Computer Trained to Reveal How it Uses AI to Identify Bird Species

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Researchers at Duke University have trained a computer to identify bird species through deep learning and show its reasoning. The innovation may prove useful in medical diagnostics. The team trained their deep neural network — algorithms based on the way the brain works — by feeding it 11,788 photos of 200 bird species to learn from, ranging from swimming ducks to hovering hummingbirds. A Duke team trained a computer to identify up to 200 species of birds from just a photo. Given a photo of a mystery bird (top), the A.I. spits out heat maps showing which parts of the...Read full article
