Why Google TensorFlow is the Future of Artificial Intelligence

Google announced their Deep Learning machine library TensorFlow is to be made open source, allowing developers to create applications using Google’s own Artificial Intelligence library. But this is just the public announcement of what has been a long term strategy to hire academics of the Artificial Intelligence world.

Here is Google’s TensofFlow announcement from last week.

This is the same engine Google have been using across their platform such as Google Photos, with its advanced image recognition system, OK Google with its speech recognition, and there are many others. You may never have heard of Deep Learning or TensorFlow, but the technology is built into every Android device and it is throughout Google’s platform. Here is a short video to explain it.

BUT WHO OWNS YOUR DATA?

Not you, that’s for sure. the moment you created your Google account you digitally signed an agreement to hand over all your personal information to Google forever, plus all the changing data like Location Services and anything else they decide to add to the agreement. Personally I don’t have a problem with that, since my life is an open book and have nothing to hide. But in the long run this loss of privacy offers many conveniences I would not otherwise have had. Is it the way of the future?

This also raises the question: how far away are we from a machine that can outthink the human mind? What do you think about TensorFlow, is it the future of AI, or will it be forgotten like so many of its predecessors? Tell us what you think.

  1. Cool a great post very thought provoking and a key question asked! ” will a computer outhink a human brain” do not calculators already do that lol. No on a serious note very interesting TS.

  2. Michael, I am stopping back by to see what is new in technology. I found this page very interesting. In my case, the machines pass my mind up a long time ago. I watched the video and was very interesting. I can’t wait for Google to launch the program. As always thanks for being on the forefront of cutting technology. I will be checking back soon. Keep up the good service.

    • Bob, it’s good to have you as a returning visitor. TensorFlow is already in our devices. It’s now being expanded across Google’s entire platform. These are exciting times we are living in. See you soon.

  3. Michael,
    Very interesting article.
    Artificial intelligence scares the heck out of me. As a human I would prefer to be at the top of the tree, and would prefer conceptual ideas to remain our territory.

  4. Hello Mike
    Thank you for another very interesting article. As always, very informative and innovative indeed. I watched the video and it is very interesting. I cannot wait to see the new technology coming.
    Thank you very much for teaching us cutting edge technology. Your whole website is so unique and highly interesting. – Please keep surprising us with awesome stuff 😉 I will be back soon my friend.

    Have an amazing day full of fun, prosperity and health.

    Warm Rewards,
    Olivia 😉

    • Olivia, Thank you for returning. It tells me the site is connecting with people, and that is encouraging. I will always strive to keep you up to date with a technology focus. If you want me to focus on particular subject, feel free to let me know 🙂

  5. Hello!

    This is actually the first time I have heard about this TensorFlow technology and I have to say that this is extremely fascinating!

    Google continues to amaze every time they come up with something new because they always seem to be light-years ahead of anybody else in the industry! They are constantly innovating and coming up with ideas to improve the quality of our lives, and in all honesty, they always keep us on the edge of our seats wondering when the next thing is going to come!

    It sounds like this is going to be one of the next big evolution’s in how we relate to the technology around us, and is something that I will be keeping an eye on very closely in the future.

    This was very thought provoking and informative, I appreciate you bringing this new technology to my attention, take care!

    • Hello Matt, thanks for your visit. Google have actually built this technology into billions of devices already, so they are light years ahead, as you said.
      Keep coming back as I will be publishing more on this fascinating technology soon.

  6. I’m not quite as scared of technology as I was for years, mostly, because of people like you that create conversations instead of just overwhelming me with their channel consistently stuck on the ‘information station’!

    I am still at the point where I don’t even know half of what my android galaxy note 5 and my lenovo Y50 70 can do. Honestly, it has really started to piss me off the past few months.

    That’s a sign that I just need to work harder!

    Thank you, I will be back to learn more!

  7. What are your thoughts on machines learning to fear/hate humans? What if they were smarter, faster, and did not stop to refuel?
    What if these artificially intelligent technologies actually replicate themselves in a darwinian style evolutionary revolution and improve upon their predecessors?
    What if they can build a machine that invents a better machine ans so on…and eventually it decided that it was best for it’s own survival/will to live – will this tech turn on humans? Will it get so smart that it will invent time travel? Opening wormholes at will, going back in time? ending the human species before it even begins? and rewrites the books of life on earth? turning earth into a TRANSFORMERS kind of planet, where real LIFE does not exist?

    thanks!

    • Hello James, On reading your post, my mind immediately leaped to the prophetic science fiction author, Isaac Asimov. He proposed the Three Laws of Robotics, which places limits on robotic design to prevent some slightly deranged mad scientist from building a machine with those machines that can hate and fear. First off they need to build a machine superior to the human mind, so I wait to see what Google comes up with. Thanks for the thought provoking comment.

  8. Hey Michael,
    Very nice information on TensorFlow, I loved the video and it is really interesting to know about the upcoming technologies. It looks like Tensor Flow has the potential to change the direction of code development, at least people of the video says so. But will have to see what future holds for it. Keep writing about the new and up coming technologies. I would love to check them
    Thanks,
    Chittranjan

    • Hi there Chittranjan,
      Thanks for stopping by. IMO this has the potential to be a game changer, so I expect it to change the direction of coding too.
      I will cover more on this important topic, so I look forward to your further input. I see you are into movies, and PJ suggested we look into flat screen smart television technology, which I will do. So I look forward to your return.

  9. About 10 years ago I met Hugo de Garis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugo_de_Garis), an AI researcher who was working on building 3-D artificial brains that he felt would soon surpass human intelligence. But the really interesting thing is that he thought it would become so controversial that human society would be split into those who supported AI and those who opposed it. He was passionate to the point of tears as he predicted a “Gigadeath war” over the very technology he was working on. I don’t share his concerns–I am hopeful that technology will help us solve some of the biggest, most complex problems of society (though i acknowledge that technology is and will be used for evil purposes too).

    • Hi Kevin, thanks for stopping by and adding such depth to the discussion. I remember De Garis’ CAM Brain, but we are still waiting. We use technology how we see fit, but I like to see it used to to solve problems and make our lives better. Here is a way technology can benefit mankind Augmented Reality

  10. Way to go AI! I am all about technology my friend. I love how it makes our lives so much easier.
    I particularly love the voice search features that the browsers are offering to us, especially Siri.

    Lets face the reality, we need this form of technology to move further into the future. There are robots that crawl our website to give us analytics. I even seriously suspect Greg Corrado from the video above to be a some type of AI robot. 🙂

    I will be coming back for more interesting stuff Michael.
