New Theory Cracks Open The Black Box Of Deep Learning | CFHU

Geoffrey Hinton, a pioneer of deep learning who works at Google and the University of Toronto, emailed Tishby after watching his Berlin talk.
"It's extremely interesting," Hinton wrote. The duo discovered that a deep-learning algorithm invented by Hinton called the "deep belief net" works, in a particular case, exactly like renormalization, a technique used in physics to zoom out on a physical system by coarse-graining over its details and calculating its overall state.


U of T plays prominent role in what magazine dubs Toronto 'tech revolution'

U of T University Professor Emeritus Geoffrey Hinton, an engineering fellow at Google and the chief scientific adviser at the Vector Institute who is often dubbed the "godfather" of deep learning.


Toronto's Vector Institute officially launched

Using his time at the podium, Geoffrey Hinton, a U of T University Professor Emeritus in computer science and Vector's new chief scientific adviser, deviated from the usual prepared remarks to deliver a pithy TED Talk-like PowerPoint on how neural networks and deep learning work.

Geoffrey Hinton, a University Professor Emeritus in computer science at U of T and vice-president engineering fellow at Google, will serve as the chief scientific adviser of the newly created Vector Institute based in downtown Toronto. After decades of being on the "lunatic fringe" pursuing an area of artificial intelligence known as neural networks, Hinton, his colleagues and former students are experiencing an abrupt and transformative reversal in fortune.
