NYU teaches machines to learn like humans

Scientists at New York University work with machines that’ll soon learn like humans, dramatically shortening the time it takes for a robot to adapt. Creativity is what they’re teaching, and the robot apocalypse is nearly upon us. Brenden Lake, the paper’s lead author and Moore-Sloan Data Science Fellow at New York University, suggests that “this work points to promising methods to narrow the gap for other machine learning tasks.” Machine Learning you’ve likely heard of before. Even if you haven’t, you likely use it every day. When you search for something in Google, Google takes what you’ve searched for and enters it in to its memory of what you’ve searched for in the past.
