Algorithms That Learn with Less Data Could Expand AI’s Power

Algorithms That Learn with Less Data Could Expand AI’s Power Geometric Intelligence says its learning algorithms can pick up new skills faster than those behind the recent flurry of investment in AI. Last year Microsoft and Google both showed that their image-recognition algorithms had learned to best humans. They independently created software that could exceed the average human score on a standard test that challenges software to recognize images of a thousand different objects, from mosques to mosquitoes. But to get good enough to defeat humanity, each company’s software scrutinized 1.2 million labeled images. A child can learn to recognize a new kind of object or animal using only one example. Startup Geometric Intelligence said Monday that it has developed machine-learning software that is a much quicker study. CEO Gary Marcus…
