While deep learning algorithms have made great strides in giving machines perceptual abilities like vision, they have fallen short of giving them human-like reasoning skills.

Yann LeCun, chief AI scientist at Facebook, a professor at New York ­niversity and 2018 ACM A.M. Turing Award co-recipient, suggested during a recent ACM webinar that the deep learning subcategory known as unsupervised learning could help the technology overcome this hurdle.

LeCun thinks researchers should focus on temporal prediction by training large neural networks to predict the second half of a video when given the first.

­ltimately, LeCun said, unsupervised learning will help computers develop a model of the world that can be used to predict future states of the world.
