Google X Lab proves that the Internet is really powered by cats

Google X Lab, the search-engine giant’s supersecret laboratory for Reed Richards-style experiments, made an interesting discovery in its efforts to create a machine capable of learning on its own. The team created one of the largest neural networks for machine learning — aka a brain –  by connecting 16,000 computer processors with over a billion neural connections. It then exposed it to 10 million randomly selected YouTube video thumbnails over the course of three days. After feeding it a random sampling of 20,000 images, the brain began recognizing pictures of cats using a deep-learning algorithm that didn’t include any prior suggestions or information regarding felines and what they look like.

NetworkClean does give a damn about your bad reputation

NetworkClean, a new tool that scans your Facebook profile and flags anything it finds that could damage your reputation, thinks I should tone it down with the booze talk, aggressive and offensive lingo, and naughty adult-content on my Facebook profile. I admit, I was a bit surprised at the findings, but not so much that I had to put down my glass of pinot.
