DARPA, the experimental research arm of the United States Department of Defense, is looking to create smart cameras that possess visual intelligence.

Their goal is to develop a system that can both recognize objects, and tell a story about them.

Wired reports:

State-of-the-art cameras can already recognize objects — the “nouns” of cognition. What Darpa wants is the verb: “To add the perceptual and cognitive underpinnings for recognizing and reasoning … enabling a more complete narrative of action in the visual experience.”

Darpa’s end goal is a “smart camera” that can report back on war-zone activity with the same detail a trained human operative could offer. Or, perhaps, replace those troublesome reporters?
