This AI learned to predict the future by watching loads of TV

Wednesday 22 June 2016 One difficulty faced by artificial intelligence is predicting what humans are going to do next. To help solve that problem, researched have trained an algorithm by making it binge-watch TV. ADVERTISEMENT Computer vision experts from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) made an algorithm watch 600 hours of TV shows including Ugly Betty, Scrubs, The Big Bang Theory, The Office (US) and more. In each of the clips, taken from YouTube, humans were performing tasks and interacting with each other.
