This Startup Has Developed A New Artificial Intelligence That Can (Sometimes) Beat Google

This startup claims its artificial intelligence is 100x more efficient than Google's

  • Also known as deep neural networks, the AI involves throwing massive amounts of data at a neural network to train the system to understand things like speech and images.
  • Gamalon, a new startup coming out of stealth on Tuesday, claims it’s developed an AI technique that requires training the system on only a few pieces data while achieving the same levels of accuracy as the exhaustively-trained neural networks.
  • By reducing the amount of training data, this also reduces the ridiculous amounts of computing power required by deep learning systems.
  • “It’s going to get worse training deep learning models,” Gamalon founder and CEO Ben Vigoda said.
  • Gamalon has pitted its techniques in image recognition against Google’s TensorFlow using the tech giant’s deep learning-powered “Quick, Draw” program.

Deep learning, a branch of AI, has blown up in the tech industry, but new AI systems are coming online that promise big bumps in efficiency.
