Googles Patent auf Objekt-Erkennung in Videos und Bildern

Google hat ein Patent namens “Automatic large scale video object recognition” (United States Patent 8254699) eingereicht. Abstract:

An object recognition system performs a number of rounds of dimensionality reduction and consistency learning on visual content items such as videos and still images, resulting in a set of feature vectors that accurately predict the presence of a visual object represented by a given object name within an visual content item. The feature vectors are stored in association with the object name which they represent and with an indication of the number of rounds of dimensionality reduction and consistency learning that produced them. The feature vectors and the indication can be used for various purposes, such as quickly determining a visual content item containing a visual representation of a given object name.

Es sollen also Objekte in (bewegten) Bildern erkannt werden. Die vorgestellte Technik ist laut Horst Bischof eine von mindestens fünf, sechs weitere[n] Methoden der Objekterkennung. Hangouts und Youtube fallen mir als erste Anwendungsmöglichkeiten ein.
