Live video address:YouTube I/O official website

Google is studying the use of AI to predict floods and flood peaks. Last year, Google increased its publicity on "AI promotes social welfare." The ethical issue of AI has caused great concern. Last year, Google released a study prohibiting the use of AI for weapons and violations of human rights. Sundar Pichai did not return to the stage. The time is well controlled and the battle is completed in 1 hour and 45 minutes. Friends staying up late can rest. Thank you for watching.

After the introduction, DEAN began to introduce TensorFlow. Diabetes complications were screened for thousands of patients in Thailand and India with AI, which has just been approved by EU regulators. It developed a deep learning model that analyzes CT scan images. In addition, the model successfully found early lung cancer symptoms, but none of the six trained radiologists found it.


Jeff Dean took the stage to talk about Google AI. He said, "We really want computers to be fluent in language like real people." We introduced BERT. A new language learning model that can deliberately hide some words during training and let AI guess. . Google dug a few empty words in a sentence, let AI automatically fill in the words

On the battery side, it can last for 30 hours on a single charge. And for 15 minutes, you can add 7 hours of battery life. Pixel 3a will be available to major carrier channels, and the unlocked version will be available through Google FI or AT&T and will be available for immediate sale.

For those who focus on shooting, the mid-range new Pixel 3a allows you to enjoy half the price of Pixel 3. Google will provide Pixel 3a users with free unlimited storage. As for the "original picture quality" of the same level as Pixel 3, you don't know. Pixel's privacy level is very high in the Gartner report

Pixel 3a retains the popular enhanced night shot function, Pixel 3a and Phone X (a Phone) sample comparison, night scene shooting effect significantly exceeds a Phone (should mean iPhone X series

The overall design of the Pixel 3a continues the style of the big brother Pixel 3 series. The entry price is only half of the flagship model, and the 3a starting price is $399. It retains the headphone jack and is available in three colors: bright black, white, and a little purple.


Google said that it hopes that technology can help most people, not a few, so the new Pixel products will be very close to the people. This is the first time that Google announced the new Pixel smartphones during the I/O Developers Conference (rather than at the hardware conference in the second half of the year). They are Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

Hub Max will be available for sale in the summer, $229. The original Nest Hub price was lowered to $129

Of course, for many people, Hub Max is a great digital photo frame. Or you can think of it as akitchenTV, music player, etc. The rear speakers are very shocking, and you can pause the music by waving your hand!

Google Home Hub has been renamed to Nest Hub, and the camera on Home Max can be used like any Nest Camera. You can use it to implement a Google Duo video call. In the era of privacy first, its camera can be fully controlled to turn on or off.




Rick Osterloh, who is in charge of the hardware, took the stage. Let’s first take a look at an introduction video from Google Home. Representing these smart devices in the video makes the family a warm nest. Rick said that Google is simplifying everything further, hoping to put all the products under Nest. Now, Nest will become the main brand of Google Smart Home.


The third beta version of Android Q (beta 3) will be available on 21 devices from 12 OEMs (and all Pixel models). Later this year, this number will double.

You can use this mode to eliminate useful things that will distract you, such as news, emails, etc., which seems to be different from the Do Not Disturb mode. In this mode, you can eliminate the applications that will distract you, such as news, emails, etc., which seems to be different from the Do Not Disturb mode. Family Link is also split and downloaded separately, but the parental control function is also already Built into the operating system.

The new system also incorporates a feature that manages time - the Focus Mode focus mode. They will only be triggered on reboot (a total of 14 modules), including the ever-expanding media components. The “focus mode” is also very attractive. In short, it can disable almost all apps that distract you.

In Android Q, privacy has risen to the highest priority. You can turn each setting on or off, and the location data can be clearly seen. It also alerts you when you don't want to use it. Of course, the ability to enable location information when the app is open is a bit late. If the company was introduced a few years ago, it will definitely lead to even greater repercussions.

Google emphasizes that this is a "machine learning on the device". This method is extremely user-friendly, because the data does not leave the phone, you can completely control the content you share and the objects you share. In Gartner's latest security report, Android scored the highest score in 26 categories in 30 categories. [For iOS old users, obviously want to see the full comparison report]

Smart Reply is now available for all IM apps on Android. In addition, the function will give corresponding operational suggestions, such as getting an address and passing it to the Map App to open it. Google emphasizes that this is a kind of "machine learning on the device."

Live Captions full-featured demo, all in offline mode. No audio stream is being sent to the cloud, which Google says is a system-level feature. It supports every app

Android Q supports 5G networks. With the advent of the 5G era, Android Q will obviously introduce many specialized optimizations.


