The Rise of Artificial Intelligence through Deep Learning: Yoshua Bengio

A revolution in AI is occurring thanks to progress in deep learning. How far are we towards the goal of achieving human-level AI? What are some of the main challenges ahead? Yoshua Bengio believes that understanding the basics of AI is within every citizen’s reach. That democratizing these issues is important so that our societies can make the best collective decisions regarding the major changes AI will bring, thus making

Famous People in Artificial Intelligence are together at BENEFICIAL AI 2017

BENEFICIAL AI 2017 brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for a few days dedicated to beneficial AI. (6-7 January 2017) People from various AI-related fields had discussions of opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we should take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.

Deep learning: Ian Goodfellow and Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville Deep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts. Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience, there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs. The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated

Towards Bridging The Gap Between Deep Learning And Biology

We explore the following crucial question: How could brains potentially perform the kind of powerful credit assignment that allows hidden layers of a very deep network to be trained and that has been so successful with deep learning recently? 27 September 2016, Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Berkeley University Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, head of the Montreal Institute for Learning
