We owe the success of numerous state-of-the-art artificial intelligence applications to artificial neural networks. First designed decades ago, they rocketed the AI field to success quite recently, when researchers were able to run them on much more powerful hardware and feed them with huge amounts of data. Since then, the field of deep learning has been flourishing. The General AI Challenge is a citizen-science project with a US $5 million prize fund. The effect seemed miraculous and promising. While it was hard to interpret what exactly was happening inside the networks, they started reaching human performance on a number of tasks: such as image recognition, natural language processing, and data classification in general.
