Twenty years ago, Geoffrey Hinton had an idea that was ahead of its time: to help computers learn from their mistakes. He wanted to create artificial neural networks that could learn to "see" images and recognize patterns through a kind of trial and error in a way that mimicked some models of human brain function. He and his colleagues developed the first practical method for training neural networks, but there was just one problem.
