This is the single most important key to making our technologies smarter

m.a.r.c. / flickr Technology is all about progress: We build tools to make life easier and learn how to improve those tools over time. But in the past couple of decades, technology has improved dramatically thanks to the internet and the proliferation of internet-enabled devices, which have allowed us to create and build upon ideas at an incredible clip. Now, the next big frontier is to teach our technologies to learn and improve on their own. This concept is called “machine learning,” and it’s at the heart of most artificial intelligence systems you see. Self-driving technology is one notable example of machine learning. The goal there is for cars to be autonomous: We want them to drive, navigate, and react like a human can — even better, in fact —…
