He pushed doctors to conduct an M.R.I., and three weeks later, surgeons in Boston removed a cancerous tumor the size of a tennis ball from his brain."
Active reading requires ‘reactive documents’: text and visuals enriched with small interactive handles for the user to play and interact with. In Victor’s words, this is the definition of a reactive document:"
According to Xiang Zhang at Berkeley and Yann LeCun at Facebook, you can put characters into convolutional neural networks and they can figure out the words, phrases, sentence structure, all the way up to abstract concepts and sentiment.
It's just a proof of concept but they said they tested it by asking to predict whether Amazon reviews were positive or negative, and it was 96% accurate, predicting what the number of stars were, which it got with 73% accuracy, predicting the main topic of news articles, which it got with 92% accuracy in English, 97% accuracy in Chinese, and predict the main topic of Yahoo! answers, which it got with 70% accuracy.

Researchers at DeepMind have published a paper in the journal Nature wherein they describe a novel algorithm, called a deep Q-network (DQN), that can learn to excel at a wide variety of classic Atari 2600 videogames — everything from side-scrolling shooters to boxing to 3D car racing — using only the raw screen pixels, a set of available actions and game score as input.
By using a neurobiologically inspired mechanism, termed experience replay, DQN performed at more than 75% of the level of a professional human player in more than half of the 49 games tested, sometimes even developing long-term strategies for success. Head over to the Google Research blog to learn more about the Machine Learning framework that made this possible.
