MANILA -- Google said Monday it would welcome the Year of the Pig with an artificial intelligence experiment using shadow art.

With the front-facing cameras on their desktops and laptops, users are taught how to create images of their Chinese zodiac sign using shadow puppetry.

The shadow art AI game is a playful take on Google's shift to AI. The Mountain View, California-based internet giant is betting on AI and machine learning-driven services, hoping to make such technologies ubiquitous, useful and intuitive.
