AI breakthrough: How machines are starting to learn like humans

Remember that brainiac kid in class, the one who understood what the teacher was trying to explain after seeing just a few examples on the board?That is exactly what researchers have been shooting for, as they have developed an algorithm to help computers grasp concepts more quickly and be able to use them more creatively. Researchers from New York University, the University of Toronto and the Massachusetts Institute studied how humans learn quickly with a view toward helping people and machines alike.”There’s all sorts of things that people can do with concepts that computers haven’t been able to do,” says Brenden Lake, a fellow at New York University and lead author of the study published Friday in Science Magazine. “We wanted to better understand human learning from a computational perspective.”Humans,…
