Google to open AI lab in China

It's notable that the new facility is being launched even though Google's services are not available in China. The goal of this center is to find ways to improve AI through basic research while working with the large network of Google engineers in the country.

Of all the fields that Alphabet - Google's parent company - has been focusing on lately, it's made some of the most progress in AI.

On the one hand side, Google is pushing its AI (Artificial Intelligence) research as deep and fast as possible and on the other hand side, president of the second biggest economy of the world, China, has ordered the government to focus and pricess on "big data". There are also 20 new roles to fill in Beijing following this announcement, and Google is making funding available to fund local AI conferences and workshops as well as sponsoring interesting projects and further research.

Extended Synopsis For Avengers: Infinity War Tees Up Marvel's "Deadliest Showdown"
We usually just get a few films until the franchise dies down and another studio decides to take a shot at making another film. Surely one of the most ambitious and enormous blockbusters of all time, the Infinity War cast list includes Robert Downey Jr .

But Google has been looking for a way back into China.

In a blog post, Dr. Fei-Fei Li, chief scientist at Google Cloud said, "I believe AI and its benefits have no borders". China is home to numerous world's top experts in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Chinese citizens may not be able to use Google search, but Chinese developers can take advantage of the company's popular AI tools, like TensorFlow. All three winning teams of the ImageNet Challenge in the past three years have been largely composed of Chinese researchers. "Whether a breakthrough occurs in Silicon Valley, Beijing or anywhere else, it has the potential to make everyone's life better for the entire world", Li wrote in the blog post. According to Li, 43 percent of the content in the top 100 AI journals came from Chinese authors in 2015. And we want to work with the best AI talent, where that talent is, to achieve it.
