Where We See Shapes, AI Sees Textures

@GaryMarcus shared
RT @MaxALittle: @raf_abate @DrHughHarvey https://t.co/Pvo6Kf76es Nice summary of recent work demonstrating quite clearly: CNNs exploit texture; are not as much of an advance over classical CV algorithms as supposed; benchmarks (e.g. ImageNet) are too confounded to be rigorous tests of CNN superiority. @GaryMarcus

To researchers’ surprise, deep learning vision algorithms often fail at classifying images because they mostly take cues from textures, not shapes.
