Artifical Intelligence, Robotics and Future of Google

    I don't know if anyone mentioned earlier but Google spending huge amount of money towards Robotics and AI. I have read few articles related this, quite interesting and a bit scary reminding Hollywood sci-fi movies.
    Read this : "
    DeepMind is the latest in a long line of artificial intelligence acquisitions from Google that recently included the learning thermostat and smart fire alarm company Nest, described by Google’s Eric Schmidt as "an important bet" which will lead to products that are "infinitely more intelligent".

    “DeepMind was generally interested in reinforcement learning, and in deep learning, which is very useful in mining so called ‘big data’, something Google has a lot of and is interested in processing,” said Murray Shanahan a professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College London.

    Google also acquired a string of robotics firms in 2013, culminating in the purchase of Boston Dynamics in December, the most high-profile purchase at the time and a company holding contracts with the US military.

    Google’s robotics and artificial intelligence efforts were put under the leadership of the father of Android, Andy Rubin, in December combining seven quietly acquired technology companies to foster a self-described “moonshot” robotics vision."

    Demis Hassabis is a genius chess and Poker player. Legendary mind games world champion. Google quickly spot him and bought his talent and all research for 700 million USD. His company haven't even produced single commercial product yet, he was just researching.

    Finally, I have started to trust Google again and respect their business intelligence.

    This means trying to Outsmart google by SEO tricks is getting harder every day. Google definitely improving its Search engine and investing on intelligent learning machines.

    This is quite relevant to me actually. I've recently started learning about artificial intelligence, more specifically, neural networks at university and I've got to say, they're pretty damn interesting. Whatever Google has got planned - I'm excited.

    Yes, but we don't know their intentions may not be very innocent. I am a bit suspicious.
