Facebook Releases Adorable Video of Dogs to Explain A.I


Facebook has released a video containing dogs to help it’s users understand Artificial Intelligence. Facebook explains that A.I learns through repetition. Engineers are training computers to recognize patterns. They do this by showing the A.I data (for this example we we will use dogs). The A.I is shown thousands of photos of dogs (varying breed, colors, etc.) until it can recognize what a dog is. While A.I is often seen as scary and mysterious, it actually learns very similar to the way human beings do. The article following the video compares “machine learning”, a fundamental part of A.I training, to that of a child learning to say their first word.
