Google’s goofy Move Mirror AI Experiment matches your poses to photos

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Google's AI Experiments are fun ways for the company to show off its advances in machine learning while also collecting additional data to further its research. It's got a new one out today: Move Mirror watches you move through your computer's webcam (with permission, that is) and uses AI trickery to match your pose against a database of tens of thousands of photos.

The Experiment uses a machine learning model called Posenet, which recognizes the overall position of a human subject by analyzing and adding up where different parts and joints are in a photo or video.

Google posts new Duplex demo to show how Assistant will identify itself on the phone

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

One of the most interesting, and some might say unsettling moments at Google I/O 2018 was the demo of Google Duplex. We saw how Assistant could call a business and get you a reservation by talking to a real person. Google even added in weird human ticks like "umm." Now, there's a new demo video of Duplex, and this time Assistant identified itself.

Google's demo at I/O rightly concerned some people.

Microsoft adds AI-powered visual search to Bing app

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Odds are you have Google Lens in your phone as part of Assistant. If you're not satisfied with Lens, there's an alternative from Microsoft. The Bing app has been updated with AI-powered visual search. So, it's Lens but from Microsoft.

Like Assistant, Microsoft's visual search feature uses a neural network trained with many bytes of sample images. At the end of the training process, the system can look at new images and (sometimes) figure out what they are.

Google introduces ethical standards for AI use

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Just earlier today, Google's Sundar Pichai laid down the company's new AI manifesto. While it may just seem like a more verbose response to the recent military AI contracts, in many ways, the new set of principles are more accurately the answer to questions initially raised last year by Sergey Brin in Alphabet's 2017 Founders' letter. In it, Brin speculated on the impact of machine learning and AI, as well as the problems and expectations Google had in developing the new technology.

Google releases standalone Lens app in Play Store

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Google Lens is available on most Android phones in some fashion, but now there's another way to access Google's computer vision platform. There's a new standalone Lens app in the Play Store. There aren't any new features in the app—it just opens a viewfinder with Lens to identify objects in the real world... maybe. You know, it's Lens.

The app appears to be compatible with every phone running Marshmallow or higher.

Google won’t renew its contract to develop AI for US military drones

Friday, June 1st, 2018

Over the past few months, Google has attracted criticism for its involvement in 'Project Maven.' The news broke in March that Google was working with the United States Department of Defense to develop artificial intelligence for analyzing footage from military drones. Google downplayed its involvement in the program, saying it was only helping the DoD use the company's open-source TensorFlow software.

The news sparked outrage in the tech community, and even inside Google.

Samsung wants to have Bixby in all of its smart home products by 2020

Friday, May 18th, 2018

Bixby is one of the less popular voice assistants on the market today, with most of its mentions in the news concerning Samsung not allowing Galaxy owners to disable it. In spite of that, the company is on a mission to put it in more and more of its products. Samsung has announced that it'll be putting Bixby in all of its IoT (Internet of Things) products by 2020.

Samsung has already put Bixby in phones (obviously), TVs, refrigerators, and washers, but apparently that's not enough.

Google Photos is rolling out automatic brightness fix, image rotation, and expanded archive suggestions

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

New prompts to automatically adjust brightness, rotate images, and archive screenshots and pictures of things like labels, menus, and receipts are popping up in the Google Photos app and web interface. We saw this coming in a Photos teardown earlier this month.

Brightness fixes are, obviously, suggested on photos where the brightness is a bit off, and the results can be impressive. Interestingly, changes to RAW photos are saved as a copy, whereas they'll save on top of the original with the option to revert the photo to its original state for other formats, the way regular edits in Google Photos do.

Email ‘Nudges’ are rolling out in the new Gmail

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Gmail recently got its biggest redesign in years, but not all of the announced features were live right out of the gate. Today, Google has started deploying the new Gmail's "Nudge" feature, which is designed to help you reply to emails you missed or ignored like the lazy procrastinator you are.

Nudge is sort of like a snoozed email, but it happens all on its own. If Gmail sees an email that it thinks you should act on, it can bump it up to the top of your inbox.
