Neural networks are becoming increasingly more capable at identifying the world around them yet as seen in this video from artist and coder Kyle McDonald, they’re far from perfect.
McDonald modified a version of NeuralTalk to run from the webcam on his 2013 MacBook Pro. He then walked around Amsterdam with the notebook in hand, watching as the neural network (attempted to) identify what it was seeing in real-time. For all of the incorrect guesses, the system actually got a lot of it – much to the amazement of the “man eating a hot dog in a crowd.”
