Learn about the challenges of training computers to identify objects and how deep learning, an approach to artificial intelligence that is based on the way human brains work, is being employed to help computers recognize complex visual images, in these videos from NOVA Wonders: Can We Build a Brain? Vision, the main tool that most of us use to understand the world, may be key to building machines capable of human thought. But the problem is that programming computers to recognize objects is extremely difficult. As they advance in their attempts to build truly intelligent machines, some computer scientists are mimicking the way that the human brain links information it receives to recognize objects in our world. This resource is part of the NOVA Wonders Collection.
