Zurich: Google opens a Research Center
1Google announced this morning it’s opening a dedicated machine learning research center in Europe, which will be based in its Zurich office. The center will focus on the development of products and research in the areas of Machine Intelligence. Specifically (…) it will research ways to improve machine learning infrastructure as well as how to put it into practical use. Researchers will also work with linguists to advance Natural Language Understanding – machines’ ability to understand and process human language.
(…) Google also notes that it makes sense for it to have a research home in Europe, where many of the world’s top technical universities reside. This gives it access to researchers to build out its teams.(…)
