Engadget: AI can identify objects based on verbal descriptions

Engadget: AI can identify objects based on verbal descriptions. “Modern speech recognition is clunky and often requires massive amounts of annotations and transcriptions to help understand what you’re referencing. There might, however, be a more natural way: teaching the algorithms to recognize things much like you would a child. Scientists have devised a machine learning system that can identify objects in a scene based on their description. Point out a blue shirt in an image, for example, and it can highlight the clothing without any transcriptions involved.”
