How does a computer know what a car looks like? How does it know sheep are white? Can a computer learn all these just by browsing images on the Internet? We believe so!

NEIL (Never Ending Image Learner) is a computer program that runs 24 hours per day and 7 days per week to automatically extract visual knowledge from Internet data. It is an effort to build the world’s largest visual knowledge base with minimum human labeling effort – one that would be useful to many computer vision and AI efforts.
