Novel Machine Learning Methods for Characterizing Complex Datasets and Models

The integration of large datasets and powerful computational capabilities has resulted in the widespread use of machine learning (ML) in science, technology, and industry. However, most of the recent ML developments focus on supervised methods which require large training tests. However, these…

Researchers investigate why popular AI algorithms classify objects by texture, not by shape

Researchers investigate why popular AI algorithms classify objects by texture, not by shape

In a paper accepted to the 2020 NeurIPS conference, Google and Stanford researchers explore the bias exhibited by certain kinds of computer vision algorithms — convolutional neural networks (CNNs) — trained on the open source ImageNet dataset. Unlike humans, ImageNet-trained CNNs tend to classify…
