What about politics that freak out people

Google revolution is freaking out the tech world

As part of the keynote at the start of its developer conference I / O, Google gave a first look at Android 12, among other things. Since Android is the most widely used smartphone operating system in the world, the interest in it was of course great. But the actual highlights of the presentation had to do with Google's actual favorite topic, machine learning or artificial intelligence (AI). Here the IT giant showed dialogues with computers and the video communication of the future. And the developments in this area are simply revolutionary. The tech world is freaking out. With the presentation of "Lamda" & "Poject Starline", Google boss Sundar Pichai (picture) landed a real coup.

With "Lamda" a software was demonstrated that can lead a conversation with a person. The answers are not given, but are generated by the program on the basis of existing information, stressed Google boss Sundar Pichai. Google presented two examples of a dialogue: The software first slipped into the role of the planet Pluto and then a paper airplane. She answered questions about whether there have already been visitors to the planet or how far the paper airplane has flown before.

The Lamda dialog technology is still being researched, but over time it should be incorporated into various products such as the Google Assistant voice assistant, said Pichai. The group wants to make its knowledge of the world as a whole more and more usable through language. In the future, for example, it should be sufficient to tell the map service that you would like to take a route with a beautiful view of mountains to your destination, so that an appropriate route can be selected.

AI is also used in "Project Starline", with which Google wants to revolutionize video conversations. With the system, people and lighting conditions are recorded by more than a dozen cameras and sensors. The images are transferred to newly developed screens that are supposed to reproduce details in a particularly realistic manner.

A journalist from the magazine "Wired", who was able to test the "Project Starline" in advance, confirmed the impression that the interlocutor was sitting across from you. At the same time, the effect diminishes as soon as you do not look at the display from the right place, it limits. According to Google, the technology has been worked on for several years - and more years of development are needed.
