Google's Smart Displays with Google Assistant go on sale starting in July

Google's Smart Displays with Google Assistant go on sale starting in July

"It turns out that a big part of getting things done is making a phone call". With LG's proprietary ThinQ AI users can immediately connect to external gaming consoles and soundbars ("Connect to soundbar"), they can switch picture mode ("Change to Cinema Mode") or turn the TV off at set times.

Google will conduct early testing of Duplex-the AI engine inside Assistant-this summer specifically to help users make the type of hair and restaurant reservations noted above.

"If you've grown up watching "Star Trek TNG" like me then you probably considered natural voice interactions with computers a thing of the future", read a post by Andreas Schafer in the blog chat forum.

"We really want to work hard to get this right", CEO Sundar Pichai said.

The Google Photos will be revamped to introduce features like black & white photo colourization, and ability to separate subjects from the background in pictures. The new feature will give suggestions for complete sentences as you start typing.

"Presumably there will need to be some regulation on what a bot needs to do in terms of announcing that it is a bot - this is already visible in online forums for example like Reddit where the bot posting makes it clear that they are a bot", he said. Users can accept the completion by hitting tab.

Smart speakers are becoming a wide-spread commodity, with Amazon's Echo devices and Google's Home coming in a variety of shapes, sizes, and prices, and Apple joining the fray with its own HomePod earlier this year.

Google photos cannot just restore our old black and white photos, but also convert them to colour images. "It brings together natural language understanding, deep learning, text to speech".

There were many genuinely inspiring moments in Google's keynote presentation this week, but it was a small detail that caught my eye. Graphics suggest the sounds are meant to mimic a sitar, guitar, a piano and something called a "resopad". This was just about the day 1, still, 2 days and some major breakthroughs remain to be seen at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. Some people are waving when their images appear on giant screens around the stage.

Google Assistant's six new voices are live in the Assistant settings.

Google responded with a number of "digital well-being" announcements Tuesday such as a new Android "Time Spent" dashboard that tells you exactly how long you spend on any given app, the number of notifications you receive, even the number of times you unlock your phone.

To be fair, this has a lot to do with the sort of services I can afford and choose to use, as well as with the fact that India is charting its own path in going digital - but it's clear that the tech needed to make phone calls redundant for booking and scheduling is easily available, and it's likely only a matter of time before all those small businesses in the U.S. get online. But it's also showcasing how its AI is being used by developers to improve health care, preserve the environment and make new scientific discoveries.
