Stanford Team Creates Computer Vision Algorithm to Describe Photos

Computer software only recently became smart enough to recognize objects in photographs. Now, Stanford researchers using machine learning have created a system that takes the next step, writing a simple story of what’s happening in any digital image. At the heart of the Stanford system are algorithms that enable the system to improve its accuracy by scanning scene after scene, looking for patterns, then using the accumulation of previously described scenes to extrapolate what is being depicted in the next unknown image.
