Maybe MNIST digits is not a good example — after all, we all have seen a lot of them in school, maybe enough for a huge dataset. Let’s get back to our leopard print sofa. Have you seen a lot of leopards in your life? Maybe, but I’m almost sure that you’ve seen “faces” or “computers” or “hands” a lot more often. Have you actually seen such a sofa before — even once? Can’t be one hundred percent confident for myself, but I think I have not. And nevertheless, despite this total lack of visual experience, I don’t consider the image above a spotty cat in a slightest bit.

And now for the part I’ve purposely left out: black spotty print pattern. It’s not completely random, as you might think it is — rather, black spots are combined into small groups called “rosettes”. You can see that jaguar rosettes are large, distinctive and contain a small black spot inside, while leopard rosettes are significantly smaller. As for the cheetah, its print doesn’t contain any, just a scatter of pure black spots.

Playing on the power of pairs (two pillows, two chairs) ups the visual impact of leopard while lending it an orderly, even traditional feel, a clever way to tame any out-of-the-box pattern. And though leopard print itself seems like an inherently rule-breaking decorating choice, it does abide by a few rules, number one being that it always (yes, always) looks killer paired with chic touches of black and metal.

Consider a leopard-print pillow your starter leopard. It lets you walk (or maybe tiptoe) on the wild side without the major buying commitment that a larger piece demands. Many top designers even consider it a neutral, thanks to those brown and black tones, which means that it works in visually quiet rooms just as well as in over-the-top spaces.

Maybe not all wrong, and of course, convolutional networks are extremely useful things, but think about it: sometimes it almost looks like we’re already there. We’re using huge datasets like ImageNet, organize competitions and challenges, where we, for example, have decreased MNIST recognition error rate from 0.87 to 0.23 (in three years) — considering that no one really knows what error rate a human brain can achieve. There’s a lot of talk about GPU implementations — like it’s just a matter of computational power now, and the theory is all fine. It’s not. And the problem won’t be solved by collecting even larger datasets and using more GPUs, because leopard print sofas are inevitable. There always going to be an anomaly; lots of them, actually, considering all the things painted in different patterns. Something has to change. Good recognition algorithms have to understand the structure of the image and to be able to find its elements like paws or face or tail, despite the issues of projection and occlusion.

Now, here’s a guess. Imagine a simple supervised classifier, without going into model specifics, that accepts a bunch of labeled images and tries to extract some inner structure (a set of features) from that dataset to use for recognition. During the learning process, a classifier adjust its parameters using prediction/recognition error, and here’s when dataset size and structure matter. For example, if a dataset contains 99 leopards and only one sofa, the simplest rule that tells a classifier to always output “leopard” will result in 1% recognition error while staying not intelligent at all.

And that seems to be exactly the case, both for our own visual experience and for ImageNet dataset. Leopard sofas are rare things. There simply aren’t enough of them to make difference for a classifier; and black spot texture makes a very distinctive pattern that is otherwise specific to a leopard category. Moreover, being faced with different classes of big spotted cats, a classifier can benefit from using these texture patterns, since they provide simple distinguishing features (compared with the others like the size of the jaw). So, our algorithm works just like it’s supposed to. Different spots make different features, there’s little confusion with other categories and sofa example is just an anomaly. Adding enough sofas to the dataset will surely help (and then the size of the jaw will matter more, I guess), so there’s no problem at all, it’s just how learning works.
