DeepMind Logo Sources are saying Google has reportedly just signed a deal for an British startup DeepMind, a rather secretive artificial intelligence startup. This acquisition shows Google’s continued interest in developing leading future-tech and comes just one month after they announced they have plans to create robots.

Claims about how much they are shelling out varies between $400 million and $500 million, but either way, they are spending a pretty penny. The cash is likely to pay off, as Google has been admitting to interest in both A.I and robotics are key features to their top secret Google X projects.

Researchers attempting to elicit artificial intelligence in computer network

Tech EyeResearchers at Carnegie Mellon University have been running a project titled Never Ending Image Learning, or NEIL. They hope to spark the development of artificial intelligence in a massive computer.

The project works by creating a database of millions of images with no context. A 200 processor super computer is  given free reign to move through those images, without any associated data to help it interpret what it is seeing. Those on the project hope that the computer will begin to find patterns and develop its own interpretation of those images, given enough time.

But it is more than just finding associations. The researchers want to see the computer develop “common sense”. From there, they hope that it will be able to learn from that common sense, and essentially begin to think on its own.
