How AI Sees the World — Image Recognition & Algorithmic Bias

Humans are able to see from birth, so we often take it for granted. Trying to teach a machine to see from scratch, however, is a whole other ballpark. But first, what even is “seeing” in the first place?

 

Vision has three parts:

  1. Being able to physically “see” the object in front of you
  2. Understanding and recognizing what it is
  3. Being able to respond to it

 

In humans, this process corresponds to our eyes being able to see what is in front of us, then our brains recognizing what it is.
