Researchers Have Found A New Way To Get Machines To Learn Faster

An international team of data scientists is proud to announce the very latest in machine learning: they’ve built a program that learns… programs. That may not sound impressive at first blush, but making a machine that can learn based on a single example is something that’s been extremely hard to do in the world of artificial intelligence. Machines don’t learn like humans—not as fast, and not as well. And even with this research, they still can’t. While Facebook has programs that can recognize almost any face, and “deep speech” programs can recognize the speech in almost any sound, those well-learned machine tasks took a long time and many examples to perfect. Humans, on the other hand, are very good at learning from a single example: “this is a cat” or…
