- At the end of Google I/O, the company unveiled a new program to give researchers access to the company’s most advanced machine learning technologies for free.
- The TensorFlow Research Cloud program, as it will be called, will be application based and open to anyone conducting research, rather than just members of academia.
- If accepted, researchers will get access to a cluster of 1,000 Cloud TPUs for training and inference.
- If that level of openness isn’t your cup of tea, Google is also planning to launch a Cloud TPU Alpha program for internal, private sector, work.
- The application for the program isn’t open yet, but Google is directing interested parties to fill out a form indicating interest.

- It wants to wield influence in the wider AI ecosystem, and to do so has put together an impressive stack of machine learning tools — from software to servers — that mean you can build an AI product from the ground up without ever leaving the Google playpen.
- The heart of this offering is Google’s machine learning software TensorFlow.
- They attract talent to Google and help make the company’s in-house software the standard for machine learning.
- “There are technical differences between [different AI frameworks], but machine learning communities live off community support and forums, and in that regard Google is winning,” he tells The Verge.
- Yesterday, for example, Google announced that Android now has a staggering two billion monthly active users, and to keep the software’s edge, the company is honing it with machine learning.
Google has always used its annual I/O conference to connect to developers in its sprawling empire. It announces new tools and initiatives, sprinkles in a little hype, and then tells those watching:…

- At the moment, artificial intelligence lives in the cloud, but Google — and other big tech companies — want it work directly on your devices, too.
- At Google I/O today, the search giant announced a new initiative to help its AI make this leap down to earth: a mobile-optimized version of its machine learning framework named TensorFlowLite.
- The newly announced version, TensorFlowLite, will build on this, helping users slim down their machine learning algorithms to work on-device.
- The company also announced that an API for making machine learning work better with phone chips would be coming sometime in the future — a clear sign that Google thinks your next phone will have an AI-optimized chip in it.
- TensorFlowLite should help Google (and the wider AI research community) bring even more interesting functions like this to our most-used and most-important devices.

- Moving beyond a back-end tool for the enterprise, artificial intelligence (AI) is taking on more sophisticated roles within technology interfaces.
- From autonomous driving vehicles that use computer vision, to live translations made possible by machine learning, AI is making every interface both simple and smart–and setting a high bar for how future experiences will work.
- AI is poised to act as the face of a company’s digital brand and a key differentiator – and become a core competency demanding of C-level investment and strategy.
See how Artificial Intelligence plays a wide range of increasingly sophisticated roles in creating better customer interactions at the user interface (UI).

- It’s not surprising as conversations are at the heart of unlocking opportunities such as a new job, business lead or career advice.
- That’s why we’re rolling out an even smarter messaging experience with the ability to message a connection from wherever you may be on LinkedIn, along with suggestions that can help connect you to a new job.
- For example, you can have a conversation with a connection without ever leaving their profile, or reach out to someone directly from the LinkedIn Feed.
- In fact, nearly 50% of LinkedIn members have found a job through a mutual connection.
- For example, when looking at a job posting at a company you’re interested in we’ll show you which of your connections work there, or who can introduce you to someone at the company.
Did you know that 80% of LinkedIn members consider professional networking to be important to career success? It’s not surprising as conversations are at the heart of unlocking opportunities such as a new job, business lead or career advice.
