Thad Starner's Plan to Develop AI That Understands Our Daily Activities

Gathering patterns of data that describe humans doing different tasks has more potential than just helping us work more efficiently. Thad Starner at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta wants to use the data from wearables to train artificial intelligences. By digesting the data generated by wearables on millions of humans doing simple tasks, robots and AI can get a better understanding of our lives, and that might let them learn to open doors and climb stairs as well as we do.
