Cross Labs' Senior Researcher Nicholas Guttenberg

Cross Labs Senior Researcher, Nicholas Guttenberg, recently sat down with Lionbridge's Hengtee Lim, to talk about meta learning and designing algorithms that develop the ability to perform new tasks.

When asked to define meta learning, Nicholas said “Meta learning is zooming out [from traditional machine learning] and saying, ‘instead of the system simply learning a task, [a meta learning system] is going to treat the task as data to learn to deal with new tasks that come in.’ In this sense, meta learning is the process of learning how to learn.”
