New AI with Cognitive Vision

January 25th, 2005 | Filed under: AI, Computing, Programming | 3 Comments »


CogVis, a new AI computer, developed by scientists at the University of Leeds in Yorkshire, UK, has demonstrated the ability to learn new games through audio and visual input. Considering half our brain involved in our visual process, this is a significant leap in artificial intelligence. AI has been struggling with processing visual information for a some time now. Take for example, video surveillance. There are current video surveillance systems in place which use computer detection, but still rely on the human brain. These computer systems simply detect motion or a change in scenery and send the video image to a human to determine whether the body which triggered the alarm is a human or a tumble weed.
By combining visual and audio attention and recognition, learning, and memory, CogVis could be the breakthrough in creating AI.

    can you give me some other cogvis projects that was related to AI.

    thank you..

    I’m not sure what you mean. Cogvis is the name of this specific project.

    I guess the previous reader asked and what I will ask is:
    Are there any projects also use this sort of technic using similar combination of any visual and audio attention and recognition, learning, memory, and etc?
