Dah-Jye Lee a BYU engineer he managed to eliminate the need for humans in the field of object recognition. He created an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration.
Professor of electrical and computer engineering Dah-Jye Lee, said:
“In most cases, people are in charge of deciding what features to focus on and they then write the algorithm based off that. With our algorithm, we give it a set of images and let the computer decide which features are important.
It’s very comparable to other object recognition algorithms for accuracy, but, we don’t need humans to be involved. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel each time. You just run it.”
