Artificial neural networks learn to use human language

‘The BNA is the organisation that brings together people from different disciplines who wouldn’t otherwise talk to each other.’Professor Dame Uta Frith, UCL – winner of the BNA’s ‘Outstanding Contribution to Neuroscience Award’, 2013. 16 Nov 2015 – Scientists have tried for decades to design software that can make sense of human language. Now, Artificial Intelligence researchers from the UK and Italy have created a simulated brain and are teaching it how to talk. The artifical brain has been named ANNABELL, which stands for Artificial Neural Network with Adaptive Behavior Exploited for Language Learning.   ANNABEL is being used to try and work out how our brain developed the ability to perform complex functions, like those needed for language and reasoning.
