Hug or handshake? @MIT researchers created an #AI system that can predict human interactions

  • “I’m excited to see how much better the algorithms get if we can feed them a lifetime’s worth of videos,” says Vondrick. “
  • When predicting which of the four actions the person would perform one second later, the algorithm correctly predicted the action more than 43 percent of the time – and humans who have been watching TV for years were only able to predict the next action with 71 percent accuracy.
  • In their second study, the algorithm was shown frames from a video and asked it to predict what object will appear five seconds later.
  • Using a Tesla K40 GPU with the cuDNN -accelerated Caffe deep learning framework, the researchers trained their network on 600 hours of prime-time television shows including The Office and Desperate Housewives .
  • Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory developed an algorithm that can predict whether two individuals will hug, kiss, shake hands or slap five in the next scene.
