Microsoft Maluuba teaches management 101 to machines in its first paper since being acquired

In mid-January, the ongoing race for AI put Montreal-based Maluuba on our radar. Microsoft acquired the startup and its team of researchers to build better machine intelligence tools for analyzing unstructured text to enable more natural human computer interaction think bots that can actually respond with reasonable intelligence to a text you send. The team dropped its first paper since being acquiredand it sheds light on the groups priorities. The paper outlines a method for multi-advisor reinforcement learning that breaks problems down to besimpler and more easily computable.In oversimplified terms,…
