The American Computer Association announced on the 27th that it has the winner of the annual Turing Award for the Nobel Prize in the computer industry. The award winners are Sinton, a computer science professor at the University of Toronto, Lekun, a professor at New York University, and Bangui, a professor at the University of Montreal. Europe.
The Turing Award was created in 1966, and Geoffrey Hinton, Yann LeCun, and Yoshua Bengio won awards for research on neural networks, and three will share $1 million in prize money.
Over the past 10 years, this huge vision has reshaped the way technology is created, accelerating the development of face recognition services, voice digital assistants, warehouse robots and self-driving cars. Hinton is currently working for Google, and Lekun is working with the social giant Facebook, Banguio and IBM and Microsoft.
A neural network is a complex mathematical system that learns abstract tasks by analyzing huge data. For example, by analyzing thousands of calls, you can learn to recognize words.
This has allowed many artificial intelligence technologies to move forward at a speed that was impossible in the past, and computer scientists can now build technologies that mostly self-learning behavior, rather than manually coding behavior into the system.