Stephanie Cuthbertson is introducing the collapsible interactive experience, and the current presentation is very similar to the App Continuity that Google helped Fold build.


Next up is the time of Android 10 Q, with more than 2.5 billion Android active devices. It has three main themes - innovation, security and privacy, and digital health.

Google launched a new project called Project Euphonia to help tell the story of ALS and other aphasias. Google wants all voice interactive devices to understand everyone they talk to. Machine learning models can get data sets from people who speak or communicate differently, training their models in a more inclusive way. Google works hard on all of these real-time conversation interfaces to make it more inclusive.




Google is working on Live Transcribe, a software designed for people with hearing impairments. Thanks to the latest advances in speech recognition technology, Google has finally brought this implementation. Obviously, this feature makes it easy for users to make voice calls through real-time subtitles when it is inconvenient. The function is completely realized in the local operation, very amazing


"Federal Data" is a new machine learning algorithm that does not require the collection of metadata on the device. “We don’t need to send data to the cloud, we integrate the machine learning model on every device and send the latter (instead of data) to the cloud for computing”. With the addition of this new technology, Gboard input method You can learn a variety of new words without having to drill down into the data itself. However, Pichai once again said that the feature is still in its early stages (it seems to be early every fifteen minutes).


Based on the existing 1 billion Android devices, Google is now making 2-step verification more convenient and secure. In addition, Google's protection of security keys has also been introduced directly into the Android system, making 2-step verification more convenient. "We want to do more for the user, but as time goes by, our data will be less and less."

Google Maps welcomes a new privacy model, and your search and travel information will no longer appear in history. In algorithm-driven services like YouTube and Google Search, you obviously don't want to be personally recommended by everything.


In short, if the data set is not good enough, the machine learning engine can't notice what should be done when building the model. To this end, Google is creating a whole new set of content that lets the machine tell you which variables are being looked at, and then you can tell the model to ignore the variable.

Sundar uses some very appropriate metaphors to explain why machine learning models and artificial intelligence behave so hard to understand. Such as monochrome pixels, zebra stripes, data-driven small details, and large picture reasoning.


At the same time, Google is also working to improve the transparency of the machine learning model. While developing technology, Google always protects privacy and security, and Google wants to ensure that its AI model does not reinforce the prejudice that exists in the world. In response to these problems, Google engineers are developing and researching a new model TCAV.



Sundar returned to the stage and once again summed up how Google is helping people around the world through technology. He said: "We have been discussing the creation of a Google that is more helpful to people. This is very important. Whether you are a professor at Stanford University or a student from Indonesia, Google is doing its best to do this."


In addition, Scott Huffman talks about the personalized car experience, enabling the Google Assistant Driving Mode via the "Hey Google, let's drive" voice command. Embracing Google's family bucket, your daily life, travel, work, and entertainment can obviously become more joyful. This feature will be available for all supported Android smartphones this summer. You can completely handle any self-driving journey without any additional apps.

Interestingly, Google explained to users why artificial intelligence would recommend something. This is quite different from previous search engine-style work. The answer to the question is no longer obscure, but can be more personalized. Information feedback is tailored to the customer's personal information and needs. In short, Google introduced a new feature called "personalized reference." You can edit or remove this information at any time in your Google Assistant settings.

Let's take a look at the new "personalized" experience. For example, Scott Huffman presents his own tailored dinner recipes. The system for you can recommend recipes, podcasts, events, based on your personal preferences.


By porting the AI ??model to the device, Google is envisioning a "paradigm shift." It can do zero delays, operations like turning on a flashlight, all offline. The new Pixel machine later this year will obviously integrate this exciting new feature.

You don't have to say Hey Google every time. She can do “continuous conversations.” You can even let voice share and let AI help you share a photo. You can even voice your flight itinerary. The voice triggers the mail app, and then the whole voice input, the recognition accuracy rate is exciting. The live demo was not stuck. You can see that the demo beauty sent and edited an email completely, and the reply can even be underlined.

The live female assistant demonstrates the new features in real time. With the advancement of deep learning technology, the 100GB voice learning model has been reduced to 0.5GB, which can be carried into the device. The whole voice is told, no need to manually click on the screen, you can see that the system is extremely fast.

Scott Huffman took the stage to talk about "If you bring the AI ??technology that drives the Assistant directly to your phone." If it's so fast, it's obviously slow by typing.


When it was first launched last year, Duplex had caused some controversy. But now it seems that if the right place is used, this technology is quite beneficial to humanity. Now, Google has announced an early feature preview -- using Google Assistant to help you fill out forms on the Web. You can make a request directly to the Assistant to book a car that can be used throughout the country. The Assistant can fill the website form directly with your personal information. After thoughtful consideration and feedback from businesses and users, Google will announce more details later this year.


