The Missing Link of Artificial Intelligence

The Missing Link of Artificial Intelligence We don’t know how to make software that learns without explicit instruction—but we need to if dreams of humanlike AI are to come true. In 2012 the world learned of a surprising research project inside Google’s secretive X lab. A giant simulation of three million neurons learned to recognize cats and people in pictures, without human help, just by looking at images taken from YouTube. The people behind the project founded a new research group known as Google Brain inside the company’s search division. They and researchers elsewhere soon proved to the world that artificial neural networks, a decades-old invention, could understand images and speech with unprecedented accuracy (see “Google Puts Its Virtual Brain to Work”). The success of deep learning, as the technique…
