Google I/O 2018
The three day Google I/O Developers Conference opened in the United States today. Google CEO Sundar Pichai and product line leaders explained the progress of their AI, Android system, Google assistant and other products.
AI, as the theme of the conference, runs through all existing product lines of Google, including Android P, Google Maps and unmanned vehicle Waymo.
Google Android P: smart, simple, anti - addicted
This Android I/O conference has not released a new Android P operating system, using three key words to summarize this update: intelligence, simplicity and digital life.
First of all, Android P put the mobile phone in the first place and launched the battery adaptive function. By machine learning algorithms, the system can intelligently predict what App is going to be used in the next few hours, and then intelligently regulates the use of CPU, and Google staff Dave Burke says this function can effectively reduce App waking up CPU frequency 30%.
Battery adaptive function
At the same time, the machine learning algorithm also memorize the user's preference for the brightness of the equipment in different environments, and use AI to automatically help the user to adjust the brightness of the device. The accuracy rate can reach 60%, and the user can use the smartphone greatly.
Brightness intelligent adjustment function
In addition to learning and remembering the user's preference for the brightness of the phone, it can also intelligently recognize the purpose of the user's current use of mobile phones. Through a lot of data accumulation, it can identify the song you need to listen to at the moment you insert the headset.
Slices- helps users quickly use specific functions in App.
In addition, Android P also adds Slices features, which can be regarded as global search. It can find data related to the use of App, such as the distance and cost of using Lyft to taxi, and users can directly select App services.
MLKit-AI general template development tool
Google developed the AI template for this function, also called MLKit. This tool can be used not only on the Android development platform, but also on the iOS development platform.
The streamlining of Android P-
In order to make the Android system more succinct, Android P introduced gesture operation interaction logic. The main page key becomes a small white bar, clicking back to the home page, slipping out of the multitask interface, slipping around the application, slipping out of the App Desk again, and returning the key and not being canceled, only in the multitasking interface / application. The volume adjustment interface also changed, not only on the side, but also on the mute and ringing switch icon.
Dash Board- users' daily use of App
Android P added Dashboard, which aims to help users to plan the time of the use of a mobile phone to better distinguish the digital life from the real life, such as the length of a single App (to the time system, to remind the user that the reminder can be cross platform, such as watching the length of the YouTube, which records the user at the time. " The length of the viewing time of the mobile terminal and the computer side, how much time and time each application is applied, and how many reminders have been received in one day.
Android P- anti addictive mode
In order to make this model a better use, Google puts it into the Shush mode: as long as the user flip the phone screen down, all notifications will not be reminding. Finally, in order to help users reduce the time of using mobile phones before going to bed, Android P has added the Wind Down mode. The user can preset a good time. At the set time, the phone will enter the no disturb mode and automatically adjust the screen to gray mode.
First taste of Android P manufacturers (the majority of domestic manufacturers).
Android P beta will be released today, and in addition to Google Pixel, there are Nokia, Vivo, plus, millet, Sony, Essential, and Oppo, which will become the first batch of devices to try Android P.
Google Maps: Personalized Recommendation
Through the AI algorithm, now Google Map has been able to automatically add new shops to show the route changes at a certain location. In addition to telling the user how to get to the destination, if the destination is a shop, it can also tell the user the time for the shop to open, and the average length of the customer's stay in the store. It can also remind you to leave at the right time, so that there is no parking or road congestion.
Google Maps AR navigation (VPS)
It also allows different users to customize information they care about, such as what new stores are opening near their place of residence and recommend nearby delicacies
Google Maps can also use AR technology to guide users through the use of mobile cameras, computer vision and machine learning, and it can also display the location of the current location of the shop. Google calls this technology VPS (Vision Position System).
Comprehensive embodiment of Waymo:Google AI technology for unmanned vehicles
Google is the first company to invest in both driverless and AI businesses. Once machine learning, language recognition and computer vision are improved, this also means that the Google's driverless Waymo will also be promoted.
Extreme harsh environment (as shown in the lower left corner), Way Mo algorithm can still identify vehicles and roads.
In order to get Waymo unmanned vehicles on the road, Google did more than 6 million miles of testing on the road, 25 thousand cars were tested every day; at the same time, the Waymo unmanned vehicle's algorithm training used Google TPU, which improved the training efficiency by 15 times, with the help of the AI algorithm and Waymo even in the blizzard. Testing and training can continue in a bad environment. Waymo explained the results of the neural network: an unmanned vehicle can predict people or cars in advance in crossing the road, running a red light and so on, to prevent a bumping into a red light or a car at a crossroad.
A number of humanized settings in Android P can not be separated from the support of AI technology. At the same time, it also conforms to the current trend of full screen operation gestures. As for some personalized recommendation contents in Google Maps, there is a prototype in the domestic map application, but Google Maps uses AI technology to make further use of AI technology on this basis. A more personalized recommendation. The Waymo unmanned vehicle that has been on the road is further demonstrating the strong strength of Google in AI technology and technology landing.
