MIT system outperforms human intution with algorithms

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 17 (UPI) — The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is testing a new computer system aimed at finding patterns in data sets faster than human beings. Researchers at MIT designed a Data Science Machine that searches for patterns in data sets, such as a database of promotional sale dates and weekly profits. While computers can do many things faster than humans, human input is still required to choose what to look for in a large data set — to find meaning in patterns, not just the patterns themselves. MIT researchers hope to automate that, too. In three competitions, the Data Science Machine competed against 906 human teams and outperformed 615. The teams worked on their predictive algorithms for months while the Machine was able to compute its predictions…
