When Geoffrey Hinton, a researcher at Google and professor emeritus at the University of Toronto, began his work in deep learning in the 1970s, he was told he would spend his life toiling away in obscurity. Deep learning is a form of artificial intelligence that mimics the human brain. Now, four decades later, his research is revolutionizing AI. He joins The Agenda to discuss his work and what kept him going.
