  • AI is not a magic method but statistical method

    Michael Funk et al. introduced Marvelous models (1). Artificial intelligence (AI) is not a magic method but statistical method. GPU computing with open source software allows us to execute massively parallel machine learning (2). Now, it is possible for AI to acquire/learn expert’s experiences over 100 years within several weeks (3). Acquired experiences can be also simultaneously shared by AI machines while they cannot be simultaneously shared by humans. Human must sleep and rest while AI can function 24 hours a day without any rest. A variety of recognitions using sensors can be realized in AI like human. There is no labor dispute between an employer and its employees (AI machines).
