Artificial Intelligence: Google’s DeepMind Creates Neural Network That Can ‘Logically Reason’ Its …

Artificial neural networks — systems patterned after the arrangement and operation of neurons in the human brain — excel at tasks that require pattern recognition, but are woefully limited when it comes to carrying out instructions that require basic logic and reasoning. This is a problem for scientists working toward the creation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems capable of performing complex tasks with minimal human supervision. In a step toward overcoming this hurdle, researchers at Google’s DeepMind — the company that developed the Go-playing computer program AlphaGo — announced earlier this week the creation of a neural network that can not only learn, but can also use data stored in its memory to “logically reason” and make inferences to answer questions. DeepMind’s new system — called a Differentiable Neural Computer (DNC) — combines…
