New AI Sees Like a Human, Filling in the Blanks

Most AI agents -- computer systems that could endow robots or other machines with intelligence -- are trained for very specific tasks -- such as to recognize an object or estimate its volume -- in an environment they have experienced before, like a factory. But the agent developed by Grauman and Ramakrishnan is general purpose, gathering visual information that can then be used for a wide range of tasks.
