AI Software Learns to Make AI Software | Artificial intelligence

Progress in artificial causes some people to worry that will take jobs such as driving trucks away from humans. Now leading researchers are finding that they can make that can learn to do one of the trickiest parts of their own jobs—the task of designing machine-learning .

In one experiment, researchers at the Google Brain artificial intelligence research group had software design a machine-learning system to take a test used to benchmark software that processes language. What it came up with surpassed previously published results from software designed by humans.

In recent months several other groups have also reported progress on getting learning software to make learning software. They include researchers at the nonprofit research institute OpenAI (which was cofounded by Elon Musk), MIT, the University of California, Berkeley, and Google’s other artificial intelligence research group, DeepMind.

If self-starting AI techniques become practical, they could increase the pace at which machine-learning software is implemented across the economy. Companies must currently pay a premium for machine-learning experts, who are in short supply.
