  • IBM and MIT to Cooperate for the Sake of Building AI Audio-Visual Technologies

IBM and MIT are cooperating for the sake of building AI audio-visual technologies. It is a challenge yet it is possible to accomplish it given the resources at the disposal of scientific man.

The research staff at IBM and the experts at MIT will be putting two and two together to come up with advanced AI machine audio-visual comprehension technologies.

The novel lab purpose-built for this express reason will be churning out cognitive computing systems that copy the human ability to take sensory input and make sense of it all.

The audio and visual information can be analyzed in order to build a unique picture for the machine which it can then take into cognizance while performing various tasks. 

This leading-edge technology will come in handy in the fields of medicine, teaching and mass media. Technical issues surrounding pattern comprehension and predictive methodology will be resolved in the context of machine vision.

That is the goal and that is the aim of BM3C (the lab meant for this purpose). At the present time, machines cannot do the job on their own. They need human assistance and aid.

Yet it is not that difficult to forsee a future where these selfsame machines will be autonomous in matters having to do with these specific operations.  

Human beings who see a video clip of an event can give an oral narrative of the event with relative and remarkable ease. They can even predict with accuracy the consequences of the event seen on screen.

For a machine though this is currently a virtual impossibility. Yet the question is for how long. Starting from the current month, BM3C will use the collective ability of cognitive, brain and computer scientists to carry out a thorough analysis of the situation.  

Unaided machine understanding is the objective. This experiment will widen humanity’s horizons. From assistance in caring for the elderly and disabled all the way to revamping worn-out machinery, the applications are myriad indeed.

We live in a world where machines are doing the work of men. In the future, the health and productivity of humanity will improve thanks to the services lent by machines.

The next generation models of the human brain are being employed in the making of these audio-visual comprehension technologies. Both IBM and MIT will do their utmost to create what has not been seen before. In this, the whole of scientific civilization will prove to be their knowledge base.
