Scientists Develop Algorithm That Teach Machines To Learn Like Humans

By: Matt Dayo | contact@stgist.com December 12, 2015 @ 7:07 AM Scientists say they’ve developed an algorithm that can teach machines how to learn like humans. Artificial Intelligence researchers at the New York University, University of Toronto in Canada and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reported Thursday that they’ve developed an algorithm that captures the human-level learning abilities allowing machines to surpass humans for a narrow set of vision-related tasks. The New York Times reported Thursday that the scientific article published in the journal Science is “noteworthy” because machine-vision technology is becoming more common, from video games to roads courtesy of self-driving cars, e.g. Google self-driving car that can detect pedestrians. Brenden Lake, lead author of the research, explains in a press release that by “reverse engineering” how humans think about the problem — they can develop a better…
