“What We See and What We Value: AI With a Human Perspective,” Dr. Fei-Fei Li (Stanford University)
In this talk, Dr. Fei-Fei Li, Sequoia Professor in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University and Co-Director of Stanford’s Human-Centered AI Institute, will present her research with students and collaborators to develop intelligent visual machines using machine learning and deep learning methods. The talk will focus on how neuroscience and cognitive science inspired the development of algorithms that enabled computers to see what humans see and how we can develop computer algorithms and applications to allow computers to see what humans don’t see. Dr. Li will also discuss social and ethical considerations about what we do not want to see or do not want to be seen, and corresponding work on privacy computing in computer vision, as well as the importance of addressing data bias in vision algorithms. She will conclude by discussing her current work in smart cameras and robots in healthcare as well as household robots as examples of AI’s potential to augment human capabilities.
This popular event, open to the Ithaca community and the campus audience, generally draws an overflow audience and is followed by a reception.
