The Game-Changing Technology Every Company Needs to Prepare for Now

Fanuc is working on an unsupervised learning system, so A.I.-powered robots can learn skills on their own. Tesla is developing A.I. infrastructure for autonomous vehicles, which includes new kinds of maps and decision-making software. And Clarifai is building software that will automatically tag, organize, and search content.

The data that transformed AI research—and possibly the world

Alumni of the ImageNet challenge can be found in every corner of the tech world. The contest’s first winners in 2010 went on to take senior roles at Baidu, Google, and Huawei. Matthew Zeiler built Clarifai based off his 2013 ImageNet win, and is now backed by $40 million in VC funding.

Top startups shaping the future of personal photos

When most people think of photo sharing and images they likely think of the major platforms and big companies: Instagram and its parent company Facebook, Google, Pinterest, Twitter, Dropbox, Snap and Flickr. However, there's a world of startups beyond just those big companies.

Every AI Powerhouse Wanted This Whiz Kid. He’s Taking Them On Instead

Can’t describe a style? Search with a Pinterest board with West Elm Style Finder

Already Winning at Pinning, West Elm Brings AI to Pinterest

Image recognition tools, data-trained to recognize objects by class, have evolved into neural networks that ‘learn’ as they go, such as recognizing that things with rubber bottoms, a leather or canvas upper, laces and other details all belong in the same category.

West Elm’s New AI Tool Scans Pinterest To Recommend Furnishings

Last year, Clarifai introduced a drag-and-drop online tool called Custom Training that allows anyone to upload a few photos of specific items, say a brand of shoes, to train a classifier to recognize that type of items in other photos. Chatelain’s team created a site that connects Clarifai’s tool to Pinterest (when users paste in a board’s URL), develops a classifier of the style in the images, and filters out matching products from West Elm’s online catalog of about 5,000 items. (West Elm pays Clarifai based on the number of times it accesses the neural network.)
