MIT System Beats Humans in Big-Data Analysis

New system is designed to eliminate human element in data analysis Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a new system which can outperform even some of the smartest people in the world. The system, named ‘Data Science Machine, is a breakthrough in artificial intelligence, which aims to take human element out of data analysis. Big-data analysis generally requires human intuition for searching patterns and choosing which features of data need to be analyzed but the new system can do both without human involvement, in fact, better than humans themselves. To test its ability, MIT researchers enrolled the system in three science data competitions, where it made 94, 96 and 87 percent accurate predictions, finishing ahead of 615 out of 906 human teams.…
