Data Science Machine could replace the human’s intuition

Home Science Data Science Machine may replace the human’s intuition Terry R. NixonOct 17, 2015Science0 2 MIT researchers have designed a big-data analysis system which aims to replace human intuition in the search for buried patterns. To examine the first prototype of their system, they registered it in three data science competitions, where they contested against human teams to detect predictive patterns in unaccustomed arrays of data. Computers are great at crunching numbers and figures compared to humans – supercomputers even more so, but the thing is, can they choose the most optimal path in the first place? That is the tricky bit – a computer will have to sift through even the most ridiculous of possibilities, as long as it is one, while humans are a whole lot more…
