+ - A researcher at the University of Toronto wins prize for artificial brain->

Submitted by Oldcynic
Oldcynic (932802) writes "Geoffrey Hilton has won the 2012 Killam Prize for his work in artificial intelligence that is designed to mimic the human brain.
    From TFA
"Microsoft, Google, IBM and other tech giants have used Hinton’s ideas to improve onscreen character recognition, data compression, search engine speeds and other pattern-dependent tasks. His work also raises questions that were once the purview of science fiction. "
    I'll believe that it is human when it starts to whine about something."
