Researchers create an artificial intelligence model that learns, and draws, just like you

Pretend you’ve never seen a pineapple. Now imagine somebody shows you a pineapple.After seeing just one, it would be very easy for you to identify a pineapple in a bowl of other fruits, draw something that kind of looks like a pineapple, tell the difference between its leaves and its body, or sketch something inspired by a pineapple but slightly different.These tasks are so easy for humans that we don’t notice performing them: generalizing from a single example is a basic fact of cognition. But despite incredible leaps in artificial intelligence in recent years, machines have not been able to achieve such “one-shot” learning.A trio of scientists from New York University, the University of Toronto and MIT has created a computer model that not only succeeds on these tasks, but…
