Facebook's Head of AI, Yann LeCun - Teaching Machines to Understand Us

Looks impressive.  Identify "things", label them as "Vectors", associate Vectors to people based on likes and dislikes, cross languages.  Deep learning using Neural Nets.  Training each layer at a time.  Some history of AI, "Conspiracy of AI".  AI momentum caused by paper by professor at MIT, stated lack of progress.  Neural Nets were popular for a while, then winter, then resurgence.  Lots of work done in Canada.

Bigger data sets.  Cheaper costs (hardware, software).
