Facebook is using billions of Instagram images to train artificial intelligence algorithms - The Verge

Facebook announced at its F8 conference that it's using photos on Instagram to train its artificial intelligence algorithms to better understand objects in images.

Using the hashtags on the platform that literally labels the data, which is normally a huge hassle for developing effective machine learning algorithms, Facebook is able to collect relevant data and use it to train its computer vision and object recognition models. “We’ve produced state-of-the-art results that are 1 to 2 percent better than any other system on the ImageNet benchmark” said Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s chief technology officer.

As always, thanks for your time.
