"Farfade and co use a fundamentally different approach to build their model. They capitalize on the advances made in recent years on a type of machine learning known as a deep convolutional neural network. They created a database of 200,000 images that included faces at various angles and orientations and a further 20 million images without faces. They then trained their neural net in batches of 128 images over 50,000 iterations. The result is a single algorithm that can spot faces from a wide range of angles, even when partially occluded. And it can spot many faces in the same image with remarkable accuracy."
"Robots, moreover, could struggle to recognize unacceptable targets such as civilians and wounded combatants."
Killer humans almost never make such mistakes.
"Hominids didn’t spread first across Africa, and then the entire globe, by utilizing just one foraging strategy or sticking to a precise mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. We did it by being ever so flexible, both socially and ecologically, and always searching for the greener grass (metaphorically), or riper fruit (literally)."
