Google Brain to set-up in Amsterdam!
The Google Brain team’s research focuses on methods that can learn multiple layers of rich, non-linear feature extractors and can scale to large amounts of data. Much of our work is best understood as part of the ‘deep learning’ subfield of machine learning, but we are interested in any methods — such as evolutionary computing, novelty search or reinforcement learning — that advance the capabilities of machine intelligence. We have resources and access to projects impossible to find elsewhere.
