Google’s pet project, Deepmind, is one of the most mysterious divisions out there of any major company. I think I know what it is doing though. It is preparing the mass-automation of programming, engineering, and eventually medicine. This is revolutionary, as it is the first serious attempt to replace white-collar jobs with machines. The real question is how society will act. I predict that there will be a semi-Ludditic backlash initially, but I think our society will eventually transform for the better because of it.
