Quote:
Bruce Draper, an associate professor, and his team consisting of Ross Beveridge, a computer science professor, and Michael Kirby and Chris Peterson, professors in the Department of Mathematics at a Colarado State University, are expected to spend the next two years trying to teach computers to take pictures and describe those pictures in words.




The team received a $625,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for this purpose.
