Learning to read the London Underground map is a rite of passage for any new Londoner, but DeepMind – Google’s deep learning AI with an interest in healthcare and card games – has joined the ranks of those that know the fastest way to get from Acton Town to Wapping. That may not sound hugely impressive, but the manner in which it has learned to read the Tube map is very interesting for the future of artificial intelligence, as it used basic reasoning and memory to conquer the commute.
