Language modelling at scale: Gopher, ethical considerations, and retrieval
Language, and its role in demonstrating and facilitating comprehension – or intelligence – is a fundamental part of being human. It gives people the ability to communicate thoughts and concepts, express ideas, create memories, and build mutual understanding. These are foundational parts of social intelligence. It’s why our teams at DeepMind study aspects of language processing and communication, both in artificial agents and in humans.
