Wolfram Language Artificial Intelligence: The Image Identification Project—Stephen Wolfram Blog

Final paragraphs from a Stephen Wolfram post on his company's new Image Identification Project

"But to me the greater significance is what can now be done by integrating things like ImageIdentify into the whole symbolic structure of the Wolfram Language. What ImageIdentify does is something humans learn to do in each generation. But symbolic language gives us the opportunity to represent shared intellectual achievements across all of human history. And making all these things computational is, I believe, something of monumental significance, that I am only just beginning to understand.
But for today, I hope you will enjoy the Wolfram Language Image Identification Project. Think of it as a celebration of where artificial intelligence has reached. Think of it as an intellectual recreation that helps build intuition for what artificial intelligence is like. But don’t forget the part that I think is most exciting: it’s also practical technology, that you can use here and now in the Wolfram Language, and deploy wherever you want."
