Google’s AI has taught itself to navigate London’s tube

Scientists at Google have created an artificial intelligence (AI) system that’s able to use basic reasoning to learn its way around the London underground system.It’s not the most difficult task – though we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t struggled with it ourselves – but what’s really impressive about this achievement is that it’s the first time external memory has been combined with the deep learning approach. Deep learning is the process by which a computer program learns to perform tasks independently without the need for instructions pre-programmed by a human. Recently deep learning has become a popular process to use for language translation, image recognition, and most notably it was the system that enabled a computer to beat Lee Sedol at Go. Deep learning is going deeperUntil now, though, it’s…
