Watching TV Shows Taught An MIT Algorithm to Predict Human Behavior

Watching your favorite TV shows might be relaxing for you, but for a robot, it’s hard work. Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have discovered that they could teach artificially intelligent systems about human interactions – as well as how to predict them – by simply feeding them with TV shows and videos. MIT researchers have created a new algorithm that can predict human reactions based on six hundred hours of The Big Bang Theory, The Office, and other sitcoms. So far, the artificial intelligence system (AI) can not only identify kisses, high-fives, hugs, and handshakes but also recognize the moments leading up to these behaviors. After watching all those shows for training, the algorithm was showed a single frame of a brand new video and was requested…
