At Facebook everyday hundreds of millions of users interact with billions of visual contents. By understanding what's in an image, our systems can help connect users with the things that matter most to them. To improve our recognition system, I will talk about two main research challenges: how we train models at the scale of billions, and how we improve the reliability of the model prediction. Since current models are typically trained on data that are individually labeled by human annotators, scaling up to billions is non-trivial. We solve the challenge by training image recognition networks on large sets of public images with user-supplied hashtags as labels. By leveraging weakly supervised pretraining, our best model achieved a record-high 85.4% accuracy on ImageNet dataset.
