intelligence will eventually solve some of the world's biggest problems -- but
it'll take some smart humans to get it there. Quoc
Le, a software engineer at Google Brain, is one such human.
Brain focuses on "deep learning," a part of artificial intelligence.
Think of it as a sophisticated type of machine learning, which is the science
of getting computers to learn from data.
learning uses multiple layers of algorithms, called neural networks, to process
images, text and sentiments quickly and efficiently.
idea is for machines to eventually be able to make decisions as humans do. But
we're far from that point today, according to a recent Quora post by Andrew Ng,
a cofounder of Google Brain.
34-year-old Le, who has a PhD from Stanford in computer