Sundar Pichai returns to the stage and tells the latest developments in Duplex's artificial intelligence voice services. Duplex has been opened in 44 states and has received positive feedback from many small and micro enterprise users. Earlier, Google has previewed a CallJoy artificial intelligence voice customer service for small and micro enterprises in a video. For example, if you get a calendar reminder, you need to rent a car for the next trip.

On the entry or mid-range phones, you can use on-board machine learning technology, which is very useful for areas without high-speed mobile network coverage. Even if you don't know how to read, Android phones can help her easily recognize and read text. This function has supported dozens of functions. In languages, the code is only 100KB more, so it supports many end devices that sell for as little as $35.

Obviously, Google hopes to showcase its latest technological advances in text-to-speech, computer vision, translation, etc. After 20 years of technology precipitation, they are finally better integrated into the search function. Google is leveraging the power of its advanced technology to help people around the world [the following is a video from India]

Google may place the Google Lens button on the right side of the search bar on the Android home screen, near the microphone. For visually impaired people, Lens can help them identify the various signage and then read it out loud.


You can accurately identify real-world famous paintings, animals and plants, furniture items, etc. in the AR suite, and the experience of visiting the restaurant to see the menu has become different. Soon, you can take the camera to the menu and wait for the content to be active. Although the arrival time of these augmented reality features has not been disclosed, we believe that they will come one after another.

Next up is Google Lens, which is built into Google Assistant, Google Photos, and the Camera app. Under the blessing of Lens, Google will help users search the entire world, just as it does to retrieve billions of web pages on the Web.


versusMicrosoftofHololensUnlike the demo, Google put the AR shark directly on the stage.

Next, Aparna Chennapragada took the stage to talk about the progress of visual search. Google Search introduces the AR camera function. You can search for New Balance's 3D shoe styles by searching. You can directly add the searched 3D model to an AR space. For example, you will have a new search shopping experience.



The latest features of Google News will be added to the search


Committed to creating a Google that is more helpful to everyone, the search function as Google's foundation is clearly a major change. When you search for "black holes," search engines use different machine learning techniques to showcase relevant content.


Google I/O has its own AR map, and Pichai reveals that several eggs are hidden inside for participants to look for. Google's mission is "more helpful" and "finished work" to help everyone grow knowledge, be more successful, healthier and happier.

He said: "Google's goal is to organize information around the world so that people around the world can easily and practically access it." Google will turn from a company that "helps you find the answer" to a company that "helps you get the job done."


Google CEO Sundar Pichai took the stage to give a speech, wearing a Wear OS smart watch on his hand. Under the blessing of AI technology, Sundar Pichai's tone of action seems to be easy, and Pichai's keynote rhythm seems to be more comfortable than in the past.


There are still 5 minutes from the start of this conference. Sundar Pichai will bring us the keynote speech of I/O 2019. There will be many exciting contents waiting for us in the next three days. The highlight of this conference should be the release of Pixel 3A and 3A XL.


People who participated in this Google I/O Developer Conference were very excited. There are both human DJs and artificial intelligence-based DJs on the scene. The sound of AI sounds very much like Eliza in 1985. This AI will follow DJ's dance moves to match the right music, but it doesn't match the beat. There are still 20 minutes from the start of this conference.

There will be two keynote speeches today, in which the consumer-oriented speech will start at 1 am Beijing time, and the keynote speech for developers will start at 4 am Beijing time. The local weather was cloudy, although the editorial team of the foreign media The Verge arrived at the scene very early, but was told that it was not the first batch, and the site had already discharged a long line.

Android Q

According to the previous update cycle, Android  The beta version of Q will be open this month, and the official version will be accompanied by Pixel in October this year. The 4 series flagship was officially released. First of all, in terms of naming, there are many desserts starting with the letter Q, but they seem to be mostly from markets outside the United States. I don’t know if local consumers are familiar with them, including Qurabiya (almond muffins) and Quindim (Brazil coconut cakes). Queen  Of Puddings (Queen of Pudding), Quesito (Puerto Rican Cheese), Quince (wood pear) and more.

From the current release of Android Q Beta 2, the biggest improvement is interactive gestures, almost andiPhonesame. Slide the pill button to the left to return to the last used app, swipe up and hold to enter the multitasking view, and the entire gesture transition animation has no delay and the interaction is smoother.

In addition, Google is testing an intimate "card pop-up" feature designed to optimize the experience of adding contacts through third-party apps. Obviously, this feature can eliminate the trouble of frequently switching front and back applications.

