Professor Vasant Dhar is interviewed about the evolution of machine learning
— May 15, 2017
Excerpt from Crain's New York -- "'Previously these systems had to be programmed, and they did one task and they did what they were programmed to do,' Dhar explained. 'Now you've got machines that are capable of learning on their own. They can learn how to learn, and therefore they can displace humans in pretty large numbers.'"
