Berkeley Lab: With Little Training, Machine-Learning Algorithms Can Uncover Hidden Scientific Knowledge

Berkeley Lab: With Little Training, Machine-Learning Algorithms Can Uncover Hidden Scientific Knowledge. “Sure, computers can be used to play grandmaster-level chess, but can they make scientific discoveries? Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have shown that an algorithm with no training in materials science can scan the text of millions of papers and uncover new scientific knowledge.”
