ImageNet has become one of the most influential visual datasets in the fields of Deep Learning and AI. More than 14 million photographs were gathered through a benchmarking effort that propelled the outbreak of Computer Vision and its wide range of applications such as surveillance, phone filters, medical imaging, biometry and autonomous cars. ImageNet is organised through 21,000 categories that are still being used today to train computational models. In September 2019, ImageNet creator Fei-Fei Li gave a talk at The Photographers’ Gallery as part of a 10th anniversary of ImageNet party, talking through the events and key people that led to the datasets creation. The event also featured a series of activities and presentations to showcase the impact of ImageNet, including a discussion by Dr. Alan Blackwell and a performace on annotation by Nicolas Malevé.

The more human-like artificial intelligence becomes, the more we understand about how our brains actually work. Through that discovery process, researchers are identifying ways to design artificial intelligence in ways that factor in the safety and morality of their potential impact. Greylock general partner Reid Hoffman interviews Dr. Fei-Fei Li, the co-director of Stanford’s Institute for Human-Centered AI, and Mira Murati, the CTO of OpenAI. In this interview, they discuss how technology like GPT-3 is being trained with human safety in mind, and how academia, industry, and policymakers are coming together to ensure AI is developed and deployed in ways that benefit all. This interview took place during Greylock’s Intelligent Future event, a daylong summit featuring experts and entrepreneurs working in artificial intelligence.

On Ep.20 of The Robot Brains Podcast, Pieter Abbeel is joined by Fei-Fei Li. Her legendary status in the field of AI precedes her on our podcast because she’s been discussed frequently by many of our previous guests – many of whom are her former students. She is the Sequoia Capital Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, Co-Director of the Stanford Institute for Human-Centred Artificial Intelligence (Stanford HAI). She was also the leading scientist and instigator of ImageNet, arguably the most momentous episode in the history of AI which allowed vision systems and neural nets to break out of academia and into real industries all over the world. On the show we talk to Fei-Fei about her illustrious career in academia, her involvement in the ImageNet and AlexNet breakthroughs, and her new, deeply personal reasons for focusing her latest work on transforming healthcare with AI.

If AI is to serve the collective needs of humanity, how should machine intelligence be built and designed so that it can understand human language, feelings, intentions and behaviors, and interact with nuance and in multiple dimensions? Stanford University computer science professor Dr. Fei-Fei Li and Greylock general partner Reid Hoffman discuss the ethical considerations researchers, technologists and policymakers should make when developing and deploying AI.

On May 11, Twitter announced that it had added former Google VP and A.I. guru Fei-fei Li to its board of directors, because of her “unparalleled expertise in engineering, computer science and artificial intelligence”. It was reported that Twitter took this action “as it grapples with coronavirus misinformation”. This news immediately sparked a lot of discussion and concerns, especially among overseas Chinese people, including myself. The main reason is because of Fei-fei Li’s ties with China, or the Chinese Communist Party, the CCP. Some call her “Red Expert”. Today I’d like to talk about some deeper ties she has with the CCP that many people may not be aware of yet, as well as why we should be very worried. 免翻牆短鏈接:, Truth saves lives.

Abstract: Artificial intelligence has begun to impact healthcare in areas including electronic health records, medical images, and genomics. But one aspect of healthcare that has been largely left behind thus far is the physical environments in which healthcare delivery takes place: hospitals, clinics, and assisted living facilities, among others. In this talk I will discuss our work on endowing healthcare spaces with ambient intelligence, using computer vision-based human activity understanding in the healthcare environment to assist clinicians with complex care. I will first present pilot implementations of AI-assisted healthcare spaces where we have equipped the environment with visual sensors. I will then discuss our work on human activity understanding, a core problem in computer vision. I will present deep learning methods for dense and detailed recognition of activities, and efficient action detection, important requirements for ambient intelligence, and I will discuss these in the context of several clinical applications. Finally, I will present work and future directions for integrating this new source of healthcare data into the broader clinical data ecosystem. Bio: Fei-Fei Li is a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Stanford, and the Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab.

It takes nature and evolution more than five hundred million years to develop a powerful visual system in humans. The journey for AI and computer vision is about fifty years. In this talk, I will briefly discuss the key ideas and the cutting edge advances in the quest for visual intelligences in computers. I will particularly focus on the latest work developed in my lab for both image and video understanding, powered by big data and the deep learning (a.k.a. neural network) architecture. Fei-Fei Li, Chief Scientist, AI/ML, Google Cloud, Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University Director, Artificial Intelligence Lab
Fei-Fei Li came to the U.S. from China at 16 with a love for science and she never looked back. Educated at Princeton and Caltech, her early work in robotics revolutionized machine learning and AI. Her focus on inclusion in tech careers and diversity in what we teach machines suggests that tomorrow’s robots won’t be sexist.
Stanford professor, Fei-Fei Li, discusses her work teaching computers to “see” images and to understand them as humans do in her eDay 2012 presentation “Computers that See” at Stanford Engineering.
Teaching Computers to See Dr. Fei-Fei Li is currently chief scientist of AI/ML at Google Cloud, associate professor in the computer science department at Stanford, and the director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Stanford Vision Lab.

We have security cameras everywhere, but they still can’t alert us when a child is drowning, says Fei-Fei Li, associate professor of computer science at Stanford. While humans have used vision to make better sense of the world for millions of years, our machines and computers are still in the dark ages. At “The Future of Artificial Intelligence” partner event of the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit, she explains that the daunting task ahead of us is to develop artificial intelligence algorithms to allow our computers to make smarter use of content in images and videos.
