No other technology was more important over the past decade than artificial intelligence. Stanford's Andrew Ng called it the new electricity, and both Microsoft and Google changed their business strategies to become "AI-first" companies. In the next decade, all technology will be considered "AI technology." And we can thank deep learning for that. Deep learning is a friendly facet of machine learning that lets AI sort through data and information in a manner that emulates the human brain's neural network.


Revisiting the rise of AI: How far has artificial intelligence come since 2010? - AIVAnet

Facebook was already a giant, time-consuming leviathan; smartphones and the iPad were a daily part of people's lives; The Walking Dead was a big hit on televisions across America; and the most talked-about popular musical artists were the likes of Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. So pretty much like life as we enter 2020, then? The span of time between 2010 to 2020 brought some of the most amazing technological advances the world has ever seen, so in the spirit of reflection, we've compiled a series of stories that take a look back at the previous decade through a variety of different lenses. One place that things most definitely have moved on in leaps and bounds, however, is on the artificial intelligence front. Over the past decade, A.I. has made some huge advances, both technically and in the public consciousness, that mark this out as one of the most important ten year stretches in the field's history.

Geoffrey Hinton was in high school when a friend convinced him that the brain worked like a hologram. To create one of those 3-D holographic images, you record how countless beams of light bounce off an object and then you store these little bits of information across a vast database. While still in high school, back in 1960s Britain, Hinton was fascinated by the idea that the brain stores memories in much the same way. Rather than keeping them in a single location, it spreads them across its enormous network of neurons. This may seem like a small revelation, but it was a key moment for Hinton -- "I got very excited about that idea," he remembers.


An introduction to deep learning

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning is impacting everything from healthcare to transportation to manufacturing, and more. Companies are turning to deep learning to solve hard problems, like speech recognition, object recognition, and machine translation. One of the most impressive achievements this year was AlphaGo beating the best Go player in the world. With the victory, Go joins checkers, chess, othello, and Jeopardy as games machines have defeated human at. While beating someone at a board game might not seem useful on the surface, this is a huge deal.
