MIT creates an AI machine that will learn language the way kids do

Children learn language by observing the things around them and connecting the dots between what they are seeing and hearing. By learning language like this, they are able to establish a language’s word order, such as where subjects and verbs belong in a sentence. In machine learning, languages are learned by training systems on sentences … continue reading
