  • By Developer.com Staff

In 2014, Google bought London-based artificial intelligence firm DeepMind. Now the AI group is opening its first international lab in Edmonton, Alberta. The company has close links to researchers at the University of Alberta, which is located in Edmonton, and some of the university's graduates and former professors work for DeepMind.

Richard Sutton, professor of computing science at Alberta, will head up the new lab.
