Neural Algorithmic Reasoning
On capturing classical computation with neural networks.
In this article, we will talk about classical computation: the kind of computation typically found in an undergraduate Computer Science course on Algorithms and Data Structures . Think shortest path-finding, sorting, clever ways to break problems down into simpler problems, incredible ways to organise data for efficient retrieval and updates. Of course, given The Gradient’s focus on Artificial Intelligence, we will not stop there; we will also investigate how to capture such computation with deep neural networks.
