Ever since Hummingbird, online attorneys have been hit by one rank reducing algorithm after another. In the name of “improving” search, we have seen one online firm after another go they way of ancient Rome. Now attorneys can debate their futures as they see the potentially crippling effects of a new “improvement” at machine learning.
Yes that’s right, a machine learning platform from Google has now made it into news. This new platform might be Google’s best shot at machine learning software that uses complex programming to educate a machine on how to recognize the scenarios it comes across.
The big thing in the news was that Google is going to make this project and the whole platform open-source. Seriously? Let’s hope it is not as open to SAPE attacks as WordPress and that it is https right? It is already known that Google is currently using the neural networks in order to teach its machines artificial intelligence.
Users of Google services can already notice the impact of TensorFlow through Google’s latest improvements in Google Photos and other programs. The application of this platform will be experienced across all applications and platforms that Google uses to provide services to its users and applications that rely on Google’s programming platforms for their development.
Google will implement TensorFlow as its primary platform for machine learning and improving all of its services. This can only be done when Google and the open-source community are successfully able to do what is not just a dream. Of course, based on how Google has such a huge impact on the internet, the implementation of the new platform will bring change on the internet overall.
Google has dubbed TensorFlow the second generation of its platform that performs all the machine learning tasks. DistBelief was the first step towards this aim from Google but this particular platform is now getting old. Google has also released statements saying that developers will have much more power when it comes to training machines on artificial intelligence with its TensorFlow platform. Developers will be able to complete their tasks at speeds five times faster than their previous attempts.
Google receives virtually infinite amount of data on a daily basis. It has to keep this data maintained, sift through it every single second and provide its users with the best of its services using that data. This infinite data can be best used when there is a platform like TensorFlow in place. It can also be said that this is Google’s biggest step in competing with Cortana from Microsoft and Siri from Apple. We already know that Google’s search and voice recognition is much better than both the services mentioned but with the implementation of TensorFlow, Google will take its services to a height that other companies might not be able to reach easily.
In simplest words, TensorFlow will be like the insertion of a new brain into Google’s body. This will make Google’s services extremely powerful. For example, if you give a picture to Google and ask it to recognize the picture, Google’s current machine has certain parameters it will check in order to recognize what’s in the picture. With TensorFlow we can expect that power to rise many times in its degree. Google might be able to recognize a cat in a picture for now but with TensorFlow it might be able to recognize all the objects in the picture in addition to the cat.
Users can already experience Google’s amazing recognition technology in its new Google Photos application. With TensorFlow Google will completely change the way it has been providing services to the world. Today, users can already see how websites suggest them stuff based on their past searches believing that a person must have been searching for a particular product because he/she was interested in buying it. TensorFlow will take that service to another level too.
No one knows how good and eye-opening this service might become but it will definitely catch people’s attention and make them want to use the service.
The Understanding Of TensorFlow
The services offered by technology companies these days are nothing more than infinite numbers of algorithms connected to each other in infinite ways in an attempt to produce results that are as close to intelligence as they could be. TensorFlow will also act like a library where the developers will have these infinite numbers of pre-built codes available at hand. They could use these codes for making machines learn to be intelligent.
This will be possible because Google has made this platform open-source. There will be tools available for developers so they could tinker with these codes to mold them according to their needs. Torch is another platform that uses this type of machine learning platform but we can safely say that Google’s army is bigger than any army in the world.
When it announces there will be thousands and millions of developers ready to help the company with its endeavors. There is a huge army of developers always available at hand to Google in the open source community that will be ready to help Google with its TensorFlow development. The programming languages that developers will have to use in order to work on TensorFlow are C++ and Python.
Developers will feel free while using this platform for their work. The most important thing in this platform is that it will run equally effectively on all the devices that are used today i.e. laptops, smartphones, tablets and desktop computers. Developers can work on whatever device they want to play around with these codes, implement them into an application and make use of them. All applications that are developed using the platform will be expected to perform faster, deliver better results that are associated with a machine’s artificial intelligence and its strength.
The DistBelief was not the best effort from Google even though it changed a lot of things and improved services from the company. Google was never able to let any other coders and developers from the world to contribute to the progress of DistBelief. With TensorFlow Google has set the project on the table and given a go to every developer and coder in the open source community to work with it.
With such an effort the users looking for attorneys, for example, are told that they can expect a great outcome just like many other internet and tech services have risen to the sky in the past using the open-source approach in the designing of their system. Of course, us lawyers are CoLT are bracing for the similar devastation that the other so called “improvements” have brought to our bottom lines online.
