Google Wants to Be a Part of Your Kid's School Day
Nicholas Rossolillo, The Motley FoolMotley FoolMay 20, 2018. If there was still any doubt that artificial intelligence will be part of the future, here's more evidence why it will be. Google parent company Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL)(NASDAQ: GOOG) recently revamped its two AI do-it-yourself kits (marketed under the AIY Projects offshoot) for kids and other tinkerers. Rather, AIY kits help solve a future labor need and help establish the brand as a go-to resource for tomorrow's technologists. The thinking is if a company can get kids using a product early, those kids will continue to do so in adulthood. But Google is an internet search company, and the lion's share of revenue and profit is derived from advertising on its internet business.
