Google’s DeepMind is also going down the ‘imagination’ path

Just another quick self glorifying I told you so post. Wired reports that Google is also drawing on imagination as a means to improve their AI:

“What differentiates these agents is that they learn a model of the world from noisy sensory data, rather than rely on privileged information such as a pre-specified, accurate simulator. Imagination-based approaches are particularly helpful in situations where the agent is in a new situation and has little direct experience to rely on, or when its actions have irreversible consequences and thinking carefully is desirable over spontaneous action.”

The other AI imagination pioneer I mentioned a year back in the meantime secured $50 Mio in funding last week.
