Artificial intelligence research using neural networks has taken off, with a $400-million boost from Google, in part thanks to Canadian Geoffrey Hinton.

Hallie Siegel’s insight:
Really nice in depth story about one of the grandfathers of neural networks Geoffrey Hinton and the history of deep learning. Illustrates the importance of funding basic research, and not always being focused on the applied.
