It was because of this incident that many people became aware of the term artificial intelligence.
In May 2016, Google unveiled its own voice assistant, the Google Smart Assistant, at the I/O developer conference. In October of the same year, Google Smart Assistant was powered on its own flagship phone - Google Pixel. Like other voice assistants, Google Smart Assistant has learning capabilities. It remembers the user's actions and provides customized content to the user. At this year's I/O conference, Google also upgraded it with improvements to user interaction. You can even use it to order a takeaway.
In June 016, Google announced that it would be introducing AI algorithms into its own search engine. According to foreign media reports, it's an algorithm called RankBrain. Google has deeply integrated this algorithm into its own engine, and the search engine can identify keywords based on what the user is searching for, thus giving the user search results that are more in line with their habits. In September of the same year, Google Translate began using the Google Neural Translation Tethering Method (GNMT). It has become more fluent and accurate in terms of fluency and meaning.
In April 2017, Google released a free drawing tool called 'AutoDraw'. Through AI, this tool can guess what the user has drawn based on the lines they have sketched, and then find the pattern from the available gallery that best matches the image in their head.
Time came to this I/O conference, where Google not only released TPU 3.0 hardware, but also introduced AI technology on apps like Google News. As of now, Google's own products are largely embedded with AI technology.
Google can have high hopes for the AI industry. In 2017, Google CEO Pichai announced that Google's strategy was changing from "mobile first" to "AI above all". From 2012 to 2017, Google has invested in and acquired more than 30 AI companies, so you can see that Google is very keen to get a monopoly in this industry of AI.
In a few short years, AI has gone from a novelty to a service for users. Google has also been working on applying AI technology to real life over the years, boldly trying to introduce AI in multiple areas to increase its development experience. It can be said that each Google application has its own set of AI system system, which is not only the result of Google's careful thinking from the user's point of view, but also a glimpse of Google's first exploration of the future direction of human life development.
