New approaches to Deep Networks – Capsules (Hinton), HTM (Numenta), Sparsey (Neurithmic Systems) and RCN (Vicarious)

  Reproduced left to right from [8,10,1] Within a 5 day span in October, 4 papers came out that take a significantly different approach to AI hierarchical networks. They are all inspired by biological principles to varying degrees. It’s exciting to see different ways of thinking. Particularly at a time… Read More »New approaches to Deep Networks – Capsules (Hinton), HTM (Numenta), Sparsey (Neurithmic Systems) and RCN (Vicarious)

Reading list – October 2017

This month’s reading list has two parts: a non-Reinforcement Learning list, and a Reinforcement Learning list. Since our next blog post will be on Reinforcement Learning, readers might like to refer to our RL reading list separately. Non-Reinforcement Learning reading list A Framework for searching for General Artificial Intelligence Authors:… Read More »Reading list – October 2017

Literature Review: ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’

This article assesses the research paper, ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’ by the authors, Marc G. Bellemare, Will Dabney and Remi Munos, published in the proceedings of the 34th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) in 2017. Bellemare et al.’s paper will be assessed on several criteria. Firstly, content… Read More »Literature Review: ‘A Distributional Perspective on Reinforcement Learning’

Introducing Abdel

Hello everyone! I am Abdelrahman Ahmed (or Abdel for short) and I joined the Project AGI team as a Research Assistant a few months ago. I thought it would be a good time to tell you more about myself and what I am working on at Project AGI. Who am… Read More »Introducing Abdel

Continuous Learning

  The standard machine learning approach is to learn to accomplish a specific task with an associated dataset. A model is trained using the dataset and is only able to perform that one task. This is in stark contrast to animals which continue to learn throughout life and accumulate and… Read More »Continuous Learning

AGI Conference 2017

We attended the 2017 10th Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, which was located in our hometown of Melbourne, Australia! Excitingly, the IJCAI 2017 conference is also in Melbourne this week and ICML 2017 was in Sydney this year. In particular, the “Architectures for Generality and Autonomy” workshop may be of interest… Read More »AGI Conference 2017
