Researchers Build An #AI That’s Better At Reading Lips Than Humans  #MachineLearning

  • Scientists at the Oxford University have claimed to develop a new computer software program that can lip-read better than humans, which might give the hearing impaired a helping hand.
  • The new artificial intelligence (AI) software system called “Watch, Attend and Spell (WAS)” has been developed by Oxford University in collaboration with Google’s DeepMind.
  • The AI system correctly lip-read 50 percent of silent speech, while professional lip-readers got only 12 percent right, researchers found.
  • Speaking on the tech’s core value, Jesal Vishnuram, Action on Hearing Loss Technology Research Manager, said: “Action on Hearing Loss welcomes the development of new technology that helps people who are deaf or have a hearing loss to have better access to television through superior real-time subtitling.
  • AI lip-reading technology would be able to enhance the accuracy and speed of speech-to-text especially in noisy environments and we encourage further research in this area and look forward to seeing new advances being made.”

  • In a statement, Facebook said that computer vision could be used for anything from searching for images with just a few keywords (think Google Photos) to helping those with vision loss understand what’s in a photo.
  • One of the reasons Facebook is so excited about computer vision is that visual content has exploded on the site in the past few years.
  • Privacy groups call foul on WhatsApp sharing data with Facebook
  • As a company, we care more about using AI than owning AI,” says Larry Zitnick, a research manager at FAIR. “
  • It’s critical to understand not just what’s in the image, but where it is,” says Zitnick about what it would take for augmented reality applications to take off.
