Six Current and Upcoming Technologies to Change the AI Industry

Google’s Deep Mind

AlphaGo, powered by DeepMind, won the fifth-and-final match against Lee Sedol, one of the world’s best professional players of strategy game Go.

Google’s artificial intelligence division Deep Mind is currently working on an A.I. program that learns like humans through mirroring a learning brain in a simple way: reusing what it learned previously and applying it to solving new tasks with the key factor without forgetting what it learned. Taking on a range of different tasks, their A.I. system’s performance is almost equal to human capability. Also, the company programmed an added capability of developing photorealistic pictures through human input in a sentence form. Their research isn’t stopping there as the development team continues to innovate
