KOMO TV and KUOW FM: “Computer teaches itself everything about anything”

140620_levan_660KOMO TV reports on LEVAN – “Learn Everything about Anything” – a collaboration between UW CSE professor Ali Farhadi and Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence researcher Santosh Divvala.

LEVAN is a cloud-based computer program that can teach itself everything there is to know about a visual concept, and make the results searchable for anyone to access. LEVAN operates differently than traditional search engines, because it’s designed to learn to understand the concepts behind a specific image.
