Google is the first thing that comes to mind when you have to look up information, translate text or sort out emails. The company says machine learning will play a bigger part in Google's services in the future.
On Thursday, Alphabet, Google's parent company, reported its financial quarterly results. Its revenue and profit both got a boost as compared to last year. It was Sundar Pichai's first earnings call after he became the CEO of Google. Along with revealing the figures for the quarter, he also mentioned about how significant machine learning for Google's future is.
He said, "Machine learning is a core, transformative way by which we're rethinking everything we're doing."
While speaking, he put the focus on a branch of artificial intelligence which is grabbing attention in recent times. It is about a system of using computer algorithms with a capability of learning over time. One of the widespread examples is how it uses the system for emails, where the machine learning figures out by observing the behavior of the user, which of the emails go into spasm and the ones which should be allowed.
Google, has used it for long in the voice search and language translation operations and according to Pichai, there has been a rapid progress in this technology significantly in the last couple of years.
