Google gets you info by pointing camera at it

The interesting part of the TPUs is that they can carry out both the training and the inference - putting smart algorithms into use - of AIs on them, which put simply should provide researchers and companies with the scope to test and deploy AI systems faster, providing the machine learning is carried out with Google's TensorFlow.

Google is developing a stand-alone virtual-reality headset — one that doesn't need a companion phone or personal computer.

Google Photos will be able to suggest which photos to share and whom to share them with. In fact, feedback along those lines is one of the reasons that you can say "Hey Google" instead of "OK Google" to activate the Google Home. But going forward, you'll be able to stream music from any of your services to a Google Home.

U.S., European Union to Discuss Airline Safety in Washington Next Week
The agency has not said when it will implement the expanded ban, or released an outline of what the actual restrictions would be. As U.S. and European officials discuss aviation security in Brussels Wednesday , the airline industry is voicing major concerns.

Now, Google is drawing upon that treasure trove to teach new tricks to its digital assistant, which debuted a year ago on its Pixel phone and an internet-connected speaker called Home that is trying to mount a challenge to Amazon's Echo. Siri has come as a built-in service on iPhones since 2011; Google's assistant will require an app download. Today Google announced the AI platform would work with third party apps and actions created for Google Home will also be available for Google Assistant. If Google Assistant sees you have a soccer game on your calendar but notices traffic is heavy, it will be smart enough to advise you to leave early.

David Burke told the audience at Google I/O that Android has reached two million active devices this year. For instance, point the phone at a flower and Assistant will call upon Lens to identify the type of flower. Also called Lens, it lets people point their cameras at real-world items and find out where to buy them, or find similar things online. As Pichai notes, "retail" can mean anything from sales, to store manager, to shop clerk, so Google is doing pattern matching to get you the exact kind of jobs you're looking for. Pinterest has a similar tool too. And, most interestingly a voice-controlled digital assistant now available on some smartphones may be put up.

At least for the past year, Google has been shifting from a mobile-first to an AI-first strategy, the young CEO said. Many of Google's products are also vying against similar offerings from other tech conglomerates like Amazon and Microsoft.
