Deep Learning has made tremendous breakthroughs possible in visual understanding and speech recognition. Ostensibly, this is not the case in natural language processing (NLP) and higher level reasoning. However, it only appears that way because there are so many different tasks in NLP and no single one of them, by itself, captures the complexity of language. I will talk about dynamic memory networks for question answering. This model architecture and task combination can solve a wide variety of visual and NLP problems, including those that require reasoning.
