According to a report in MIT Technology Review, the start up called DeepMind, that was purchased by Google earlier this year, demonstrated a humanlike ability for a neural network for the first time ever, in neural network research.
The program, which builds on the decades old knowledge of “chunks of knowledge” processing of human brain, successfully integrates this ability onto a typical neural network. Chunks of knowledge concept basically states that human brain, can store only about 7 packages of information in its short term memory, and afterwards links them to the next processing as a single chunk of information and so on. By integration of the system, company claims that it dramatically increases the effectiveness of an ordinary network. Please read the detailed post on MIT Technology review for more information.
Google’s purchase of DeepMind was also reported in Robotic Magazine earlier this year.
