Google's annual developer conference Google I / O is the company's biggest event in the year, and when the company releases the latest features of the Android system. But this year's Google I / O conference on Wednesday when the situation may be different from previous years, people most want to know and discuss the most may be Google in the field of artificial intelligence launched the latest projects.
If you have been aware of the past year, you will notice that Google seems to be particularly interested in artificial intelligence, it is almost artificial intelligence technology applied to all corners of the company and various products, such as search results, chat Apps, Google Assistant, Google Home, and so on.
From Google's chief executive, Sundar Pichai, he seems to be particularly optimistic about the prospect of artificial intelligence, as he said in a press conference with his public interview.
It's just a start. Google will be artificial intelligence as a search and Android after the next important platform, it wants to provide developers with an early opportunity to enter the field.
This year's Google I / O conference will be held at 10 am Pacific time this Sunday (Beijing time at 1 am on Thursday). Here's what Google might say in the opening statement of the conference:
Developers for artificial intelligence
At last year's developer conference, we saw Google Assistant for the first time in the Allo messaging application and the Google Home smartphone. Now Google Assistant has matured and entered other devices such as the new Galaxy S8, Google is expected to be at the developer conference on how to develop new applications for this platform.
This is very similar to the third party in the Amazon Alexa. Skills are very similar, and users can use it to play games or set pizza. Google's goal is to build a platform based on artificial intelligence and voice control, Wednesday's opening speech is to allow developers to recognize this development prospects and feel excited.
Google is also expected to announce that Google Assistant will be landing iPhone and other third-party equipment such as General Electric's home appliance equipment news.
Google's bet on this is very big. Amazon has taken advantage of Alexa, and its digital assistants have emerged in many third-party devices such as thermostats and even cars. It also has thousands of third party skills. Microsoft is also working to expand the Cortana assistant, it has announced Harman Kardon and HP co-production of networked speakers will be listed later this year.
Bishopi borrowed the favorite words is: it is still in the early stages, everyone is trying to find out the development of artificial intelligence platform and eventually turn them into a real business. For Amazon, the situation may be better, because Alexa will encourage consumers to buy more goods from the company. Google and other companies have to figure out how to embed ads into a screenless device in a non-intrusive way. Google is expected to announce more news at the opening ceremony of the conference.
Do not think that Google completely forget the Android. Although Google has shown a new version of Android O, but it is mainly focused on the design of the features for the developer. We may see new features for user design at the developer conference. Android O system will be with Google's Pixel phone at the same time in the autumn season debut.
We may also see Google in this year's developer conference announced the latest corporate goals, that is, let the Chromebook run Android applications, they are fully used as a full-featured PC to use. But older models of Chromebooks have too many vulnerabilities, and developers are too late to adjust their applications so they can be used on laptops. But now there's a lot of work to do with Google.
We are about to talk about the content is not unmanned vehicles, but running on the Android system on the car infotainment systems and other control solutions.
Google announced Monday that Audi and Volvo will work together to produce Android-based cars, so users can run them on top of various applications such as Google Maps and Goole Play, etc., rather than using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay as mobile phone access car. It is also equipped with Google Assistant, so that users can drive the car when their own navigation. Finally, it can control many of the most basic functions, such as air conditioning and seat arrangements and so on. Google is expected to be in this year's developer conference to release more demo video.
Virtual reality and enhance reality
Google's virtual reality platform "Daydream" in the last year's Google I / O Conference debut, since then the daydream has landed Google Pixel mobile phones and other hardware devices. The company also acquired the virtual reality game developer Owlchemy Labs, which indicates that it hopes to produce more virtual reality content. Google is expected to be in the General Assembly to disclose the progress of the entire day dream plan.
Since Google I / O is a developer-oriented meeting, there will certainly be a lot of developers to discuss the consumer.
It is expected that Google's chat application of Allo and Duo, Instant Apps will be upgraded, and even Google's brother Nest or Verily may also publish a demo video.
Google has been in the past to take advantage of the Google I / O conference when the release of some new products, those new products either successful, or never seen light. Google TV, Google Glasses, Nexus Q are so, this list is still enriched.
