Natural Languages and Natural Scenes
IN SOME OF THE JUST-PRECEDING CHAPTERS, WE HAVE SEEN THE IMPORTANT ROLE of data and of machine learning techniques for distilling and using these data. If one single theme has lately begun to unite the several disparate approaches to AI, ranging from logical representations and reasoning in Cyc to decision and estimation by neural networks, it is their dependence on massive amounts of data. Moving beyond toy problems and simple puzzles into real-world problems requires real-world data. In this chapter, I’ll explore how the latest systems for natural language processing and computer vision exploit data that are representative of the inputs they must deal with.
