Can computers be taught to learn more like humans do?

A team of scientists has developed an algorithm that captures human learning abilities, enabling computers to recognize and draw simple visual concepts that are mostly indistinguishable from those created by humans.

The work by researchers at MIT, New York University, and the University of Toronto, which appears in the latest issue of the journal Science, marks a significant advance in the field — one that dramatically shortens the time it takes computers to “learn” new concepts and broadens their application to more creative tasks, according to the researchers.

“Our results show that by reverse-engineering how people think about a problem, we can develop better algorithms,” explains Brenden Lake, a Moore-Sloan Data Science Fellow at New York University and the paper’s lead author. “Moreover, this work points to promising methods to narrow the gap for other machine-learning task

There's a lot of work being done in this area, and they're making a lot of progress.
The video was really interesting.


In my opinion, this will also be the path to self awareness.
I think Elon Musk agrees, and he's being proactive by developing AI himself.
He understands the threat, and he also knows somewhere, at sometime, AI self awareness will happen.

If that's the case, your only practical option is to be involved and to try to put a leash on the beast.
Hoping that laws will be enough, isn't enough.
You have to get into the trenches.
