Amazon and SenseTime detail OmniSource, a framework that scrapes web videos to train AI

Researchers at AI startup SenseTime, Amazon, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong say they’ve developed a new framework for leveraging web data OmniSource that notches records in the video recognition domain. By overcoming barriers between data formats like images, short videos, and long untrimmed videos and adopting good practices like data balancing, it’s ostensibly able to classify videos more accurately than state-of-the-art models while using up to 100 times less data.

In the future, OmniSource could be applied to security cameras within private and public places. Or it could inform the design of the moderation algorithms used on networks like Facebook.
