Martha Larson: AI vs. Our Eye: New Perspectives on Adversarial Images – 10 March 13.15–14.30
March 10, 2020 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
This I2S seminar series lecture explores different approaches to answering the questions: Does AI really see images the way that people do? What are the consequences of the difference between AI and our eye?
What do we see when we look at an image? It depends on the context and on our point of view. Today’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology astounds us with its ability to automatically interpret the contents of images. But does AI really see images the way that people do? What are the consequences of the difference between AI and our eye? This talk explores different approaches to answering these questions, putting a special focus on computer vision used to interpret the type of images people share online. We look at some of the shortcomings of current AI technology in understanding images. We also look at adversarial images that are easily interpreted by humans, but posed difficulties for computers, and discuss how they might actually be useful for protecting privacy. Finally, we discuss the MediaEval Benchmarking Initiative for Multimedia Evaluation in which researchers are attempting to make progress on some of the interesting open questions of AI for image interpretation.
