The Matrix is coming …
Remember how in the first Matrix, Trinity downloaded a program into her brain that taught her how to fly a helicopter? Well, they’ve done that already.
In 10 minutes, a computer algorithm developed by Stanford University scientists learned, and then flawlessly replicated, more than 20 years of radio-controlled helicopter expertise.
Ok, so it isn’t Trinity just yet, but like the four-minute mile, this breaks a psychological barrier. Now we know for a fact that computers can be made to learn; the future is now just a matter of time.Advertisements
