Google software engineers have been using some serious new toys to build powerful machine learning (ML) applications. You've known a bit about the software part of it (like tensorflow.org). Yesterday we announced a remarkable piece of hardware that is optimized for ML.

My current team in the Google Geo product area has pioneered the use of these devices to extract information from images (see https://goo.gl/Q8mNPR, or the papers in http://research.google.com/pubs/SachaArnoud.html).

If you are a computer programmer with expertise in machine learning and interested solving some challenging AI problems (and playing with some cool new hardware), please see our job posting at https://goo.gl/xEddQi, or contact Sacha Arnoud (our Director of Smart Imagery) at sacha@google.com.
Google has designed its own computer chip for driving deep neutral networks, an AI technology that is rapidly reinventing the way Internet services operate.

It's a pity to see that Brazil is not in this chart...

+Jim Dehnert's many wonderful bird photos has gotten me hooked into learning how to take wildlife pictures, so I thought I'd share this one to thank him for the inspiration.

For iOS-using friends, Google Calendar is now (finally!) available on Apple devices. 

Finding it in the App Store is a bit tricky with the current ranking, but here's a direct link:

More information on the networking gear we have been building at Google for the last decade or so is being made public today. It's an amazing story that many of us have been waiting a long time to talk about, so I'm delighted to see it out there.

It is an accomplishment for not only our design teams but our deployment and operations teams just as much.

I've argued the Google networking team has providing a key piece of the "magic" that enabled every other part of Google that runs anything in a data center. The network infrastructure really is incredible due not just to it's impressive BW/latency/etc, but the cost at which it was built (which probably was not discussed explicitly).

My friend and once again colleague, Norm Jouppi, has just been awarded the highest honor for a computer architect. 

Almost exactly 20 years ago, on a Saturday, I received a phone call in my graduate student office from Norm inviting me to interview for a research position at DEC Western Research Lab. That moment is still today a highlight of my career. "Norm Jouppi knew who I was??"

Those of you who know Norm: please embarrass him publicly with all the praise he deserves for this recognition. :-)
