Facebook’s New AI Teaches Itself to See With Less Human Help

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

Self-supervised learning previously has been used to translate text from one language to another, but it has been more difficult to apply to images than words. LeCun says the research team developed a new way for algorithms to learn to recognize images even when one part of the image has been altered.
