Google announced late last month that it is partnering with the University of Oxford to accelerate its research into artificial intelligence, including areas such as image recognition and natural language understanding.
Google DeepMind will work with four leading experts in the use of deep learning for natural language understanding. The group will be working on efforts to enable machines to better grasp what humans say to them.
As part of the effort, Google DeepMind will make contributions to establish a partnership with the computer science and engineering departments at the university. That partnership will include student internships, lectures and workshops.
