Facebook is reportedly making a big lap to the future by launching a new research laboratory intended to “bring about major changes in artificial intelligence.”
Yann LeCun, a New York University professor of computer and neural sciences, posted the news on Facebook.
LeCun’s post also includes news of a partnership between Facebook and NYU’s Center for Data Science intended to carry out research in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence. He added that Mark Zuckerberg would announce the new laboratory on Monday at a conference in the Lake Tahoe area.
Mashable reports that Facebook first formed the AI team, which currently has eight members, in September:
