Object-recognition AI – the dumb program's idea of a smart program: How neural nets are really just looking at textures



Some systems pretrained on ImageNet might not perform so well in other domains, like facial recognition or medical imaging.

I must admit, that kind of surprises me. Having spent many hours behind a microscope, doing pathology screening, and lived through the emergence of image analysis software, I thought I remembered parameters like roundness, circumference and stuff. Later, thought I recognised the same principles on radiological images. So are we saying here that image analysis software does nothing at all with shape?

BTW, the thing that is REALLY worrying is the graph with the normal, clear pic of the cat; only 99% of humans recognised that? That must have been a real brutal night at the pub then...
