Google racconta di come stia provando a insegnare al computer a descrivere le immagini: a fare in modo che il suo motore di ricerca riconosca il soggetto e l’ambiente dell’immagine, e riesca a riassumerli a parole:

We’ve developed a machine-learning system that can automatically produce captions to accurately describe images the first time it sees them. […] A picture may be worth a thousand words, but sometimes it’s the words that are most useful — so it’s important we figure out ways to translate from images to words automatically and accurately. As the datasets suited to learning image descriptions grow and mature, so will the performance of end-to-end approaches like this.
