Intel putting research into machines that learn
"Machine learning is such a huge opportunity," Justin Rattner, Intel's chief technology officer, told reporters in Tel Aviv.
New research, to be carried out by the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence with specialists from the Technion in Haifa and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is aimed at enabling new applications, such as small, wearable computers that can enhance daily life. Such devices, which continually record what the user is doing, will be available by 2014 or 2015. Looking further, within five years all of the human senses will be in computers and in 10 years we will have more transistors on one chip than neurons in the human brain," said Moody Eden, president of Intel Israel. Not sure I really like this.
