Google has trained a computer to find videos of cats on the internet. I’m not really sure what it means when they say “It basically invented the concept of a cat.” but virtually anyway that statement can be interpreted is awesome. (I believe they probably had a feedback loop/scoring mechanism that scored actual cat videos as judged by a meta-critic (like a human) higher than non-cat videos and with this feedback the algorithm was able to eventually define parameters that are “cat”.)
