Artificial neural networks can learn. Artificial intelligence luminary Terrence J. Sejnowski details his and his colleagues’ deep-learning research achievements during their three-decade campaign against the notion that computers can’t simulate brains. By combining discoveries in neuroscience and biology with new learning algorithms, researchers can use the brain to teach networks and then use the networks to teach people about their brains. “Deep learning” – a form of machine learning – will dominate the 21st century, answering the most puzzling questions about consciousness and challenging everyone to keep learning.
