Here’s your stop: Google DeepMind’s new AI can help you navigate the subway system

Humans take reasoning for granted, but logic isn’t always self-evident to machines, which have to be hard-coded to make the connections that can support basic deductions.Google’s DeepMind is looking to change that. The London-based artificial intelligence company has developed a system that performs relatively simple tasks in a sophisticated — and increasingly human — way, reports the Guardian.While plenty of programs can guide you through the subway, DeepMind’s differential neural network is one of the first systems to use external memory and deep learning to train itself autonomously, without the need for hard-coded instructions.[embedded content]Deep learning has become the go-to method for machine learning over the past few years, achieving unprecedented success in tasks like image and speech recognition. A DeepMind-developed program called AlphaGo used deep learning to defeat one of…
