However, firms struggling to source data science skills may soon be able to turn to machine learning. While deep learning and automated processing is today used to automatically tell who and what is in an image, or to pluck answers to questions from a piece of text, that same automation has generally not been applied to data science. Now researchers at MIT have devised what they call the Data Science Machine – a system that can compete with some of the best data scientists in the world and in a fraction of time. The Data Science Machine performs the intuition part of big…
