    Researchers at Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Psychological Science are working on the next big AI advancement for smartphones. It's called "deep learning" and it aims to make searching even more intuitive than ever before. It takes the "facial recognition" concept to it's ultimate extreme to create an "everything recognition." Here's a quote with the details,

    Associate Professor Eugenio Culurciello explained, “It analyzes the scene and puts tags on everything. When you give vision to machines, the sky’s the limit.”

    Apparently, this new tech won't take too long to develop either. Research into this is being funded by the Office of Naval Research, National Science Foundation, and DARPA. Furthermore, Professor Culurciello started a company, called TeraDeep, which is currently developing commercial applications.

    What do you guys think? Are these tech advances starting to get a little scary or are they simply too cool to worry about?

    That's neat and all, but it looks like they're trying to tell it that the tree beyond that sign, and the sidewalk on the left are people.... Go home Purdue, you're obviously drunk. :D
