Why Memory and Mimicry Are The Next Big Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence

For the last five years the effort to teach computers to think more like humans, to learn how to recognize speech and images on their own has been the goal of deep learning. But now tech giants and startups in the industry are turning to new tools believing that deep learning has essentially solved its recognition problem. In short, computers have figured out facial recognition and how to recognize what you’re saying. They will continue to get better over time, but the algorithms and basic research challenges have mostly been fixed. Microsoft MSFT acknowledged as much in regards to natural language recognition in a blog post on Thursday. The new challenge? Helping computers learn to achieve a goal once it has figured out what it is looking at. This requires…
