Facebook’s AI guru thinks DeepMind is too far away from the ‘mothership’
DeepMind, the AI research lab in London…
"The challenge I think that DeepMind has is that it’s geographically separated from the mothership in California and that makes it very difficult to build technology that can be used in products," LeCun told Business Insider during an interview in London last week. "So it pushes DeepMind to some extent to try to survive on its own."
Um… you'd think Facebook would be familiar with this thing called the "Internet" that allows groups to work in geographically different places. Just an example, Google has used DeepMind to stop Google's self-built servers from overheating by as much as 40%.
