A New Type of AI Has Been Created Inspired by the Human Brain

I’ve been researching the key findings and data on AI for a few years. With that context, this post strikes me as one of the more important findings; yet, it was written in such a scientific, vanilla fashion that most people won’t stop to process the details.

“The new paper demonstrates how ultra-fast learning rates are surprisingly identical for networks that are large as well as small.

So ‘the disadvantage of the complicated brain’s learning scheme is actually an advantage,’ the researchers say.

“Just like DeepMind taught an AI to interpret its surroundings via Symbol-Concept Association Network, the team leading this DeepMind project is following a similar path.

This method of learning is almost exactly like how humans think and learn to understand the world around them.”


DeepMind is opening a huge new London headquarters in 2020

“DeepMind is a true London success story. This world-leading AI team has stuck closely and passionately to its London roots, understanding and utilising the talent, innovation, creative energy and knowledge that sits on its doorstep. This new announcement not only shows DeepMind’s ongoing commitment to London, but also represents a new era for this remarkable organisation as they take things to the next level,” says Laura Citron, chief executive of London & Partners. “London is the artificial intelligence capital of Europe, with the capital housing more than twice as many companies as its closest rivals, Paris and Berlin, combined.
