Facebook to Use User's Public Videos to Train its AI Systems

  • Facebook is looking to level up its AI by training it on public videos. Facebook on Friday said it's launching a project that'll automatically learn audio, textual, and visual representations from public videos uploaded to the site.
  • Facebook has announced an initiative 'Learning from Videos' under which it will use publicly available videos uploaded on its platform by users to train its artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Facebook says that doing so will not only improve the accuracy of AI systems but systems will also adapt and recognize the nuances and visual cues across different cultures and regions.
  • "By learning from global streams of publicly available videos spanning nearly every country and hundreds of languages, our AI systems will not just improve accuracy but also adapt to our fast-moving world and recognize the nuances and visual cues across different cultures and regions," Facebook wrote in a blog post. "And by helping AI researchers break away from the reliance on labeled data, we can improve AI-powered products and create entirely new experiences."
