Report: Machine Learning Driving AI

(Lightspring/Shutterstock.com) Artificial intelligence research continues to accelerate as human and machines collaborate to solve more complex problems. A new survey by the National Academy of Science identifies the frontiers of AI research that include “augmented cognition” along with “integrative” AI. In a workshop report on IT innovation just released by the National Academy’s science, engineering and medicine branches, a section on “Developing Smart Machines” describes ongoing AI research efforts along with machine learning, a discipline some experts consider a subfield of AI. “Machine learning is what lets computers discover patterns within data and then use those patterns to make useful, and ideally correct, predictions,” the report states. The authors quotes Jaime Carbonell, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, as noting” “Machine learning essentially is the engine that…
