Google unveiled a new research project dubbed CADIE. CADIE stands for Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity.
For several years now a small research group at Google has been working on some challenging problems in the areas of neural networking, natural language and autonomous problem-solving.
Last fall this group achieved a significant breakthrough: a powerful new technique for solving reinforcement learning problems, resulting in the first functional global-scale neuro-evolutionary learning cluster.
Since then progress has been rapid, and tonight we're pleased to announce that just moments ago, the world's first Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity (CADIE) was switched on and began performing some initial functions.
It's an exciting moment that we're determined to build upon by coming to understand more fully what CADIE's emergence might mean, for Google and for our users.
More details about Google CADIE can be found on the Google CADIE page.
