Can a computer master the ancient game of Go? With more possible board configurations than the number of atoms in the universe, experts have long thought it to be impossible. But a system developed by researchers at Google DeepMind, called AlphaGo, has done it.

Combining a state-of-the-art Monte-Carlo tree search with two deep neural networks, AlphaGo not only has defeated the top existing Go programs at the forefront of A.I. research, but also has defeated reigning 3-time European Go champion Fan Hui. 

The next challenge will be to play the top Go player in the world over the last decade, Lee Sedol, this March in Seoul, South Korea. To learn more, visit the Google Research blog, linked below.

Interested in pursuing a career in deep learning research? Apply now to the Google Brain Residency Program! The application deadline is Friday, January 15, 2016

The Google Brain Residency Program is a 1 year intensive residency program designed to jumpstart your career in deep learning. This program aims to help residents become productive and successful deep learning researchers. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to perform cutting edge research and work alongside some of the most distinguished deep learning scientists and experts within the Google Brain Team. 

Ideal candidates would have a bachelor’s degree or a graduate degree (e.g. M.S. or Ph.D.), preferably in computer science, mathematics, or statistics. Applicants would present evidence of proficiency in programming and in the prerequisite courses. Evidence can be in the form of academic transcripts, letters of recommendation, notable performance in competitions and links to open-source projects that demonstrates programming and mathematical ability. 

To learn more about the program, application timelines and apply at http://g.co/brainresidency.  

Send any questions you may have to brain-residency@google.com.

In 2011, we announced schema.org, a new initiative from Google, Bing and Yahoo! to create and support a common vocabulary for structured data markup on web pages.

We now see schema.org being used on many millions of Web sites, defining data types and properties common across applications, platforms and products, in order to enhance the user experience by delivering the most relevant information they need, when they need it.

But what’s in store for the future? Find out on the Google Research blog, linked below.

Google engineers have experimented and developed a set of building blocks for the Internet of Things - an ecosystem of connected devices, services and “things” that promises direct and efficient support of one’s daily life. While there has been significant progress in this field, significant challenges remain before the IoT becomes a reality. 

In order to address these challenges, and to foster collaboration with the academic community, we are inviting university researchers to participate in the Internet of Things (IoT) Technology Research Award Pilot, which provides selected researchers in-kind gifts of Google IoT related technologies. 

To learn more about the technologies, and how to submit a proposal, visit the Research blog, linked below. Proposals are due February 29th. We look forward to seeing what you can do with our software and devices!

To help make deep learning even more accessible to engineers and data scientists at large, we are launching a new Deep Learning Course developed in collaboration with Udacity.

This short, intensive course provides you with all the basic tools and vocabulary to get started with deep learning. For more details, see the Research blog post linked below, and register for the course at https://goo.gl/7RdJYV.

Meet the Airbender team, a small group of folks working on physical interaction research & development, in a new video by +Nat and Lo. Airbender’s main focus is to invent new ways for people to interact with computers, including gesture recognition, computer vision, multi-device interactions, VR input, sound, haptics and more.

Introduction
Google is full of smart people working on some of the most difficult problems in computer science today. Most people know about the research activities that back our major products, such as search algorithms, systems infrastructure, machine learning, and programming languages. Those are just the tip of the iceberg; Google has a tremendous number of exciting challenges that only arise through the vast amount of data and sheer scale of systems we build.

What we discover affects the world both through better Google products and services, and through dissemination of our findings by the broader academic research community.  We value each kind of impact, and often the most successful projects achieve both.
