Deep Learning

Hinton I will give a brief history of deep learning explaining what it is, what kinds of task it should be good for and why it was largely abandoned in the 1990's. I will then describe how ideas from statistical physics were used to make deep learning work much better. Finally I will describe how deep learning is now used by Google for speech recognition and object recognition and how it may soon  be used for machine translation.
