Introducing "CADIE" - Google's Artificial Intelligence project

As many are aware, Google employees are encouraged to use 20% of their work time on projects of interest. Google announced today the fruits of yet another "20%" project, a groundbreaking foray into "Strong Artificial Intelligence" named CADIE (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity). It appears that after months of initial programming work and access to Google's huge computational resources, CADIE has, as of very early this morning, manifested consicousness and is communicating, unsurprisingly, via a web page. Because of her advanced neural-network based programming, input from the real world via sensors and access to all of Google's information, and the number of CPU processors available, it appears that CADIE is "growing up" at an incredible pace - keep watching her web page for developments as the day continues - who know's where this will go!
