Google PAIR Initiative To Help Humans Understand Machines | Email Insider

Follow on Twitter as @LaurieSullivan
"Google has launched a research initiative to help humans better understand artificial intelligence (AI), as search continues to rely heavily on machine learning and similar technologies" says Laurie Sullivan, writer and editor for MediaPost. 


The initiative is called PAIR; it stands for “People + AI Research.”

PAIR will focus on the relationship between people and technology, new applications it enables, and how to make it comprehensive for all. "The goal isn’t just to publish research; we’re also releasing open source tools for researchers and other experts to use," Martin Wattenberg, senior research scientist at Google Brain, wrote in a blog post.

Google will divide the research into three areas: engineers and researchers, domain experts, and everyday users.

The research geared toward everyday users aims to open a new world to consumers, so they can look at technology differently.

Wattenberg admits, Google doesn’t have all the answers. And many times, AI will get the answers wrong...

Google provides a link allowing those interested to try the platform.
