Microsoft Project Adam may be the “ultimate machine intelligence”, currently being used to recognize dogs and bugs

At Microsoft Research 2014 Faculty Summit Microsoft showed off a new technology they are working on called “Project Adam”.

Project Adam is a neural net running in Azure which Microsoft claims outperforms Google’s own best of class Google Brain, being used for voice recognition and route guidance, amongst other things, by Google.

At present Microsoft’s system,which is more optimized and actually gets smarter the more servers are added, is only being used to recognize dogs and poisonous bugs, but Microsoft says the system is embryonic, and can eventually do a lot more.

See a video describing the system after the break.
