MIT and IBM team up to create AI that sees, hears, and gets it – like humans

It’s easy to take for granted the complex mental tasks human beings are constantly performing.When we watch a baseball game, we can easily distinguish the pitcher from the mound he stands on, describe how he winds up before he flings the ball towards the plate, and even predict if the next pitch will be a hanging curveball or 100-mph fastball.There isn’t yet a machine that can comprehend such tasks that are simple to us.IBM and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge hope to change that. The two organizations announced a partnership Tuesday for machines to see, hear, and interpret like humans do. The IBM-MIT Laboratory for Brain-inspired Multimedia Machine Comprehension, BM3C, for short, is a multi-year collaboration, said IBM in a news release.   The “brain-inspired” laboratory is just…
