Submission + - A researcher at the University of Toronto wins prize for artificial brain (thestar.com)

    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. "
