Demis Hassabis is one of today's most influential neuroscientists and computer scientists. He founded DeepMind, an Artificial Intelligence research company, in 2010. He recalls, "In 2010, nobody was talking about AI. We could barely scrape together two cents for it in the investment world."
But since then, mathematical computing has advanced rapidly. One incredible recent example: at the Center for Computational Quantum Physics in New York, AI has been used to trim a quantum physics problem from around 100,000 equations to just 4. The punch line: without any reduction in accuracy.
