The Google Deep Mind program reinforces itself by “learning from experience.” It is fed massive amounts of data to review and builds the zeros and ones upon discrete layers of artificial neural networks, “connections and directions of data propagation.” Because it is not specifically designed for one all defining use, this program has massive application potential across nearly all industry platforms.
A major AI conference took place in Washington, D.C., in October of 2016. Thousands gathered to discuss deep learning, AI applications for the future of the federal government, military , science, finance, weather forecasting, healthcare, education, self driving cars and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The co-founder and CEO of Deep Mind Technology is Demis Hassabis. His goal is to develop AI programs is to make the world a better place. His company plans to use Deep Mind technology to solve “any complex problem, without needing to be taught how.”
And there’s the rub. Will machines who do not have to be taught become the teacher?
