Pixel 3’s Top Shot can choose a better photo than the one you took, and here’s how it works

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL have some of (if not the) best cameras of the year, and paired with that generally impressive performance are a handful of pretty nifty software features. One of them, called Top Shot, makes those great photos even better by helping out when you make a mistake and snap a photo just a bit too early or too late. And while we knew a little bit about how Top Shot worked, there were pretty large gaps in our knowledge.

You can now ask Google Assistant for flight delay predictions

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Everyone knows the December holiday season is generally the worst time to travel, but most of us do it anyway. Those of you anticipating the frustrations of air travel this time of year might be pleased to know, however, that Google is rolling out a few features for Google Assistant, Flights, and Search to make the journey a bit more bearable. Among the most useful new features: Google's flight delay predictions (revealed early this year) have now come to Assistant, meaning you can ask "Hey Google, is my flight on time?" and the AI will use historic flight status data and machine learning to make a prediction even before the airline your traveling with confirms the delay.

‘Semi-Conductor’ browser experiment makes you the maestro of an AI orchestra

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

Have you ever wanted to conduct an orchestra? Okay, probably not — or at least, not that you'd admit. But if the idea of waving your arms around in private to the tune of an AI-powered symphony tickles your fancy (and how could it not), Google's latest Semi-Conductor browser experiment could be your literal jam.

It works simply enough: Fire up the experiment in a browser, give it access to your webcam, stand far enough back that your outstretched arms fit in the frame, and start conducting (or, in my case, flailing).

AI will soon decide what you hear in Google Assistant news briefings

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

The news reports you get from Google Assistant are about to get a whole lot smarter, or so says Google. The same artificial intelligence that powers the Google News app is coming to Assistant. Google pitches the new system as a way to get quick, personalized news in audio form throughout the day.

Google worked with publishers like the Associated Press and South China Morning Post to develop the new system, which builds a custom news "playlist" each time you ask Assistant to read the news.

Lens is now available on Google Images for mobile devices

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

Last month, Google announced a pile of changes to both Search and Google Images, including coming Lens integration. The feature would allow interested parties to interact with media in Google Images to learn more about its content, via the magic of AI. If you've used Lens on your phone before, this is pretty similar, but applied to content in Google Images. According to a blog post today and our own confirmation, the feature is now rolling out.

This is how Super Res Zoom on the Google Pixel 3 works

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Google's latest flagships are here, and as with the previous two generations, the headline feature is the camera. Yet more computational magic has made its way into the camera on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, including something called Super Res Zoom. It's practically the 'enhance' feature we've all been waiting for, but how does it work?

Ryan touched on this in his Pixel 3 review — he was pleasantly surprised by the results, even if they aren't quite as good as with optical zoom — and now a post on the Google AI Blog goes deeper into the mechanics of the feature.

Essential is reportedly working on an AI phone that operates through voice commands

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

While Essential's first device has a cult following among those who prioritize quick Android updates, it became clear in May that it would never see a follow-up. A report from Bloomberg revealed that the company had canceled a second Essential Phone and put itself up for sale. However, over the past several months, the company has quietly chugged along, continuing to push out lightning-fast security patches. Now, a new report from Bloomberg states that the company is indeed working on a second device — but it's not at all like its first product.

Google Duplex rolls out starting next month on Pixel phones

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

One of the most impressive (and unsettling) I/O moments happened earlier this year when Google showed off Duplex, an AI chatbot that can place calls for you like a robotic personal assistant. Google wouldn't confirm its plans for Duplex at the time, but it's almost ready for the general public. Duplex is hitting Pixel phones starting next month, but it won't be available everywhere.

The idea behind Duplex is that you don't always want to call a human on the phone to make an appointment or book a reservation.

Facebook Marketplace turns two and gains user ratings

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Almost as soon as dial-up came to homes, people began buying and selling things online. eBay and Craigslist have actually been around since 1995, and it would be over 20 years until a competing service could take them on. Facebook Marketplace became that rival and this week it turned two years old. The company claims that a third of its users buy or sell on Marketplace every month.

On its birthday, the service is introducing user ratings, which many would agree was long overdue.
