Many people - myself included - just don't enjoy the supposed humour of April Fool's day. However, with no shortage of pranks circulating the Internet in the early hours of morning - including of course an effort from HEXUS - Google has once again had to outdo itself by launching what it claims to be the world's first artificial intelligence.

Dubbed CADIE (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity), the singularity became self aware on April 1st and managed to take control of the search giant by which it was created.

Shortly after, CADIE launched a slew of new Google products including Gmail Autopilot, Google Chrome 3D and Google Brain Search for Mobile. With her own blog and YouTube channel, CADIE's quickly becoming an online celebrity, here's one of her first public announcements to the world.



Hats off to Google, April 1st pranks don't come much better than this. For more information about CADIE, check out her YouTube channel and blog.
