Google purchases neural network startup to make Skynet smarter

Google purchases neural network startup to make Skynet smarter
Google brought in Ray Kurzweil to help make its neural network smarter, and now Google is purchasing a neural network startup in order to do the same. Skynet... er, Google's neural network has already been a boon to speech recognition and image recognition software, and Google wants to make that all even better.

The startup DNNresearch Inc was founded by University of Toronto professor Geoffrey Hinton and two of his graduate students in the Department of Computer Science in 2012. Professor Hinton will now split his time between U of T and Google, where he will likely end up working with Mr. Kurzweil. 

No word on the financials of the deal, but the acquisition should help make Google's "brain" smarter.

Maybe they can work on translation. I can't speak for all languages, but they're terrible with Latin.

The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Google likes to buy technologies then attempt to do something with them, but as their history goes. It usualy goes no where.

Skynet will kill us all.
