Google is one of the leaders at the moment when it comes to artificial intelligence applications. Just look at Google’s DeepMind for example. This AI literally has the potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. The way in which Google envision our future is one that integrates the way we think of machines.
DeepMind was acquired by Google back in 2014 when the company realized what an asset it would be, and they’ve been proved right. Since then, Google has turned the AI venture into the single largest collection of resources and brain power that has a focus purely on the development of artificial intelligence.
Currently, there are over 250 PhDs and 400 research scientists working on DeepMind’s unlimited funding projects with two main goals in mind. The first is to try and solve intelligence and figure out how the human brain became capable of taking over the planet. The second is use that intelligence to do everything else. If this latter point can be achieved, Google will soon become the most powerful entity on Earth.
And you may laugh, but thus is not some crazy far fetched idea either. These goals are for real, and the company is more than happy to talk freely with anyone about it. To get an even deeper understanding of what their plans involve why not check out a recent presentation given by Demis Hassabis, founder of DeepMind, who will talk you through their ideas.
