Newly developed algorithm easily captures human learning abilities

A new algorithm has been developed that will allow computers to recognize and draw simple visual concepts that are almost similar to the ones created by humans. The research paper published in the journal Science has unveiled that this algorithm will significantly reduce the time taken by computers to grasp new concepts and their application would also expand to more creative tasks. Study’s lead author Brenden Lake from New York University 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 for other machine learning tasks”. The researchers affirmed that when humans are shown a new task, they need a few examples to under the same. But machines are now…
