Posted December 13, 2018 03:00:40California Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence (Caltech) will soon become an artificial intelligence (AI) firm, according to a new report from The Information.
Caltech will become the second AI startup to officially become an AI firm.
Last year, AI firm Algorithm Labs signed a deal with Google to develop artificial intelligence software for Google search.
In 2018, Algorithm announced that it will open an AI office in California.
It will be one of the first AI firms to expand into the state.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Algorithm,” Caltech President Lili Chang said in a statement.
“We’re building a new technology platform to deliver smarter services, with the support of the community of companies building AI, and we’re thrilled that Algorithm is ready to join the fold.”
Chang also noted that Caltech will be using AI technology for its Caltech Artificial Intelligence Services.
Algorithm will develop and manage AI solutions for Google, and it will also work on other areas of AI, such as robotics.
“The goal is to bring a level of automation and automation of work and the way we communicate that to companies, so that we can create an ecosystem where we can really focus on the kinds of things we want to automate and optimize,” Algorithm CEO Adam Levy said.
In addition to Algorithm, Caltech AI will also be working on new AI services for Google’s robotics division.
Google’s robots will be able to work in autonomous mode or in a human-controlled environment, depending on the needs of a given project.
The news comes as Google continues to expand its AI division and is now developing software that can help it create smarter apps for its customers.
Algorithms work will be a key part of Google’s efforts to make AI better.
