AIDL WEEKLY ISSUE 32 - The Consciousness Prior


Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

Many interesting news last week including,

  • MS released new tools on Azure and Visual Studio to support deep learning,
  • Intel released Lolhi, a new neuromorphic chip,
  • Nvidia released its own deep learning accelerator chip design,
  • And we also read a Wire profile on the controversial figure - Anthony Lewandoski.

All of these pieces would normally be the highlights of the week. But then, Prof. Bengio come up with an intriguing note called "The Consciousness Prior". Upon closer read, it gives an interesting take on a potential mechanism to mimic human consciousness, or a kind of access of attention as neuroscientists like Stanislas Dahaene would call. So his paper is this week's theme.
