Humans May Soon Become Obsolete in Big Data Analysis

Since a team of computer scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) were able to design a system that can outperform human intelligence when looking for hidden patterns in big chunks of data, humans may soon become obsolete in big data analysis. Until now, data analysis and data mining were processes that required the intervention of human element to be successful. Looking for relevant patterns in heaps of unfamiliar data required human intuition in order to provide positive results. But MIT scientists claim that their “Data Science Machine” is faster and often more reliable than humans when it comes to analyzing big data and extracting patterns that may have some type of predictive power. The MIT team said that their machine participated in three competitions against humans and it…
