Google releases AI training data set with 5 million images and 200,000 landmarks

Designing AI systems capable of accurate instance-level landmark recognition (i.e., distinguishing Niagara Falls from just any waterfall) and retrieving images (matching objects in an image to other instances of that object in a catalog) is a longstanding pursuit of Google’s AI research division. Last year, it released Google-Landmarks, a landmarks data set it claimed at the time was the world’s largest, and hosted two competitions (Landmark Recognition 2018 and Landmark Retrieval 2018) in which more than 500 machine learning researchers participated.

Today, in a significant step toward its goal of more sophisticated landmark-detecting computer vision models, Google open-sourced Google-Landmarks-v2, a new, larger landmark recognition corpus containing twice as many photos and seven times as many landmarks. Additionally, it’s launched two new challenges (Landmark Recognition 2019 and Landmark Retrieval 2019) on Kaggle, its machine learning community, and released the source code and model for Detect-to-Retrieve, a framework for regional image retrieval.

Cellebrite Adds Customizable AI-Driven Digital Evidence Category Capabilities to Its Analytics Solution

Cellebrite, the leading provider of digital intelligence solutions, today announced a new artificial intelligence (AI)-driven customization capability as part of the Cellebrite Analytics Solution.

This first-of-its-kind technology enables investigators and lab practitioners to create customized digital media categories to find and surface video and image evidence related to a specific topic relevant for their current investigations. This new capability complements the 13 pre-defined electronic media categories, such as weapons, drugs, suspected child exploitation and money, already available as part of the Cellebrite Analytics Solution. With this machine learning capability built into Cellebrite’s Analytics Solution, law enforcement can quickly create new categories and then train the system in just a few clicks to find pertinent images that can be key to generating leads and solving cases.

Artificial Intelligence Can Now Generate Amazing Images — What Does That Mean For Humans?

Turns out after they’ve been trained on enormous datasets, algorithms can not only tell what a picture is such as knowing a cat is a cat but can also generate absolutely original images. The artificial intelligence that makes this possible has matured significantly in recent years and in some applications is very proficient, but in other ways, still has a long way to go.

AI Recognizes What an Image Is

It’s taken two decades for computer scientists to train and develop machines that can “see” the world around them—another example of an everyday skill humans take for granted yet one that is quite challenging to train a machine to do.
