Study: Even smartest AI models don’t match human visual processing

York University study highlights how deep-network models take potentially dangerous ‘shortcuts’ in solving complex recognition tasks TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2022 –  Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) don’t see objects the way humans do – using configural shape perception – and that could be dangerous in real-world AI applications, says Professor James Elder, co-author of a […]
