• This result is the first time that an AI has surpassed the reported human-level performance on this visual recognition challenge.
  • Beyond surpassing human capability, the new system from Microsoft researchers improves on Google’s award-winning GoogLeNet system by 26 percent, as it performed with 6.66 percent error, the Microsoft researchers claim.
  • “While our algorithm produces a superior result on this particular dataset, this does not indicate that machine vision outperforms human vision on object recognition in general,” they wrote. “On recognizing elementary object categories (i.e., common objects or concepts in daily lives) such as the Pascal VOC task, machines still have obvious errors in cases that are trivial for humans.
