Google Puts Its Virtual Brain Technology to Work

10 posts in this topic

This summer Google set a new landmark in the field of artificial intelligence with software that learned how to recognize cats, people, and other things simply by watching YouTube videos (see "Self-Taught Software"). That technology, modeled on how brain cells operate, is now being put to work making Google's products smarter, with speech recognition being the first service to benefit.

Google's learning software is based on simulating groups of connected brain cells that communicate and influence one another. When such a neural network, as it's called, is exposed to data, the relationships between different neurons can change. That causes the network to develop the ability to react in certain ways to incoming data of a particular kind?and the network is said to have learned something.

Neural networks have been used for decades in areas where machine learning is applied, such as chess-playing software or face detection. Google's engineers have found ways to put more computing power behind the approach than was previously possible, creating neural networks that can learn without human assistance and are robust enough to be used commercially, not just as research demonstrations.

Well, apparently it already sees humans as demonic creatures.

Just imagine the possibilities...

Over time, Google knows what kinds of faces and body shapes interest you, which kinds of ... *playful things*

So you just say: Spit out some decent porn instead of letting you search arbitrary words that the good videos don't even have in their descriptions...

There, real world appliance that's relevant to the common internet user :p

That avatar, little girl... watch the anime of it and tremble, that girl has nothing of "little".

Honestly, it's a little bit scary all the things that Google is into these days. Are they trying to create Skynet?

^ They should plant a Nuke under the Google servers -- in case they become self-aware ... :shiftyninja:
