Adaptive machine has potential application in a number of different fields, including medical imaging, computer vision, self-driving cars, and speech recognition.

Research has broad implications for health care, self-driving cars and more.

 

Imagine cruising down a highway in your self-driving car. Its operating system relies on algorithms based on data collected during dry driving conditions. But what happens when the car has to navigate through high winds, hard rain and street flooding?
