This semester, I took an introductory course to Machine Learning. I learned about id3, version space learning, neural networks, GAs, etc. And I had to some homework using several of those techniques.
One day, spending my time browsing the internet I have found this web site about genetic programming. In fact, the following quote got my attention:
“Getting machines to produce human-like results is the very reason for the existence of the ﬁelds of artiﬁcial intelligence and machine learning. However, it has always been very diﬃcult to assess how much progress these ﬁelds have made towards their ultimate goal. Alan Turing understood that in order to avoid human biases when assessing machine intelligence, machine behaviour must be evaluated objectively. This led him to propose an imitation game, now known as the Turing test (Turing, 1950). Unfortunately, the Turing test is not usable in practice, and so, there is a need for more workable objective tests of machine intelligence.” Read the rest of this entry »
