  • “And we have something called Google Brain, where we do our machine learning with special processors.
  • One little known fact: Google’s data centers and the Google Brain are not painted in “Google colors,” the primary colors, popular with pre-schoolers, that are used for Google’s products and the sprawling Googleplex HQ.
  • And there’s the Google Brain,” she says, describing seeing it behind those double doors.
  • Inside the data centers, the servers use LED lights, so they kinda of glow, just like you’d imagine a massive computer brain – one that is getting smarter all the time – to look.
  • Google has built a team of machine learning researchers that call themselves the Google Brain Team.

The entire tech industry is racing to build artificial intelligence and machine learning…

  • The chip giant is betting that machine learning is going to be a big deal in the data center.
  • “There is far more data being given off by these machines than people can possibly sift through,” Waxman said.
  • The chip giant isn’t actually saying how much it is paying, but a source with knowledge of the deal said it is valued at around $408 million.
  • “There’s always a next wave,” Waxman said, noting that corporate computing has already gone from mainframes to client-server and now on to cloud computing. “
  • Intel is snapping up deep learning startup Nervana Systems in a huge bet that artificial intelligence represents the next big shift inside corporate data centers.
