June 24th, 2016 – Using deep learning techniques, a group of researchers has trained a computer to recognise events in videos on YouTube — even the ones the software has never seen before like riding a horse, baking cookies or eating at a restaurant. Researchers from Disney Research and Shanghai’s Fudan University used both scene and object features from the video and enabled link between these visual elements and each type of event to be automatically determined by a machine-learning architecture known as neural network.
