Computers could learn faster with new algorithm: New York University Research

Computers could learn faster with new algorithm: New York University Research

Researchers at the New York University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been working on an interesting project to improve machine learning. The algorithm captures our learning abilities and helps computers learn new concepts. The simple visual concepts drawn by computers with help of this algorithm are almost indistinguishable to those created by humans. The algorithm will reduce the time needed by a computer to learn a new concept and this will help increase application of computers in creative and many other fields.
