Deep Behaviors and Predictive Machine Vision

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory trained computers to not only recognize what’s in a video, but to predict what humans will do next.

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory trained computers to not only recognize what’s in a video, but to predict what humans will do next.

Trained on YouTube videos and TV shows such as “The Office” and “Desperate Housewives,” a computer system can now predict whether two people are likely to hug, kiss, shake hands or slap a high five.

This research will someday enable robots to more easily navigate human environments—and to interact with humans by taking cues from our body language. It could also be used in retail environments, while we’re operating machinery or while we’re in classrooms learning.
