Unsupervised learning is a paradigm designed to create autonomous intelligence by rewarding computer programs for learning about the data they observe without a particular task in mind--in other words, the program learns for the sake of learning. We believe unsupervised learning will be foundational to building artificial general intelligence.
Today we’re launching a new research unit, DeepMind Ethics & Society, to complement our work in AI science and application. This new unit will help us explore and understand the real-world impacts of AI. It has a dual aim: to help technologists put ethics into practice, and to help society anticipate and direct the impact of AI so that it works for the benefit of all.Read more
