Larry Page , co-founder of Google, has apparently announced that the web behemoth is in the development stages of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The realization, it is claimed, may not be as far off as we think. Yesterday I left a comment on John Grant’s blog about companies that embody innovation. I used Google as an example of an organisation that allows it’s staff time to innovate. And how. The thought that the company that has the largest conglomeration of digital information and computing power in the world may harness this to develop AI is quite astounding.
