How the brain recognizes faces

Machine-learning system spontaneously reproduces aspects of human neurology by Larry Hardesty, MIT News Office CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — MIT researchers and their colleagues have developed a new computational model of the human brain’s face-recognition mechanism that seems to capture aspects of human neurology that previous models have

Computer learns to recognize sounds by watching video

Machine-learning system doesn’t require costly hand-annotated data by Larry Hardesty, MIT News Office CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — In recent years, computers have gotten remarkably good at recognizing speech and images: Think of the dictation software on most cellphones, or the algorithms that automatically identify people in photos
