Fei-Fei Li ’99, along with Princeton colleagues, has built the world’s largest visual database in an effort to mimic the human vision system, according to a report by John Markoff in The New York Times.

“With more than 14 million labeled objects, from obsidian to orangutans to ocelots, the database has become a vital resource for computer vision researchers,” Markoff writes.

Kai Li, Paul M. Wythes ’55, P’86 and Marcia R. Wythes P’86 Professor of Computer Science at Princeton, is a collaborator. Fei-Fei Li, now an associate professor at Stanford, earned her undergraduate degree in physics from Princeton in 1999. She earned her PhD from Caltech in 1995 and was an assistant professor of computer science at Princeton from 2007 to 2009.
