‘Immensely powerful’ machine learning has potential to predict the future

Machine Learning has the potential to be an “immensely powerful” tool and could even be used to predict the future. That’s according to Professor Andrew Blake, founding director of the Alan Turing Institute for data science and a leading researcher in computer vision, who made the comments while speaking at the Royal Society’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems – Vision Challenges and Actions conference. Further reading When asked by an audience member if machine learning could be used to predict the future, Professor Blake said “the answer has to be yes”, and added that machine learning represents “a big industry”. Answering with what he described as his “Alan Turing Institute Hat” on – Blake has previously served as managing director of Microsoft Research Cambridge and was part of the team that…
