"Telefonica researchers may have found a solution for a problem that plagues algorithms," reports Thomas Macaulay in techworld. "People who suffer from memory loss could find kindred spirits in machines who suffer from a condition known as 'catastrophic forgetting'.

The affliction is caused when neural networks are trained to complete new tasks.

These systems learn by analysing training data that helps them interpret future information, whether they're facial recognition software scanning profile photos to learn how to detect humans in a video, or self-driving cars studying obstacles on the road to understand what they need to avoid..."
