A system from Facebook AI Research that can differentiate between objects in photos, and can do it more rapidly, with less learning time than other algorithms. Image from Facebook The thing to know about Yann LeCun, the director of Facebook AI Research (FAIR) and a professor at NYU, is that he was right. LeCun was an early developer and proponent of deep learning during the 1980s, a machine-learning technique that builds and combines different types of artificial intelligence so they are standardized to all learn new things the same way. When this and other neural network techniques were unpopular during the 1990s and early 2000s, LeCun continued his work. And now he has emerged victorious, with a pretty sweet gig at Facebook. “I was basically given carte blanche to create…
