Google I/O 2018 Complete Wrap Up: Everything You Need To Know

Google Assistant in new countries

Google has bundled the Android P with lots of features and major enhancements under the hood.

The demo was called "horrifying" by Zeynep Tufekci, an associate professor at the University of North Carolina who regularly comments on the ways technology and society impact on each other.

"We understand and value the discussion around Google Duplex".

The demonstrations at Google I/O, an annual event for creators of Google-compatible products, showed how big technology companies are positioning themselves for a lucrative artificial intelligence revolution while grappling with heightened scrutiny about their societal influence.

The Google Assistant will also receive a range of new voice updates later this year, including the voice of singer John Legend, while the Google Lens camera tool can now be used as part of navigation in Google Maps. Furthermore, in what looks to be an effort to distance itself from the ever increasing questions over the bankruptcy of ethics and morality in Silicon Valley, the tech giant is also promising to make its voice assistant more responsible than ever.

Germick did agree, however, that Google's aim was to make the assistant human enough to keep users engaged.

Warner Bros. Dates 'Sherlock Holmes 3' For Christmas 2020
Ironically, the first Sherlock Holmes movie opened in America seven days after the record-breaking first Avatar film in 2009. The director is now busy with the " Aladdin " live-action from Disney, which will be released on May 24, 2019 in the US.

God of War photo mode is here for all dads of boy
All you need to do is launch God of War and make sure the game is updated to version 1.2 to enable photo mode . To control the Photo Mode camera , just use the Left and Right Thumb Sticks to navigate around the scene .

The voices aim to sound more natural and will include pauses that convey meaning.

But even though this huge leap in technology from where we are, it raises questions on whether this is ethically right and will it cause problems in the society later down the line. The company said it still needs to test how people respond to it. Google consciously decided against giving the assistant a real human background.

Thus far, the technology behind Google Duplex only supports three use cases: making restaurant reservations, obtaining a businesses' opening hours and arranging appointments at a hair salon.

The demo featured a new Google Assistant feature - called Google Duplex - that the company will launch on a limited basis this summer. The new versions of Gmail, Google News, Google Play and Google Home all use Material Theming to create a "cohesive, branded experience". Therefore, they have been able to provide the latest Developer Preview of Android P on their devices, despite offering customised iterations of Android on their products.

This could be a dystopian vision, but it doesn't have to be that way, the Google scientist concluded.
