The hybrid approach to true knowledge
Connections that computers make can only get better when they use a hybrid of both the top down approach of traditional Artificial Intelligence and the ocean-churning approach of machine learning
Over the last few weeks in this column, I have written some pieces on how the “cognitive" functions in Artificial Intelligence (AI) would be dead on arrival without correct, contextually labelled data. The first dealt with teaching AI machines common sense, which is a non-trivial undertaking. The second was a complex piece which dealt with how these data needed to be analysed with the use of deep science so that they can be used in the world of medical AI. Last week’s piece dwelled on how this labelling of data, from the mundane to the arduous, will create a large employment opportunity for humans in the Intelligent Age.
