360 Degree AI Agent View

Intriguing idea.   Many applications to maximize information.  Although also likely a distraction as well. Like the idea of an 'Agent' being beyond a person with that role, but also any kind of information gathering system, human or not.

Glimpses' Give AI Agent 360-Degree View   in Futurity.org   By Marc Airhart

University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can take a few quick glimpses of an area and infer its whole environment. The researchers used deep learning to train the AI agent on thousands of 360-degree images of different environments. When presented with a scene it has never seen before, the system uses its experience to choose a few glimpses that together add up to less than 20% of the full scene. Based on these glimpses, the agent infers what it would have seen if it had looked in all the other directions, reconstructing a full 360-degree image of its surroundings. Said UT Austin researcher Santhosh Ramakrishnan, "Using extra information that's present purely during training helps the [primary] agent learn faster." .... '
