Events: Igniting Technology

2016 Series

Using massive computational power, deep machine learning can now recognize objects and translate speech in real time, taking a big step toward true artificial intelligence. In the past few years, companies including Google, Apple and IBM have been aggressively snapping up startup companies and researchers with deep-learning expertise. For consumers, that results in software better able to sort through photos, understand spoken commands and translate text from foreign languages. For scientists and industry, deep-learning computers can search for potential drug candidates, map real neural networks in the brain or predict the functions of proteins. Learn more
