Predator Outdoes Kinect At Object Recognition 205

mikejuk writes "A real breakthough in AI allows a simple video camera and almost any machine to track objects in its view. All you have to do is draw a box around the object you want to track and the software learns what it looks like at different angles and under different lighting conditions as it tracks it. This means no training phase — you show it the object and it tracks it. And it seems to work really well! The really good news is that the software has been released as open source so we can all try it out! This is how AI should work."

    Unless you're a ballistic missile or insurgent you're likely to never see anything of those military systems. If we invent a matter replicator and only use it for creating delicious topping for ice cream it still wouldn't be as much of a waste as the military hush-hush superadvanced fancypants-never-for-good-use systems.
