AI, crowdsourcing combine to close 'analogy gap'


AI, crowdsourcing combine to close 'analogy gap' August 10, 2017 Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem devised a method enabling computers to mine databases of patents, inventions and research papers, identifying ideas that can be repurposed to solve new problems or create new products. Specifically, they developed a way for computers to find analogies—comparisons between sometimes disparate methods and problems that highlight underlying similarities.
