Google’s simulated neural network algorithm already learned how to recognize cats. Now Google is using the dynamic network to improve the capabilities of its English speech recognition software.Google has new inspiration for their software — the human brain.

For months, the tech company has been developing “neural networking,” a technique that collects data and uses that data towards other processes, much like the neurons in the human brain do when learning something.

Now Google is ready for those networks to be used commercially.

The company has already successfully used neural networking data for computers to recognize cats in YouTube videos. The computer itself was able to decide which features of the videos — patterns, colors, etc. — to give importance to and then identify what it thought was a feline.
