Quote by the head of the laboratory: "Artificial intellect and machine learning are successful when we need to form skills that can't be easily formalized. Errors of such systems are inevitable. This is the price of robustness, universality, intuition in the same way that the famous «human factor» is. A recurring problem is: how to process these errors and correct them without radically re-training the system, without destroying existing skills and as fast as possible. We need to do this more efficient than human training. We are developing such a technology. Theoretical justification and testing research software is almost complete. Now we start testing a new technology on practical problems of real complexity".
