Deep Learning Duel: Facebook or Google?

January 16, 2015

Ads mean money.I want to make sure the motivation behind smart software is on the table. I read two PRish items today: “Facebook Open Sources Tools for Bigger, Faster Deep Learning Modules” and (I think) “Google Search Will Be Your Next Brain.”

Both companies are shaking and baking in the “smart software” aisle of the local online store. The Facebook play is “we’re good guys. We do opens source.” The Google angle is “We’re pretty far ahead.”

Net net: This is less about smart software and more about money via advertising from the customer (you and me). Ah, science.
