AI Features And More Start Rolling Out

Google News

A new system called "match number" will generate a score that is based on how much it thinks you will like the recommended choice based on past decisions and likes.

At its I/O 2018 event, .

Google showcased its new Google News design and features.

Google Duplex marks the key next step in the development of autonomous smart assistants. The company also said that Assistant would have more control over the smart displays that they will be launching in July. Also, in an industry first, this "Subscribe with Google" feature will let you access that publisher's work across Google search, Google news and even the publishers own website.

Maps has been one of Google's most helpful apps; helping users to navigate their ways. "At its core, this technology lets us synthesise information and put it together in a way that helps you make sense of what's happening, and what the impact or reaction has been", Google says.

It's genuinely impressive, and for somebody like me who hates having to call people on the electric telephone, this could be life-changing.

Adaptive Brightness feature of Android P will change the screen's brightness using AI to improve your battery performance.

"Adaptive Battery" will prioritise "battery power only for the apps and services you use the most".

Fitbit female health tracking goes live as healthcare apps start rolling out
It seems that we have a little longer to wait before these features go live, but Fitbit gave us some in-depth details today. There, you can see where you are in your cycle, when your next period is expected and check your estimated fertile windows.

"The Assistant can then give you confirmation that your appointment has been booked for you".

You can also use it for everything you would use the Assistant for, such as setting timers, answering questions, and even placing grocery orders.

OK, Google just announced the new features to come in Android P and there's quite a bit to be excited about!

Google will conduct tests of the Duplex Assistant in the summer, but they have big plans for it to automate annoying tasks. And this time Android P will be featured with AI-based technologies with deep learning. According to the Google blog post, the new feature is only trained in streamlined conversation topics and can't carry out spontaneous and general conversation.

The driving tab provides you with a summary of traffic information for the area including possible delays that might add time onto a commute.

Perhaps the most interesting new feature to be added was "Full Coverage".

An update to Google News was also confirmed, with a re-designed feed and wider range of sources being included within the app. The assistant's intonation was flawless, with the machine throwing in some natural "umm" s and "hmmm" s before it answered.

The iOS version of the app, which has not been as lucky as the Android version in terms of regular update, got updated recently with real-time transit info. Google's digital assistant will call actual people at businesses to make restaurant reservations and hair appointments and check holiday hours.
