Machine Learning Made to Mimic Humans

Category: Science & TechnologyPosted: December 14, 2015 08:17AMAuthor: Guest_Jim_* While real artificial intelligence has not reached the heights predicted by science fiction yet, the fact is that it has existed for decades. Continually researchers have been working to improve upon machine learning methods, with the ultimate goal of matching the capabilities of the human mind. Now researchers at New York University have successfully taught a computer to recognize and draw symbols similarly to the way humans do. From a young age, humans are able to learn simple visual concepts, like characters to a language, with just a few examples, but it can take thousands of examples before a computer gets it right. To cut down on that number, the researchers developed a Bayesian Program Learning (BPL) framework. It works by…
