Post-Deep Learning: Is Deep Leading the Next Step?

During spring 2016, AlphaGo, artificial intelligence developed by Google, defeated two human Go champions, thus breaking a frontier many people and specialists thought would never be possible. Deep learning refers to an aritifical neural network that is multi-layered.

Based on neural networks and a quite old algorithm known as deep learning, this artificial intelligence has been able to master the most complex strategy game ever created, where the combinatorial explosion seemed to forbid any winning strategy based on sole computation. Go players and specialists pretended so far that only a human mind, if not a human spirit, could have the qualities, the intuition, the creativity to play such a game, and more than that, to win.

AlphaGo’s definite victory killed this prejudice, and seems to open a new Pandora’s box-- creativity no longer...
