Facebook helps AI take a first-person view of life
A long-term artificial intelligence research project led by Facebook could help answer the eternal question: "Where did I put that thing?". In a blog post, Facebook argues that "Next-generation AI will need to learn from videos that show the world from the centre of the action". Ego4D is a collaborative effort to gather a "Massive-scale egocentric video dataset" to assist in the development of computer vision and AI systems that help users interact with the world from a first-person perspective. "Next-generation AI systems will need to learn from an entirely different kind of data - videos that show the world from the centre of the action, rather than the sidelines," wrote Kristen Grauman, lead research scientist at Facebook. Facebook told the publication such safeguards would be implemented as applications were developed.
