New program by Google DeepMind uses advanced AI to navigate London Underground

A new program created by scientists at Google DeepMind uses deep learning and an external memory to navigate the London Underground system. Although the task itself can be accomplished by a number of much simpler smartphone apps, the method used is considered to mark a breakthrough that will lead to new capabilities.In the deep learning approach, an AI agent learns to accomplish tasks on its own, instead of being pre-programmed for each specific task by a human. Professor Geoff Hinton, now employed at Google, is considered to be the father of the deep learning method. He commented that the new program opens the door for a range of more complex applications for deep learning AI than ever thought possible. “Until very recently, it was far from obvious how deep learning…
