Solving This NYC Subway Trip May Be the Key to Smarter AI

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Consider a trip from Times Square to Wall Street.

If you’re at all familiar with the New York City Subway, you know that’s an easy route – no train changes required.

Now, consider a trek from the Bronx Zoo to Flushing Meadows in Queens, where they play the U.S. Open.

If you can figure that out, you’re smarter than most advanced artificial intelligence systems.

According to researchers at Google’s DeepMind AI project, such systems can perform pretty simple tasks like picking out the best Times Square-to-Wall Street route 98.8% of the time. But when it comes to more complex trips, they have a success rate of just 37%.

But now, DeepMind’s big brains say they may have solved that problem with a memory system they’re calling a “differentiable neural computer” (DNC). By doing that, they may have found the key that unlocks the path to truly intelligent AI and deep learning.

Today, we’ll take a look at what DNC is.

And we’ll dig up a company that’s making memory breakthroughs like it possible.

This stock is 40% off its two-year closing high.

It’s going to get back there and higher pretty quickly – and make a nice 25% in just the next year.

Maybe We Should Call These “Elaine Chao Stocks”

My colleagues have been busy making lists of “Donald Trump Stocks.”

I’ve done some of that myself.

But maybe we should rethink that a little.

Trump has said he plans to act more like a chairman of the board, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and the Cabinet handle the nitty-gritty of government.

So maybe we should be talking about “Elaine Chao Stocks”…

After all, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Transportation will head up much of the president-elect’s $1 trillion infrastructure improvement plan.

But more importantly to our interests here, she’ll be in charge of regulating self-driving vehicle technology.

If Chao’s history as Deputy Secretary of Transportation under George H.W. Bush and Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush repeats itself, that’s good use, because she’s known for a light regulatory hand.

To us, that means public companies in the self-driving space are likely to see a big boost in share price over the next four years.

Especially the one we’re looking at today.

You can already find its “pre”-autonomous driving technology in many of the most prestigious nameplates.

Its technology is the force behind two of the most “public” driverless car tests over the past couple of years.

And its shares are primed to soar as much as 40% in the next year alone.

Let’s take a closer look at this “Elaine Chao Stock”
