Google’s research projects have been rolled into google.ai to create the new Google AI division. This means that Google Research is no more, and a new website has been launched alongside a renamed blog. The move unifies all of the company’s advanced research efforts while explicitly pointing to the machine learning tech that underpins them.
Jeff Dean has been apointed the new head of AI last month, with Search being split off from AI in a reorganization. It is show Silucon Valley’s focus on artificial intelligence. Google clearly wants to better communinicate it’s goal and cause for which it is working.
Google is said to be “implementing machine learning techniques in nearly everything we do at Google.At Google AI, we’re conducting research that advances the state-of-the-art in the field, applying AI to products and to new domains, and developing tools to ensure that everyone can access AI.”
The new Google AI website showcases the best of Google’s machine learning research and product implementation and makes the information more accessible to a wider audience. The basic intend is to create a AI focused environment and give it a spirit and not a functional intend.
