Recently, a range of information-processing circuits have been implemented in DNA by using strand displacement as their main computational mechanism.

I think it’s because people translate it in to “machines that learn” which as it turns out, is a perfectly good way to think about this topic. I decided to dig a little deep and get past the jargon as I think it’s an increasingly important field and will help unlock the potential for natural user interfaces and technology that anticipates our needs and feels more human. To get some answers, I headed to Building 99 on Microsoft Campus to track down John Platt. Before we get in to machine learning though, a little background John…I was curious why he had a statue of Oscar from Sesame Street in his office?
