The future of AI

Here's a brilliant post: I think this suggests that deep neural nets represent a fundamentally new computational capability, different from classical computing that run sequentially on CPUs and efficiently emulate Turing machines. I’ll call this new capability cognitive computing to contrast with classical computing and quantum computing. Deep neural network-based software systems aren’t about emulating Turing machines or … Continue reading The future of AI
