    Google have accidentally released their Q3 results during trading - 20% fall in profits, shares slumped 9% before being suspended. Someone's in deep shit, massive screw up...

    That's going to put a crimp in their xmo bonus.

    Google buys military robot-maker

    Maybe a thread title change is in order. 'Hooray for the military-industrial complex!' or something like that.

    I thought this was just my browser glitching out. This is actually a thing that's happening? Yeah that's really shit.

    Google build their own $82m (it that all??) air terminal at San Jose.

    I read some article somewhere recently about Google eventually turning into Buy'N'Large, the everything company in Wall-E. Maybe they could 'do' the next World War for us, and tell us the outcome, rather than doing it the usual much-loss-of-life route. It will allow the world economy to keep going, and we can continue eating processed cheese in peace.

    You jest (possibly?), but, what would an all seeing, all knowing world wide artificial intelligence be capable of?

    It'd know where you lived, and with whom. It'd know where you worked. It'd know roughly where you were at any time as you moved about and also be able therefore to guess at who you're with. It'd know what you were thinking or worrying about currently. It'd know about your lifestyle and how your health was. It'd know trips you were planning and things that you wished for. It may even (shortly) be able to "see" through your eyes.
    And it'd have almost unlimited funds and computing power in order to process all of that and build a picture of you as a person- and as a product.

    Good job none of that is in the hands of a private company eh?

    I've taken no interest in anything AI related, but that is interesting. If Google is putting it's money into it, you have to wonder if we're on the cusp of rapid development of AI. Banks will tip money in next, hoping to develop autonomous trading platforms.

    Banks already have autonomous trading platforms.

    One other thing. Google have bought Demis Hassabis's DeepMind for it's AI capabilities. Did anyone play Black & White? Or Republic? Yeah, not too worried.

    To a degree, but last time I read anything about them, they were still a bunch of complex triggers or algorithms and high-frequency trading systems. Do these current platforms monitor the news from the middle east and adjust the financial outlook based on how they think conflict may or may no develop? That's the sort of thing I'd expect they'd hope an AI could do, rather than wait for a human to direct it.

    Seriously, has nobody ever watched Terminator??!?!??!!?

    Noob question: what do we actually gain from AI at the ultra-complex level? Why recreate a human brain?

    Close, its to win games of Black & White, that Deep Mind company was co-founded by Demis Hassabis, the bloke who programmed the AI in Black and White, and other Lionhead games.

    And a massive hard drive doesn't do that?

    I'm not being a luddite, I'm just curious as to why we'd need to recreate advanced intelligence when we already have it ourselves - at a philosophical level perhaps, and perhaps at an economic 'shaft low paid jobs even more' also, I can see an argument. The big bit in the middle I can't, however.

    Define AI.

    Banks have systems which monitor external inputs and then act based on trigger points. That isn't true intelligence, it's like the largest and most complicated playbook in the world.
    Yeah, that's the point I was making.

    Google attempts to trademark the word 'glass'.

    Please rename this thread The 'Google are evil' thread.

    They've also ruined pretty much everything they've tried to improve for the past couple of years or so. Basically when a company gets to a certain size they just turn into another Microsoft. :-(
