Workshop: Data Centric AI

Human-inspired Data Centric Computer Vision


The vast majority of work in computer vision focuses on proposing and applying new machine learning models and algorithms for visual recognition. In contrast, relatively little work has studied how properties of the training data affect these models. For example, the Internet images and videos commonly used for training are very different from the inputs that human vision systems receive in our everyday lives. If the goal of computer vision is to build vision systems as intelligent as humans, we argue that we should study the actual inputs to human vision systems, and get hints to improve the training data for computer vision models. We use wearable cameras and eye gaze trackers to collect video data that approximates people’s everyday visual fields of views, and find the structure of the data that can potentially improve computer vision systems. This paper presents our previous work on this direction and advocates data centric computer vision inspired by human vision.
