(Tech Xplore)—Researchers exploring AI systems are making news and familiarizing the public with terms like reinforcement learning and machine learning. Recent headlines are still making some heads turn in surprise. AI software is “learning” how to replicate itself and to build its own AI child.
As such, Google’s AI created its child AI using reinforcement learning, entirely automated.
Meet ‘NASNet.’ Google researchers refer to it as a novel architecture.
Vaughn Highfield in Alphr noted this child AI is capable of a specific task – image recognition. The child AI was tasked with recognizing objects in a video, real time.
Futurism expanded on what took place. “AutoML acts as a controller neural network that develops a child AI network for a specific task. For this particular child AI, which the researchers called NASNet, the task was recognizing objects—people, cars, traffic lights, handbags, backpacks, etc.—in a …
