...its too hard for Facebook to stop ads for land in protected areas in the Amazon rainforest.
Facebook has trained its most advanced semi-supervised computer vision system yet on a dataset of a billion public images taken from Instagram, its other social network. Known as SEER, short for SElf-supERvised, this massive convolutional neural network contains over a billion parameters. If you show it images of things, it …
Basically this is how human infants learn. They have eyes which see the world and objects in it. They then begin to learn language and names for things. Except in humans the process is ongoing. As our infants progress we feed their brains more complex stuff with names again and again and again.
Just doing it once is not the way to go. Maybe they need to get a better AI to better label the images to then better correct this one.
You're missing out a stage. Vision is only one aspect of this. A baby learns about the world by correlating inputs from all the senses. It will learn that a banana has an inside which is edible. It will also learn that it is much smaller than a golfing umbrella, something which is not necessarily obvious from an image. And it will be making these correlations before gaining language.
An object and a picture of the object are two different objects.
That's probably how things will go. You can create a network that learns where the first network got it wrong and create a feedback loop, with a view to improving various steps later on.
The important thing is the speed of the training given the volume of data because once the model is considered "good enough" it can be deployed on kinds of devices.
i hope that they have signed releases for each and every image. If not then all it takes is one DMCA takedown to make this an exercise in futility.
What? You mean to say that anyone who posts on Instagram gives Zuck full rights to use the image for anything they want?
Good job that I never have felt the urge to visit any of the sites of crap that your company runs.
Doesn't require a DMCA....the owner just needs to remove it or delete their account.
"This concerns many advertisers, with as much as 52.8% of Digital Marketers considering government regulation or the threat of regulation as an obstacle in their ability to leverage user data.
On the other hand, according to a Cisco Customer Privacy Survey taken in 2019, 84% of their respondents expressed their concern for data privacy. They believed that they should have more control over how their data is processed, and 80% of those people even went to far as to mention that they would be willing to take action to defend it."
Yet these same people just put stuff out there for the world to see without a care in the world.
The bigger thing though, "Facebook told us SEER remains a proof-of-concept idea and won’t be used to power any of the web giant's features or products for the moment." The moment can end whenever they decide. Coming soon...auto tagging, then facial recognition, etc.
"i hope that they have signed releases for each and every image. "
Back in the day, both AOL and Geocities (and most likely many others) laid claim to a perpetual licence to use anything you put on their servers for any use they could think of. I would imagine most hosting services still do that. Although in this day and age, that's a little more risky since they probably don't want to be laying claim to and using any illegal material their users may post.
