Improving AI: Computer scientists detect weaknesses in machine learning algorithms

Machine learning is the biggest revolution in computer science in decades. Thanks to learning algorithms, computers can perform sensational feats even on abstract tasks. But, like humans, computers make mistakes in the process – and understanding why a machine learning algorithm makes certain errors is one of the key challenges of modern computer science. This is where Michael Hedderich and Jonas Fischer come in with their research. They have developed software that can detect weaknesses in highly complex machine learning algorithms and thus help to correct them.
