According to Futurism, the Google I/O '17 conference has brought to light the AutoML, an artificial intelligence system that is capable of creating better versions of itself. More disturbingly, it is able at making AI systems better than anything created by a human Google engineer.

“In our approach (which we call ‘AutoML’), a controller neural net can propose a ‘child’ model architecture, which can then be trained and evaluated for quality on a particular task,” the company explains on the Google Research Blog. “That feedback is then used to inform the controller how to improve its proposals for the next round. We repeat this process thousands of times — generating new architectures, testing them, and giving that feedback to the controller to learn from.”
