Google: Machine Learning Won't Take Over The Google Algorithm

google machine learning

Last week, during the AMA with Google at SMX West, Google’s Gary Illyes said he doesn’t see machine learning and artificial intelligence taking over most of the Google ranking algorithms because it is too hard to debug. He said, yes, they have elements of machine learning, such as RankBrain, and other things (he wouldn’t say what other things). But he also said that he doesn’t seem machine learning completely taking over all the ranking algorithms.

Debugging a machine learning process is too hard because machines do the work themselves. If someone hand codes an algorithm, it is way easier to debug issues with that.

Here are some tweets from the event when he said this:
