Currently, Google’s I/O conference is underway and already there has been a lot on the plate, but Google seems keen to set the scene for Artificial Intelligence. Why this is being speculated is because today Google rebranded whole of its research division as Google AI.
The old Google research website is now redirecting to the new Google AI website which is better in every way and much more expanded than before. Other than AI, Google had worked on various computing technologies which will be present on the new website aswell.
The rebranding surely suggests Google’s move towards going full in the AI industry as it has focused its complete research and development department towards AI. Google will be focusing on technologies like computer vision, natural language processing, and neural network.
In a statement, Google said,
“From computer vision to healthcare research to AutoML, we have increasingly put emphasis on implementing machine learning techniques in nearly everything we do at Google,” writes Google’s Christian Howard in a post announcing the change. “Our research has been core to the development and integration of these systems into Google products and platforms. To better reflect this commitment, we’re unifying our efforts under “Google AI”, which encompasses all the state-of-the-art research happening across Google.”
