AI with Human-Like Ability to Learn from Language

Posted by Peter Rudin on 10. November 2023 in News

AI researchers have fought for nearly 35 years as to whether artificial neural networks (ANNs) could ever be a plausible model of human cognition.

A team from New York University has created a new AI model that mimics human’s ability to generalize language learning, fine-tuned to human reactions.

To make the neural net human-like, the researchers trained it to reproduce the patterns of errors they observed in humans’ test results, matching words with colors, for example.

Much like a child gets practice when learning their native language, the new model improves its skills through a series of repetitive learning tasks, reducing the volume of data required to train today’s ANNs.
