Facebook is seeking intelligence. Artificial intelligence, that is
The company is reportedly moving forward with a new research laboratory intended to “bring about major changes in artificial intelligence.” Yann LeCun, a New York University professor of computer and neural sciences, posted about the new laboratory on Facebook and Google+.
LeCun’s post also includes news of a partnership between Facebook and NYU’s Center for Data Science intended to carry out research in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence. He added that Mark Zuckerberg would announce the new laboratory on Monday at a conference in the Lake Tahoe area.
