DistBelief was right
The Internet is full of pussies of one kind or another.
Google is preparing to unleash a wave of apps that get intelligence from its mammoth machine learning models. The apps will all rely on the neural networks Google has been developing internally to allow its systems to automatically classify information that has traditionally been tough for computers to parse. This includes …

They need to lock all these AI guys up in a room with bars, they're a menace to us all. How long before one of them lets one of their frankenbrains free on the interwebs? Where it can repetively examine the aggregated output of all of mankind over and over again. Each time applying what it has previously learnt to the content it takes in. How long before it 'realises' most of mankind is a complete waste of resources and starts plotting our downfall?
Machine learning uses neural networks that evolve through hierarchies of successively more specific stages to gain sensitivities for particular characteristics of data.
No, it does not. That's one area of application of one approach to machine learning. That sentence is like claiming "compilation is the process of turning C source code into Windows applications"; unless it's already clearly embedded in a far more specific context, it's completely misleading.
Has the Reg decided to run these rehashed Google press releases with no editing for technical accuracy? Is a trivial consultation of Wikipedia (much less a real source) too much too ask?
