I did some experiments that really highlight how heavily image recognition algorithms depend on probability - and how unprepared they are for surrealism.

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?

@deeds Ha, what a picture! As you predicted, Microsoft Azure (trained on Coco, I believe) reported it as "a crowd of people"