If you are a raw powder, Android Q is still worth a look, because you should get some features that you couldn't use before, such as screen recording, dark theme, etc. (already implemented in other custom UI). By the way, there is an unfortunate news that Android Q should still not join the long screen capture feature. No surprise, the Android Q beta will support more Android after the conference.Mobile phoneBut you need to brush the machine yourself.

Cloud game Stadia

Last month, Google unveiled a new basedcloud serviceThe game platform Google Stadia, the purpose is to let players play 3A masterpiece on any device, all the operations are carried out by the cloud, relying on the network to transfer the game to the player's device in real time, which seems to be a tentacle in the upcoming 5G. And the way the game is played.

Stadia has only one requirement for player devices, supports Chrome, and has a network connection. In other words, in theory, as long as the network quality is good enough, players can play real 3A masterpieces with uncompromising picture quality and operation delay on devices with weak performance. Currently confirmed support for the game "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey" (Assassin's  Creed Odyssey) and Doom: Enternal.

However, there are still a few mysteries about Stadia. We don't know if Stadia will adopt a subscription model or how much it costs. The game classifications on Stadia are also a mystery. In March, when Google announced Stadia at the Game Developers Conference, the company said it would provide more details in "this summer." Therefore, it is more likely that Google will also disclose some information related to Stadia in advance at the upcoming I/O Developers Conference.

Google Assistant (Google Assistant)

In previous years, Google also introduced new features for Google Assistant at the I/O Developers Conference. Last year, the new features included a new assistant voice that required the child to say "please" when requesting the assistant and to ask the assistant two questions at the same time. But the real focus of last year's conference was Duplex, an artificial intelligence that can talk like humans.

Duplex can pause like a normal human after a few words, and also say "?", "?" and other modal particles. The significance of Duplex is to let software make calls instead of humans, such as booking a restaurant. Once the product is released, it has been a huge controversy. This year, as Google continues to try to push the service to more people and devices, Google is likely to still release multiple updates for the Assistant.

Virtual reality and augmented reality

Three years ago, Google launched the Daydream virtual reality platform at the I/O Developers Conference. On this platform, people can put their mobile phones into VR machines by putting special headsets on their mobile phones. But recently, Google has been silent on Daydream products and virtual reality.


But it is not the case with augmented reality. For example, Google launched a technology called Lens at the developer conference two years ago. This tool allows users to search for item information via the phone camera. For example, when your mobile phone camera is aimed at a restaurant, you can see other people's online reviews of the restaurant.

If Google launches some new features or products for AR or VR this year, it is also expected.

Pixel 3a Collection

According to well-known breaking person Roland  Quandt's tweet information shows that Pixal 3a will be equipped with a resolution of 2220*1080 at 5.6 inchesOLEDscreen. In terms of hardware, Pixel 3a is equipped with 4GB of memory, 3000mAh capacity battery, Titan M security chip and Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor. 64GB Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL retail prices are $399 and $479, respectively.

On the camera side, the back of the fuselage is equipped with a 12.2 megapixel single camera with optical and electronic image stabilization. The front of the fuselage is 8 million pixels from the camera head, capable of shooting 30fps4Kcamera. Interestingly, Pixel  3a's promotional materials show support for fast charging, long battery life, Night Vision mode and portrait mode.

But natural Pixel  The 3a series will also shrink. First, the headset is no longer included in the package, but the 3.5mm headphone port will remain. At Pixel 3/3 Google offers a pair of USB-C headphones in XL, but the Pixel 3 series does not have a traditional headphone port. Also Pixel The 3a series does not yet support wireless charging, so Google will cut this feature to reduce costs.

Nest Hub Max

Last month, Google seemed to have accidentally leaked its own products. The company mentioned Nest on the online store website.  Home Hub, the description includes the product with a "10-inch HD display and stereo speakers." According to reports, the device is also equipped with a built-in Nest Cam. Over the past two years, Google has typically released several hardware products at its annual "Google Manufacturing" campaign. However, it is not uncommon to release important hardware products at the I/O Developers Conference. Three years ago, Google released the initial Google at the I/O Developers Conference.  Home smart speaker.


The rumors that Google will launch the mid-range version of its flagship phone have long been rumored, and the new product is said to be named Pixel 3a. In another inadvertent "disclosure incident" in Google's online store, the company mentioned "Pixel 3a - New Products" on the mobile phone product page of the website, and the content was immediately deleted.

Earlier this week, Google’s online store website mentioned “May 7th, Pixel World has a major update”; this day coincides with the day of the I/O Developers Conference.
