What is artificial general intelligence and what are researchers doing to achieve this goal today? Oriol, from Google DeepMind, walks you through the answers to these questions with some interesting examples.

Oriol Vinyals is a Research Scientist at Google DeepMind, working on Deep Learning. Oriol holds a Ph.D. in EECS from University of California, Berkeley, a Masters degree from University of California, San Diego, and a double degree in Mathematics and Telecommunication Engineering from UPC, Barcelona. He is a recipient of the 2011 Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. He was an early adopter of the new deep learning wave at Berkeley, and in his thesis he focused on non-convex optimization and recurrent neural networks. At Google Brain and Google DeepMind he continues working on his areas of interest, which include artificial intelligence, with particular emphasis on machine learning, language, and vision.

I don't know how to play go. Nor, have I ever played. I wonder what probability there would be of me winning a go game with deep mind if I were to sit down and play it?
