Smarter Models, Smarter Choices

Oct 19, 2020

UD’s Vlachos and Lansford develop high confidence approach for artifical intelligence-based models. They call it artificial intelligence — not because the intelligence is somehow fake. It’s real intelligence, but it’s still made by humans. That means AI — a power tool that can add speed, efficiency, insight and accuracy to a researcher’s work — has many limitations.
