Microsoft Takes On Google and Deep Mind with AI Research Lab

Microsoft Takes On Google and Deep Mind with 
#AI Research Lab

  • Microsoft has announced the creation of its new research lab, Microsoft Research AI, which will focus on general-purpose artificial intelligence (AI) technology development and provide ethics oversight for its AI operations.
  • Microsoft has created a new research lab which will focus on general-purpose artificial intelligence (AI) technology development.
  • The lab will be called Microsoft Research AI, and will capitalize on the company’s existing AI expertise while pursuing new hires from related fields like cognitive psychology.
  • Located within Microsoft’s Redmond HQ, the lab will ultimately be home to a team of more than 100 AI scientists exploring learning, natural language processing, perception systems, and other areas.
  • This broader focus is in contrast with the more common and specific AI systems we see now, like those that perform facial recognition tasks.

  • By augmenting an AI’s capabilities with the power of learning from memory, it’ll likely be able to complete far more complex tasks on its own.
  • DeepMind, an artificial intelligence firm that was acquired by Google in 2014 and is now under the Alphabet umbrella, has developed a computer than can refer to its own memory to learn facts and use that knowledge to answer questions.
  • It’s the networks that helped DeepMind’s AlphaGo AI defeat world champions at the complex game of Go .
