To better simulate how the human brain makes decisions, we’ve combined the strengths of symbolic AI and neural networks. Specifically, we combined the learning representations that neural networks create with the symbol-like entities represented by high-dimensional and distributed vectors. The idea is to guide a neural network to represent unrelated... Read more
