Researchers devise AI that allows machines to learn just as fast as humans

Computers can compute a lot faster than humans, but they’re pretty dumb when it comes to learning. In fact, machine learning itself is only beginning to take off, i.e. real results showing up. A team from New York University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology are now leveling the field, though. They’ve devised an algorithm that allows computers to recognize patterns a lot faster and with much less information at their disposal than previously.

That’s pretty creepy, but also effective. Impressive as it is, however, it took…
