Artificial Intelligence Discovery Helping Computers Do Tasks That Humans Do

Scientists have achieved a stunning new breakthrough in the world of artificial intelligence — whether that’s a good thing for humanity is anyone’s guess at this point. Researchers have been trying to help computers learn on their own much like we humans do, and they think they may have succeeded in new research published this week, according to a PC World report. This team of researchers created the Bayesian Program Learning framework and have been using it to teach computers to both identify and reproduce handwritten characters using just one example. The BPL framework allows the researchers to explain the data provided to the algorithm, which is different from standard pattern recognition algorithms that base concepts on how pixels are configured.This algorithm focuses more on representing concepts, allowing the computer…
