Google has asserted its commitment to artificial intelligence by announcing plans to merge all its various research arms and unite them under the new name ‘Google AI'.
Under the new moniker, Google is hoping all of its projects and developments can come together to demonstrate "the state-of-the-art research" happening across the company.
"For the past several years, we've pursued research that reflects our commitment to make AI available for everyone.
"From computer vision to healthcare research to AutoML, we have increasingly put emphasis on implementing machine learning techniques in nearly everything we do at Google," the internet giant said in a blog post, explaining the decision.
"Our research has been core to the development and integration of these systems into Google products and platforms."
The name change was apparently all about better reflecting the company's commitment to artificial intelligence, machine learning and related disciplines.
This shift will see the company expand the Google AI website, as well as renaming its existing Google Research channels, including its blogs and affiliated Twitter and Google+ channels, to "Google AI".
"And if you're looking for information that existed on research.google.com or the affiliated social channels, don't fret, it's all still there.
"Any links to previous Google Research website content, blog posts or tweets will redirect appropriately," the frim added.
The Google AI channels will continue to showcase the Google research, innovation and publications, Google said, as well as a lot more new content.
"We encourage you to explore! We look forward to continuing to bring you the latest updates and results from Google, in AI and across many other areas of research," the blog post concluded.
