the London-based artificial intelligence company owned by Alphabet Inc. claims it overcame a key limitation affecting one of the most promising machine learning technologies: the software’s inability to remember The breakthrough described in a paper published Tuesday in the academic journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences may open the way for artificial intelligence systems to be more easily applied to multiple tasks instead of being narrowly trained for one purpose It should also improve the ability of AI systems to transfer knowledge between tasks and to master a sequence of linked steps Watch all our videos from Express Technology Neural networks software which is loosely based on the structure of synapses in the human brain are considered the best machine learning technique for language translation image classification and image generation But these networks suffer from a major flaw scientists call “catastrophic forgetting” They exist in a kind of perpetual present: every time the network is given new data it overwrites what it has previously learned In human brains neuroscientists believe that one way in which memory works is that connections between neurons that seem important for a particular skill become less likely to be rewired The DeepMind researchers drew on this theory known as synaptic consolidation to create a way to allow neural networks to remember They worked with Claudia Clopath a neuroscientist at London’s Imperial College who is a co-author on the paper “We have shown it is possible to train a neural network sequentially which was previously thought to be a fundamental limitation” James Kirkpatrick a DeepMind researcher who was the lead author on the paper said in an interview The researchers created an algorithm called Elastic Weight Consolidation or EWC that computes how important each connection in a neural network is to the task it has just learned and then assigns this connection a mathematical weight proportional to its importance The weight slows down the rate at which the value of that particular node in the neural network can be altered In this way the network is able to retain knowledge while learning a new task The researchers tested the algorithm on ten classic Atari games which the neural network had to learn to play from scratch DeepMind had previously created an AI agent able to play these games as well or better than any human player But that earlier AI could only learn one game at a time If it was later shown one of the first games it learned it had to start all over again The new EWC-enabled software was able to learn all ten games and on average come close to human-level performance on all of them It did not however perform as well as a neural network trained specifically for just one game the researchers wrote Also Read:Alphabet’s DeepMind is exploring why robots could end up killing Peter Dayan a professor of neuroscience at University College London said DeepMind’s paper might benefit neuroscientists in thinking about how synaptic consolidation works He said studies by psychologist John Pearce at Cardiff University seemed to indicate a very similar mechanism

able to beat the world’s best players at the ancient Asian strategy game Go That achievement was considered a major milestone in computer science because Go has so many possible moves that a computer

must be breathing a sigh of relief as officials at the European particle physics laboratory CERN today released a revised budget for the next 5 years that trims spending by about 6% but does not cancel any projects The facility near Geneva Switzerland houses the world’s largest atom smasher—the 27-kilometer-long subterranean Large Hadron Collider (LHC)—and has an annual budget of just under $1 billion that was supposed to increase with inflation But the world’s financial woes have hurt the nations that pay CERN’s bills and they’ve been pressuring the lab to trim its costs CERN officials now say that they can save about $340 million from 2011 through 2015 by delaying upgrades to current machines and research and development for future ones Officials do not plan to lay off any of CERN’s 2250 staff members The new plan “protects the current research program and also makes a commitment to the future by not cancelling anything but simply slowing down longer-term projects” says CERN spokesperson James Gillies The scheme comes in response to a request in June from the lab’s finance committee which comprises representatives from funding agencies in the 20 European nations that support CERN to find ways to cut costs Broadly speaking lab officials identified three ways to pinch pennies as CERN Director General Rolf Heuer explained in a memo to CERN users today First CERN will slow down planned upgrades or replacements to the various accelerators that feed particles into the LHC which is now smashing protons together at unprecedented energies For example one new accelerator known as Linac4 would come on line in 2016 instead of 2015 Improvements in LHC’s feeder accelerators are necessary steps toward an upgrade in the intensity of its beams originally planned for 2015 Second in 2012 officials will shut down all of the labs eight accelerators for the entire year as they make repairs to unreliable electrical connections in the LHC which are currently limiting it to run at half its design energy In addition to feeding the LHC those accelerators normally feed other experiments So for that year CERN will not send a beam of neutrinos to an underground experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy or provide beams for anti-hydrogen experiments and nuclear physics research on its Geneva campus Finally CERN would spend less on research and development for a future machine called the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) intended to explore in greater detail the new particles spotted by the LHC CERN is spending about $20 million this year on CLIC and that amount was supposed to ramp up to $60 million by 2015 explains CERN’s Jean-Pierre Delahaye who works on the project Now spending on CLIC R&D will level off once it reaches $30 million in a couple of years “The good news is that the resources for CLIC are still increasing” Delahaye says The CLIC team still plans to complete a so-called conceptual design report for CLIC next year although it will have to scale back the scope of a more-detailed technical design report scheduled for 2017 Delahaye says In fact the pain of the various proposed delays may be ameliorated in large measure by delays already incurred by the LHC That machine was supposed to start taking data in 2008 but it suffered a catastrophic breakdown just 9 days after researchers first circulated particles through it in September 2008 So the LHC began taking data only in late March this year leaving it 18 months behind schedule (At one time CERN aimed to start the LHC in 2005) So there is more time to upgrade CERN’s smaller accelerators and to plan for whatever machine might come after the LHC The new plan “is consistent with [the delays to] the LHC” Delahaye says Gillies says the finance committee has embraced CERN’s proposed cost-saving measures The plan must still be approved by CERN’s governing council which also comprises representatives of its member nations and next meets in September Written by Express News
