than “dog” and “cat,” which would have fewer co-occurrences. The conventional…
