Microsoft Challenges Google’s Artificial Brain With ‘Project Adam’

Despite just announcing its biggest ever job cuts, at around 18,000 employees, Microsoft is planning to challenge Google’s Artificial Brain with its own Project Adam. Wired reports that: “Like similar deep learning systems, Adam runs across an array of standard computer servers, in this case machines offered up by Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service. Deep learning aims to more closely mimic the way the brain works by creating neural networks—systems that behave, at least in some respects, like the networks of neurons in your brain—and typically, these neural nets require a large number of servers.”
