Google's Brin 'surprised' by speed of AI advances
|January 20, 2017||View for printing|
Alphabet Inc. has been one of the world's biggest spenders on artificial intelligence. The advancements have even surprised company co-founder Sergey Brin.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Brin said that when he was in charge of Alphabet's research group he didn't pay much attention to a team working on artificial intelligence. Now the technology, operated by a division of the company called Google Brain, touches nearly every piece of its business, including translation, photography and advertising.
"This revolution," Brin said, "has been very profound and definitely surprised me even though I was right in there and could throw paper clips at them."
