New Algorithm Mimics Human Learning Abilities

A team of researchers from the New York University has developed an algorithm which has the ability to mimic the learning abilities of humans. This unique algorithm can view and draw concepts indistinguishable from humans. According to study authors, their findings mark a significant development in the field that has always focused on designing outstanding robots and algorithms that can easily learn and adapt things very much like humans. The researchers developed a ‘Bayesian Program Learning’ (BPL) framework that can shorten the learning process and make robot learning more similar to that of humans. Brenden Lake, the paper’s lead author, said, “Our results show that by reverse engineering how people think about a problem, we can develop better algorithms. Moreover, this work points to promising methods to narrow the gap…
