The increasing demand and use of Artificial Intelligence have forced Google to turn its attention from searching to AI techniques. A few days ago Google made a rapid progress in the field of AI by starting working on Real World Object Detection. Moodstock, a French company will assist Google in this project. Moodstock is working on object recognition technique for more than 2.5 years and their valuable work got the attention of Google.
Everyone is curious about the use of Object Detection Technique by Google and yet it has not been announced by Google that for what purpose this technique will be used. Applications like Google Now are already there for telling you what’s around you but this time, Google will come with something extravagant.
According to Moodstock blog post
“Today, we're thrilled to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to join forces with Google in order to deploy our work at scale. We expect the acquisition to be completed in the next few weeks. Our focus will be to build great image recognition tools within Google.”
Such applications have been used by many of the online retailers like Amazon to detect the products for the customers. But surely Google will not use this technique for such purposes. Acquisition of Google with Moodstock’s application may just be an addition the internet knowledge about Artificial Intelligence.
Anything involving real-world detection sounds very interesting as well as scary, but Google’s acquisition to Moodstock has surely paved a way for smart AI applications. We hope that this AI revolution will bring more comfort and ease to our lives.
