“Google Inc said on Sunday it had agreed to acquire privately held artificial intelligence company DeepMind Technologies Ltd. Technology news website Re/code, which reported news of the deal earlier, said the price was $400 million, without disclosing where it got the information,” reported by Reuters.
“DeepMind founded in London in 2012 by Demis Hassabis, Shane Legg and Mustafa Suleyman, DeepMind uses general-purpose learning algorithms for applications such as simulations, e-commerce and games, according to its website.”
As Google is seeking to be the predictive and automated solution that drives infrastructure. “Google, which is working on projects including self-driving cars and robots, has become increasingly focused on artificial intelligence in recent years.”
The role of technology is shaping our planet by delivering sustainable solutions through intelligent systems consider the back link and push in smart technologies all built on technology backbone. Google is leading the way to intelligence thinking.
