A ‘memory foam’ approach to machine learning could reboot artificial intelligence

Share This article Many of us have been waiting for the rise of the machines ever since James Cameron’s action epic The Terminator stunned audiences with its apocalyptic visions of an Arnold-shaped artificial intelligence. The the truth is AI would need a sea change to even begin approaching the kind of crafty mechanical guile exhibited by the terminators in the movie. Though few experts have been willing to speculate about when such a singularity might occur, a recent publication titled “A ‘memory foam’ approach to unsupervised learning” suggests it could be sooner than most believe. Great strides have been made in recent expert systems that have caused a stir in artificial intelligence of late, such as Google’s speech recognition algorithm and the Netflix recommendation system. But all of these systems are based on a model…
