The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has come up with some crazy ideas in the past, and its latest idea is to create computers that are always learning and adapting, much like humans.
However, this isn’t a far-fetched idea. Mobile devices, computers, and gadgets already have artificial intelligence features, with notable examples being Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Amazon’s Alexa.
But these devices can only learn and draw conclusions within the scope of information pre-programmed into systems. Existing machine-learning techniques don’t allow computers to think outside the box, so to speak, or think dynamically based on the situations and circumstances.
