The Verge: A pioneering scientist explains ‘deep learning’

The Verge: A pioneering scientist explains ‘deep learning’. “Buzzwords like ‘deep learning’ and ‘neural networks’ are everywhere, but so much of the popular understanding is misguided, says Terrence Sejnowski, a computational neuroscientist at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Sejnowski, a pioneer in the study of learning algorithms, is the author of The Deep Learning Revolution (out next week from MIT Press). He argues that the hype about killer AI or robots making us obsolete ignores exciting possibilities happening in the fields of computer science and neuroscience, and what can happen when artificial intelligence meets human intelligence.”
