Artificial Intelligence Hardware Could Now Include the Brain’s Secret to Life-Long Learning

Artificial Intelligence Hardware Could Now Include the Brain’s Secret to Life-Long Learning

The human brain adapts when it learns anything new. When artificial intelligence (AI) learns anything new, though, it has a tendency to forget what it already knows. As companies collect more data to improve how AI recognizes images, learns languages, and performs other complex tasks, a paper pub.....
