Jacobs is trying to teach computers to understand the world around us

Professor Nathan Jacobs examines whether computers will be able to draw conclusions about the world around us by analyzing traffic patterns

Nathan Jacobs, senior lecturer in computer science at the University of Kentucky Road researcher In which computers can translate and understand their external environment through analysis And videos.

The program that Professor Jacobs Bonne knows to take large series of Taken by network cameras as well From sites Social, and transfer them to complex analysis using algorithms that identify patterns in the photographed material. The software can draw conclusions about the world these images represent.

"These can be templates that we use to understand the templates ourselves, or templates that we use to understand things about the camera or the location we are in," Jacobs says. "We intend to shoot videos of open areas and try to understand how people navigate, and how their choice of route to navigate varies according to changing conditions."

A relevant example is how clouds passing in the middle of a photographed scene may help the computer analyze the 3D geometry of the area, which direction the camera is in, or what kind of clouds it is. Another type of pattern analysis may be used to identify or predict human traffic, such as vehicular traffic on city streets or pedestrians on a university campus. This information may help to characterize normal human traffic patterns and can be used in a large variety of For troubleshooting.

How does this connect to androids?

One of the most difficult problems in robotics relates to movement in space, pattern recognition and rapid response. For a robot to function safely and rationally in a human environment, these problems need to be solved and taught to identify human movements and function in their environment in a way that does not endanger them. This is one of the basic requirements on the way to artificial intelligence that can serve without fear of humans.

Will we reach the Promised Land of Androids in human service in our lifetime? Tell us what you think about the reactions!

    I fixed it to "Senior Lecturer" - the problem is that there is simply no exact term exactly for assistant professor mainly because "Teaching Assistant" sounds much worse :)
