It helps them not to be overloaded.
Artificial intelligence is trained continuously, and this may cause instability in his work. But the problem is solved if to introduce a system of relaxation, similar to sleep cycles in people, writes “the Knife”.
The experiment was conducted with one of algorithms the Los Alamos laboratory. This neural network had led to a problem after long periods of training without supervision, and scientists have exposed her to the States, similar to the waves that the human brain experiences during sleep.
“It seems that we gave the algorithm the analogue of a peaceful night’s rest,” says Lizing Watkins, co-author of the study.
The decision to give the neural network to “sleep” was one of the last experiments before the researchers used different types of noises and applied other approaches. But the rest gave the best result, artificial intelligence has remained stable and wasn’t hallucinating.
