Artificial Intelligence Outperforms Human Data Scientists

Traditionally computers are great at crunching numbers, but lousy at understanding what they mean. But a team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology thinks it’s cracking that problem.Traditionally computers are great at crunching numbers, but lousy at understanding what they mean. But a team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology thinks it’s cracking that problem.A new paper, to be presented at next week’s IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics, details the evolution of the university’s Data Science Machine – a sort-of AI system that is adept at spotting trends and patterns in large chunks of data.MIT ran the machine as a ringer in three human data science tournaments and had considerable success. Out of 906 human teams in the competition to find patterns…
