Advancements in AI with DeepMind’s Contributions at ICLR 2023
The International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) is set to take place from May 1-5, in Kigali, Rwanda, and is expected to be a milestone in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). Global researchers, scientists, and experts in AI, statistics, and data science will gather to share their cutting-edge work in deep learning applications, such as machine vision, gaming, and robotics. The event will also be a major milestone for DeepMind as a dedicated Diamond sponsor and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) champion.
Generalising AI Models for AGI
DeepMind’s contribution to AI research is evident from the 23 papers they will present at ICLR 2023. One of the primary challenges in AI research is to generalise models that can solve diverse problems across different domains and scales. This is a crucial step towards developing artificial general intelligence (AGI). DeepMind’s presents a new approach where models learn by solving two problems simultaneously, which helps them reason on tasks that require solving similar problem scenarios, ultimately benefiting generalisation. DeepMind also explored the capability of neural networks to generalise by comparing them to the Chomsky hierarchy of languages. Results show that augmenting certain models with external memory is crucial to improve performance, making them more adaptable to generalisation across problem domains.
Innovative Approaches to Address Limitations of AI Models
As AI capabilities advance, there is a need to ensure current methods work efficiently for the real world. Language models, for instance, are impressive in generating answers, but fail to offer explanations for their responses, making them unsuitable for real-world applications. DeepMind introduces a method that exploits underlying logical structures of language models to solve multi-step reasoning problems. This provides explanations that are understandable and can be verified by humans. On the other hand, adversarial attacks are a way of probing the limits of AI models by pushing them to create harmful outputs. DeepMind offers a solution through the creation of models utilizing adapters to control the tradeoff between robustness to attacks and performance on natural inputs, ultimately making them less prone to malicious activities.
Accelerating Science with AI
AI is a valuable tool that researchers can use to analyse complex data and understand the world better. DeepMind’s contributions demonstrate how AI is driving scientific progress and vice versa. Molecular properties prediction is crucial for drug discovery, and Denoising methods improve accuracy for molecule property prediction. In addition, a new transformer is introduced that makes more accurate quantum chemistry calculations using only atomic positions data. Lastly, DeepMind drew inspiration from physics to create a simulator that models collisions between complex shapes, which could have applications across a wide range of fields, including robotics, graphics, and mechanical design.
DeepMind’s research contributions to ICLR 2023 demonstrate their continued dedication to advancing the frontiers of AI, as they address key challenges and limitations in the field. Their innovative approaches towards generalisation, scalability and acceleration of science, all serve to underpin the development of AGI, ultimately driving progress, innovation, and positively impacting our everyday lives.
