The Next Stage of Machine Learning: Teach Robots to Think Like Humans

by Stefani Cox The human brain is a never-ending source of wonder. In recent years, scientists and engineers have made major progress in figuring out how to replicate key facets of human thinking in machines, thus contributing to a better understanding of the mind. But despite years of research, many processes remain a mystery… at least for now. A recent experiment from MIT demonstrates the capabilities of machine learning. Researchers have figured out how to make a machine be able to identify certain classes of objects (in this case, handwritten characters) after only having seen a couple examples. By giving the computer information about how the characters were created, the machine was then able to understand the components that make up writing and replicate them itself. But what about machines being able…
