The American technology group Google has been doing intensive research in the field of artificial intelligence for years. Now it has presented another building block in their effort to the public. The focus was on video conferences that look lifelike and software that can hold conversations independently. With this new technology, Google has demonstrated that it wants to have a significant role in the future technology.
At the developer conference, Google also gave an outlook on the new version of Android. At the same time, the group presented new functions that should ensure an even better protection of privacy for its numerous services in the future. For example, you will be able to set up a folder in the gallery app that can be protected with a password. Such a function could be helpful for confidential documents.
LaMDA Talks to People
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are topics that Google has been talking about for a long time. The corresponding innovations attracted a lot of attention at the presentation. For example, the new software LaMDA showed that it could hold an entire conversation in an independent interaction with a person. Here the software does not use the answers programmed in advance, but rather creates them based on the information available. The software showed two different dialogues.
The Entire Knowledge of the World in Voice Input
In addition, LaMDA took on two different roles. At first, it pretended to be the planet Pluto and then pretended to be a paper plane. In addition, the software answered questions on the respective topic. The head of Google emphasized at the presentation that the company would continue to research this technology. Google wants to incorporate the results into various products in the future. That also includes Google Assistant. In this way, the fundamental knowledge about the world will be made available via voice output. That would bring numerous advantages for some user groups. In the future, you would only have to provide approximate information about a route and the software would then select the correct way.
Innovation Drives the Business Areas
But the research of artificial intelligence in Google is far from over. The so-called Project Starline is just another example of that. This system records people and the lighting conditions in their surroundings with more than twelve cameras and sensors. You can see the images on newly developed screens. These photos reproduce all details exceptionally well and create the impression of a hyper-realistic video conference.
For the first time, the innovations presented to the public have shown once again that Google is unwilling to give up its technological leadership anytime soon. The group, which started as a search engine, has long since expanded its interests into numerous other areas. With the operating systems of smartphones, the map service Google Maps, or new artificial intelligence, Google does not stop impressing the users..
