Alphabet Inc-A (NASDAQ:GOOGL) unveiled new cloud computing services that allow any developer or business to use the Machine Learning (ML) technologies that power the company's most powerful services, Wired reports. The recent, spectacular victory of Alphabet's AlphaGo program over top Go player Lee Sedol has been hailed as a major Artificial Intelligence (AI) breakthrough and indicates how AI is rapidly becoming a mature technology with a potential for world-changing applications. In fact, AI is becoming adept at more and more high-level cognitive tasks that used to be considered as too complex for automation. "The victory is notable because the technologies at the heart of AlphaGo are the future," noted Wired. "They're already changing Google and Facebook and Microsoft and Twitter, and they're poised to reinvent everything from robotics to scientific research."
