These are automatically generated captions from a computer model that starts with just the raw pixels of an image, described in a recent research paper titled Show and Tell: A Neural Image Caption Generator that was just published on Arxiv (http://arxiv.org/abs/1411.4555).

+Oriol Vinyals, +Alexander Toshev, +Samy Bengio,  and +Dumitru Erhan in our research group at Google have been working on automatically generating these captions using an accurate convolutional neural network (similar to the one that won the 2014 ImageNet object recognition challenge) combined with a powerful recurrent neural network language model (using an LSTM, a particular kind of recurrent network that is good at capturing long-range dependencies in sequence data, similar to the model that was used recently by our group's recent work on using LSTMs for machine translation).  The system initializes the state of the language model with the features from the top of the convolutional neural network, and is then trained to generate captions using a modest amount of human-labeled training data of (image, caption) pairs, and the resulting system does a good job of generalizing to generating captions automatically from previously-unseen images.

Since two of these folks sit within 15 feet of me, I've enjoyed watching their progress on this project and chatting with them over the past few weeks as it has developed.  The examples you can see in the New York Times article are great examples of what the system can do: it doesn't always get it right, but in general, the captions it generates are very fluent, mostly relevant to the image, and sometimes show a surprising level of sophistication.  Furthermore, because it is a generative model, and we're sampling from the distribution of possible captions, you can run the model multiple times, and it will generate different captions.  For one image, it might generate the two different captions "_A close up of a child holding a stuffed animal_" and "_A baby is asleep next to a teddy bear._"

+John Markoff of the New York Times has written up a nice article about this work (along with some similar research out of Stanford that has been happening concurrently):

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/18/science/researchers-announce-breakthrough-in-content-recognition-software.html

A Google Research blog post about the work has also just been put up here:

http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-picture-is-worth-thousand-coherent.html

An Arxiv paper titled Show and Tell: A Neural Image Caption Generator appears here:

http://arxiv.org/abs/1411.4555

You can see a few more examples at the end of the set of slides from a talk I gave recently in China (pages 75 to 79 of this PDF):

[ Edited to insert the title and link to the Arxiv paper now that it made it through the Arxiv editorial review process. ]
Scientists have created artificial intelligence software able to recognize the content of photos and videos with such accuracy than it can sometimes mimic humans.

Roughly five months ago, my responsibilities at LinkedIn expanded to include directly overseeing product. Consumer web product development has long been a passion of mine and was one of the reasons I was initially hired as CEO, so I was excited about the opportunity.My overall objective for the team was simple: To build great products. LinkedIn has been able to create a lot of value for our members and customers, but there's clearly plenty of roo...

Module developers, this is for you.  

Since DevCon2 in January, at events such as MWC, and others, we’ve seen lots of enthusiasm from Ara module developers. That’s awesome!  

This post is intended to encourage you to reach out to us on
ara-dev@google.com if you are ready to commit to having your module(s) available for our market pilot in Puerto Rico later this year. In the next few months, we’d like to work closely with you to maximize the success of your efforts and the pilot.  We are interested in engaging at all different levels, from individual module makers to mobile OEMs developing complete module bundles. 

The Project Ara team here at ATAP remains committed to developing, manufacturing, and distributing the endoskeleton while working with you the module developers to kickstart the Ara module ecosystem. As well, we will continue to provide guidelines and agreements intended to ensure the quality and performance of individual modules made for the Ara ecosystem as a whole.  

In the meantime, we're heads down working on the next design spiral and planning for the market pilot.  We’ve added a few folks to the team that will help us prepare.  You’ll meet them at the next Ara DevCon.  Stay tuned!
