Data Science Machine By MIT Trumps Humans In Data Analysis

It was your typical battle between man and machine as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  announced this past week that its Data Science Machine proved in a recent 906-team prediction-based data analysis competition that it was more accurate than 615 human teams. Though the Data Science Machine didn’t take top honors at the competition, it did mark a big victory for computer-based data analysis. According to results provided by EurekaAlert, the Data Science Machine performed very well in two of the three facets of the competition, notching 94-percent and 97 percent prediction accuracy scores. In the third facet of the competition, the computer scored a “more modest” 87 percent. While other human teams posted accuracy percentages both higher and lower than the Data Science Machine, competition organizers noticed one huge difference…
