Do You Want Your Computer To Learn From You?

from the I-do dept

Business Week is running an interview with a researcher working on cognitive machines that learn from what you do, and better anticipate things. For example, if you’re always saving a document in a certain format, shouldn’t the computer know to use that as the default? Then, as it gets more advanced, you add in some pattern recognition techniques and things get fancier. For example, if you get an email from someone, but you’re not sure if you know who they are – the system could tell you that you worked on a project together a while back. Basically, it’s a super executive assistant with a better memory.
