Summary… * Machine-Made
Machine learning systems have been around since the 1950s, so why are we suddenly seeing breakthroughs in so many diverse areas?
Ninety percent of the digital data in the world today has been created in the past two years alone.
With the burgeoning internet of things (IoT) promising to connect billions of new devices and their data streams, it’s a sure bet we’ll have far more digital data to work with in the coming decade.
The algorithms and approaches that now dominate the discipline — such as deep supervised learning and reinforcement learning — share a vital basic property: Their results improve as the amount of training data they’re given increases.
Perhaps even more important is the potential of cloud-based #AI and robotics to accelerate learning and diffusion.
