Researchers want to teach computers to learn like humans

"Cognitive learning is all about teaching computers to learn without having to explicitly program them," Rad said. "In this study, we're presenting an entirely new platform for machine learning to teach computers to learn the way we do."

To build the cloud-based platform, Rad and Beebe studied how education and understanding has evolved over the past five centuries. They wanted to gain a better picture of how computers could be taught to approach deductive reasoning.

Goal - Machine - Smarter - Rad - Experience

"Our goal here is to teach the machine to become smarter, so that it can help us. That's what they're here to do," Rad said. "So how do we become better? We learn from experience."

The UTSA researchers also studied how humans learn across their lifetimes. Children, for example, begin by identifying objects such as faces and toys, then move on from there to understand communication. This process helps their thought processes mature as they...
