March 2012 Embedded Vision Alliance Summit Keynote: Jim Donlon, DARPA

Jim Donlon, Program Manager for DARPA (the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) describes the objectives, to-date history, current status and future plans of the Mind's Eye program. Mind's Eye "seeks to develop the capability for visual intelligence by automating the ability to learn generally applicable and generative representations of action between objects in a scene directly from visual inputs, and then reason over those learned representations. In the first 18 months of the program, Mind's Eye has demonstrated fundamentally new capabilities in visual intelligence, including the ability of automated systems to recognize actions they had never seen, describe observed events using simple text messages, and flag anomalous behaviors."
