I did some experiments that really highlight how heavily image recognition algorithms depend on probability - and how unprepared they are for surrealism. #machinelearning
@janellecshane You might find this interesting:
It's an art project, which uses AI to generate patterns, which fool other AIs.
Those patterns for example make an AI recognize a tank painted with it as an umbrella or similar.
@janellecshane i am now going to greet every sheep i encounter "hello, flower"
My student trained some classifiers on ImageNet and the result was that all quadrupeds were predicted as dog.
We then switched to MS Coco and found that -- while the caption generation is often good for a laugh -- the object detection was not pretty good in most cases.
Not detecting sheep on trees maybe shows that the Deep Networks now have actually a good "common sense"
I wonder how it fare on the columbine harvester picture?
