US Scientists Create AI Able to Predict When People Hug, Kiss, Shake Hands

A team of scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created an algorithm that can anticipate human interactions more accurately than ever before. The artificial intelligence system, trained on 600 hours of YouTube videos and popular TV shows, can correctly decide, after just one second of a scene, whether two individuals will hug, kiss, shake hands or give a high five. It was also able to anticipate what object would likely appear in the video five seconds later. The self-learning artificial intelligence was applied to visual training data, which were basically freeze-frames showing different versions of what the scene might look like. After training the algorithm, the team tested it on new videos showing both actions and objects. The algorithm used systems called “neural networks,” which automatically classified one of the four actions. Then those actions were merged into one, and the algorithm used…
