New Artificial Intelligence Software Learns as Fast as Humans

A team of international data scientists have developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that imitates the way human brain learns new information. The study, published in the Journal Science on Thursday, is being described as an important step in closing the vast gap between humans and machines when it comes to generalized intelligence. For a narrow set of vision-related tasks, the software reportedly surpassed human capabilities. According to The New York Times, the team consisting of researchers from New York University, MIT and the University of Toronto reported a new type of one-shot machine learning, in which an artificial intelligence algorithm outperformed a group of people in identifying handwritten characters based on a single example. The findings are noteworthy because such systems are increasingly becoming common-place in everyday life, such as…
