How we can learn from AI - and it can learn from us

"Study like a machine". Formerly a battle cry to get all the exam material into your head at the last minute, this phrase now has a new meaning. Thanks to artificial intelligence, we not only learn how to learn, but also by and from machines. And it also works the other way around. Find out how in our March trend news.

AI learns about the world like a toddler

Researchers at New York University have conducted an experiment to find out how infant language learning can be imitated with AI tools. They trained an AI system using headcam video recordings of a child from the age of six months until its second birthday. After the recordings were completed, the researchers trained a multimodal neural network using the collected data. After evaluation and comparison with the results of infants, the results suggest that infant word learning can be imitated using neural networks.
