Scientists succeed in inventing a machine that ‘learns’ like the humans

Scientists have invented a machine that imitates the brain functions in humans that help them learn. According to a report from the researchers, the latest invention takes another step forward in artificial intelligence. The system as described in journal Science is a computer model which captures the unique ability of humans to learn new concepts from a singular example. Although the model is capable of only learning handwritten characters from the alphabets, the underlying approach could be broad based for applications using other symbol based systems such as dance moves and gestures as well as words of sign and spoken languages. The researcher went on to add that they were still distanced from building machines that were as smart as human kids, but for the first time, there is a…
