    One of the obvious goals of almost every computer vision project is to enable a machine to see, and perceive, the world as a human does. Today, Facebook has started talking about Ego4D , its own effort in this space, for which it has created a vast new data set to train future models. In a statement, the company said that it had recruited 13 universities across nine countries, who had collected 2,200 hours of footage from 700 participants. This footage was taken from the perspective of the user, which can be used to train these future AI models. Kristen Grauman, Facebook's lead research...

    Facebook is pouring a lot of time and money into augmented reality, including building its own AR glasses with Ray-Ban. Right now, these gadgets can only record and share imagery, but what does the company think such devices will be used for in the future?

It imagines AI systems that are constantly analyzing peoples' lives using first-person video; recording what they see, do, and hear in order to help them with everyday tasks. Facebook's researchers have...

    If the AIs of the future are, as many tech companies seem to hope, going to look through our eyes in the form of AR glasses and other wearables, they'll need to learn how to make sense of the human perspective. We're used to it, of course, but there's remarkably little first-person video footage of everyday tasks out there - which is why Facebook put collected a few thousand hours for a new publicly available dataset .
    The challenge Facebook is attempting to get a grip on is simply that even the most impressive of object and scene recognition models today have been trained almost...
