VIRAL KNOWLEDGE: The “genioux facts” knowledge news

Extra-condensed knowledge

A decade ago, the artificial-intelligence pioneer transformed the field with a major breakthrough. Now he’s working on a new imaginary system named GLOM.
  • Back in November, the computer scientist and cognitive psychologist Geoffrey Hinton had a hunch. After a half-century’s worth of attempts—some wildly successful—he’d arrived at another promising insight into how the brain works and how to replicate its circuitry in a computer.
  • Hinton thinks of GLOM (“Geoff’s Last Original Model.”) as a way to model human perception in a machine—it offers a new way to process and represent visual information in a neural network. 
  • Hinton hopes GLOM might be one of several breakthroughs that he reckons are needed before AI is capable of truly nimble problem solving—the kind of human-like thinking that would allow a system to make sense of things never before encountered; to draw upon similarities from past experiences, play around with ideas, generalize, extrapolate, understand.
  • GLOM is designed to sound philosophically plausible. But will it work?

I’m a senior editor at MIT Technology Review, writing about computing (among other things). Over the years I’ve reported on everything from crumpled paper to knitting as coding to the 120-sided dice you never knew you needed—for The New York Times, The New Yorker, Quanta, Nautilus, The Walrus, and beyond. My latest book is Genius at Play: The Curious Mind of John Horton Conway (Bloomsbury).
