Goods About DeepMind DeepMind is a neuroscience-inspired AI company which develops general-purpose learning algorithms and uses them to help tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Since its founding in London in 2010, DeepMind has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers, six of them in the top scientific journals Nature and Science, which is an unprecedented track record for a computer science lab. It was acquired by Google in their largest ever European acquisition in 2014. DeepMind’s groundbreaking work includes the development of deep reinforcement learning, combining the domains of deep learning and reinforcement learning. This technique underpinned AlphaGo, a computer program that defeated Go world champion Lee Sedol in 2016—a breakthrough experts proclaimed to have arrived a decade ahead of its time. DeepMind is now applying its technical expertise to complex real-world areas like health, including several partnerships with hospitals to make advanced technology work for patients and physicians.
