Rising questions, conversations, debates in #AI focus on how perceptron-centric methods might support higher-level symbolic manipulation, that many believe impt to enable more general AI. On an approach from @MSFTResearch https://t.co/F5Id57tLSh #NeurIPS2019 @compcomcon

AI has largely moved from symbol-based systems to artificial neural network–based models. TP-Transformer and TP-N2F show how a neurosymbolic approach that merges the two via neural symbols can enhance performance and interpretability.
