For years, researchers from MIT and Brown University have been developing an interactive system that lets users drag-and-drop and manipulate data on any touchscreen, including smartphones and interactive whiteboards. Now, they’ve included a tool that instantly and automatically generates machine-learning models to run prediction tasks on that data. Image: Melanie Gonick

System lets nonspecialists use machine-learning models to make predictions for medical research, sales, and more.

Researchers at MIT and Brown University created an interactive data system that "could give everyone AI superpowers," writes Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch. Known as ’Northstar,’ the system can instantly generate machine-learning models to use with existing data sets in order to generate useful predictions, explains Etherington.
