Articles about DeepMind

DeepMind is a company that claims it is just a team of scientists, engineers, and ethicists, among others, committed to solving intelligence, to advance science and humanity. DeepMind was started in 2010 when there was far less interest in the field of artificial intelligence compared to today. It was an independent research laboratory until Google acquired it in 2014. The company is based in London with research centers located in Canada, France, and the US. By 2015, DeepMind was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. The company has created a neural network that plays video games just like humans. This is achieved by the underlying neural network being able to access external memory like a conventional Turing machine. In 2016, DeepMind became famous after its AlphaGo program beat a human professional player Lee Sedol at Go. The five-game match was also the subject of a documentary film. Another program developed by DeepMind called AlphaZero beats the most powerful programs playing chess after a few days of playing against itself since it was using reinforcement learning.
