Why Google Wants More Artificial Intelligence Talent

We don't know the exact price tag and we don't even know precisely why — but Google is buying an artificial intelligence company called DeepMind.
It's a UK-based startup that says it "combine[s] the best techniques from machine learning and systems neuroscience to build general-purpose learning algorithms."
Huh?? Details are thin, but think — deep learning, where calculations allow for machine learning in things like gaming and e-commerce.
