Is Human Intuition Replicable? MIT Researchers Test ‘Data Science Machine’ With Positive Results

MIT researchers have developed a system that may one day replace human intuition. According to Nature Word Report, the system locates predictive patterns hidden in unfamiliar data sets in a fraction of the time it would a human being to accomplish the same task. The so-called “Data Science Machine,” competed against human teams in three data science competitions and outperformed them in every one. As reported in Eurka Alert, Max Kanter, a researcher whose MIT master’s thesis in computer science formed the basis of the Data Science Machine, sees his work as a supplement to mental strategies, saying, “We view the Data Science Machine as a natural complement to human intelligence.” Share This Story “There’s so much data out there to be analyzed. And right now it’s just sitting there…
