Why Google’s CEO Is Excited About Automating Artificial Intelligence

Google’s CEO is excited about seeing #AI take over some work of his AI experts

  • Sundar Pichai at the company’s annual developer conference in Mountain View, experts are in short supply as companies in many industries rush to take advantage of recent strides in the power of artificial intelligence.
  • At Google’s annual developer conference today, Pichai introduced a project called AutoML coming out of the company’s Google Brain artificial intelligence research group.
  • The company is trying to lure new customers in the corporate cloud computing market, where it lags leader Amazon and second-place Microsoft (see “Google Reveals Powerful New AI Chip and is targeted at making it easier to use a technique called deep learning, which Google and others use to power speech and image recognition, translation, and robotics (see “10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013: Deep Learning”).
  • “We do it by intuition,” says Quoc Le, a machine-learning researcher at Google working on the AutoML project.Last month, Le and fellow researcher Barret Zoph presented results from experiments in which they tasked a machine-learning system with figuring out the best architecture to use to have software learn to solve language and image-recognition tasks.On the image task, their system rivaled the best architectures designed by human experts.
  • But like many ideas in the field of artificial intelligence, the power of deep learning is allowing new progress.

AI software that can help make AI software could accelerate progress on making computers smarter.

  • JavaScript will be our means of learning a paradigm, where you apply it is up to you.
  • The language is fully capable of writing top notch functional code.

  • Its also easier to get started in this language since its mixed paradigm and you can fall back on your current practices while there are gaps in your knowledge.
  • Part 2 (currently chapters 8+) will address type classes like functors and monads all the way through to traversable.

This is a book on the functional paradigm in general. We’ll use the world’s most popular functional programming language: JavaScript. Some may feel this is a poor choice as it’s against the grain of the current culture which, at the moment, feels predominately imperative. However, I believe it is the best way to learn FP for several reasons: @ReactiveConf: Read this great intro gitbook on functional programming: #ReactJS
