The AI boost Prior to the keynote, Google has made an important announcement of its rebranding of Google research division to Google AI. During the developer conference also, AI was a big theme where the


announcement for enriching several services leveraging the intelligence of the technology are made. They are: Google duplex It’s another experiment that Google made on the human services, where just by telling the Google duplex to make an appointment, it will be done as if a human being is doing it. The AI chatbots place the call on the behalf of the users and can reserve the hotel or book salon appointment. Sundar Pichai had given an amazing demo for the Google duplex at the developer’s conference where the recording of AI talking to hair salon service to book an appointment on the phone call is played. The conversation won’t give a single clue to the salon employee that they were talking to a robot. Google photos Google is putting efforts to become a central hub for the photos to improve the image recognition capability and get the visual search right. This is why Google photo app is made smarter with AIpowered editing features that allow users to separate the photos from the background, adjust the background color and brightness, and colorize the older photos. The AI intelligence also makes suggestions to the users when they are browsing the gallery by analyzing the photos and previous photo editing work. The advice can be- changing the brightness, rotation or other tweaks. Google news The news app is now modernized where the users will see the news they care about, this is curated by artificial intelligence from the different sources as they published on the web. The AI-powered app analyzes and organizes the content published on the internet in the form of articles, videos or audios on various channels, and then provide the full coverage or a brief summary of the news to the users which enable the users to see the different perspective of the same piece of the news. The redesigned app helps the users keep updated with the news of their interest. Google lens This is a new feature that Google rolled out in 10 Android devices’ camera apps which are coming to the market in the next few days. The lens makes the device camera so powerful that just by pointing the app camera at any object, place or image, the lens will analyze and act upon them in the real-time. Basically, Google lens is an image recognition tool that processes the pixels of the photos, and then provides more details with related search tags using machine learning. Smart composer in Gmail The Gmail has never got that much better after its launch as it will become in 2018 with the new AI feature.
