Google Wants Computers To 'Regret' And Learn

According to reports, a new project funded by Google on installing “regret” in computers is currently under progress.

The project is being carried out at the Tel Aviv University (opens in new tab), Israel by a group of scholars lead by Professor Yishay Mansour, which upon completion should bring a revolutionary change in the IT industry.

The group, at present is believed to be working on writing the algorithm that will be responsible for explaining the sense of “regret” to computers.

According to experts, the algorithm which is quite complex is nature will help the computers learn from their own “virtual” experience the gap between what its users desire and what it actually delivers. Based on this measurement, the team lead by Professor Mansour hopes that computers will have the ability to visibility into the future, and hence minimizing any potential future regret.

Professor Mansour said in a statement, "If the servers and routing systems of the Internet could see and evaluate all the relevant variables in advance, they could more efficiently prioritize server resource requests, load documents and route visitors to an Internet site, for instance".

Google, as experts are saying, is probably funding the research keeping in mind the vital part it could potentially play in improving its hugely popular AdWords and Adsense offerings.
