Google rolling out arsenal of services, gadgets

19 May, 2017, 11:40 | Author: Oscar Goodwin

Now, it looks like the Mountain View dudes are replacing an old app called Google Goggles with a flashy new feature called Google Lens. This second preview builds on the first version released in March and is stable enough for public beta testing.

A less fragmented market could help Google boost the return from its Android investment.

Google I/O 2017 Revealed Android O Beta: Google I/O has everything what an android user need.

Google says that the Go will come to users in 2018 although it is probably too early for it to talk about what shape the Go can take.

An outcry in unison was heard all of the world of "finally" as Google announced that you can now schedule new calendar appointments as well as create reminders right from your Google Assistant. They have also added Vitals feature to improve the efficiency of battery. But functionality for imported devices are US-centric, limiting what they're capable of when used in Australia. Sameer Samat, a Google executive, said on stage that the new OS has a feature that easily tracks mobile data usage and ties automatically with the billing systems of wireless carriers. The only way to activate Google Assistant is to open the app from the app drawer. Doing so gives developers a chance to get all their apps, services, integrations, and tie-ins ready before the updates actually roll out.

While the specifics are still to be confirmed Google also mentioned on stage that more of the Google Assistant Actions would be moving onto the phone. And Smart Text Selection improves copy and paste-because who enjoys fumbling with text selection handles? "Where is the user experience not as good as we wanted it to be?"

Cloud TPUs are custom-built for machine learning; 64 of these devices can be networked into a TPU pod, an 11.5 petaflop ML supercomputer.

Now, this feature is available on the iPhone. The company is working on a new Neural Network API that will work hand-in-hand with TensorFlow Lite in order to take advantage of hardware acceleration.

Google is obviously pushing very hard to outpace its biggest and more popular competitor, Amazon Echo. A new tool called Play Protect will automatically scan apps to ensure they are safe to use on device. And there will be a version of the Play Store that highlights apps specifically designed for the next billion users coming online, while still offering the entire app catalog. Google says it will become one of the core capabilities of Google Lens. "They're protecting battery life and freeing up memory". We also think it can help millions of people today by democratizing access to information and surfacing new opportunities.

In addition, Google.ai has been teaming Google researchers with scientists and developers to tackle problems across a range of disciplines, with promising results.

In the Google I/O, Google has announced the successor of the current Android OS i.e. Nougat with Android O which is now for the developers with its beta version.

That's the motivation behind Google.ai, which pulls all our AI initiatives into one effort that can lower these barriers and accelerate how researchers, developers and companies work in this field. And beyond that, downloading and installing apps takes time.
