IBM, MIT form research lab to spur development of smarter AI

IBM and MIT announced a joint research partnership with the aim of creating artificial intelligence that understands audio and visual data the way people do. What’s Hot on ZDNet At a high level, IBM Research and MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences are forming the IBM-MIT Laboratory for Brain-inspired Multimedia Machine Comprehension’s (BM3C). There, researchers will work to develop cognitive computing systems that can overcome the technical challenges surrounding pattern recognition and predictions methods. As IBM explains, a human can watch a short video of an event and easily describe what is happening during the video and even predict the likelihood of subsequent events. For machines, this ability is currently impossible, IBM says. Once it is possible, however, advanced cognitive computing systems with machine vision capabilities could be used…
