MIT’s AI machine goals to erase humans from big-data analysis

Freshly designed computer system can now find hidden patterns is huge chunks of data faster than human teams can, MIT’s Data Science Machine may soon replace humans in big data analysis. Big data analysis is essential to our information age as data pile up and too few people can properly analyze them and find hidden algorithms that have some kind of predictive power. Until now, finding those algorithms required something that only humans had – intuition. But the Massachusetts Institute of Technology team hope that their machine may soon make human intuition obsolete. The team already tested their new system in three separate competitions. About 900 human teams took part and the MIT’s Data Science Machine outperformed 615 teams. In the first two competitions, the forecasts made by the system…
