We already knew Google had quite a bit of interest in artificial intelligence and robotics, but it seems they have over $400 million of interest. Google is reportedly in the process of acquiring DeepMind Technologies for $400 million. DeepMind’s Web site describes the London-based company as “cutting edge,” specializing in combing “the best techniques from machine learning and systems neuroscience to build powerful general-purpose learning algorithms.”
This is definitely something to keep an eye on as Google grows into more and more areas of technology. Could Google be trying to rival Amazon’s futuristic delivery drones” We’ll have to wait and see.
