Gmail Smart Compose is going live as an ‘experimental feature’

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Gmail Smart Compose, a nifty new feature that predicts what you're going to type and fills it in with a press of the tab key, is going live. It's only available on the desktop version of the new Gmail, and to use it, you'll have to enable experimental features in Gmail's settings.

To try Smart Compose, tick the box that says "Enable experimental access" in the General tab of Gmail's settings—that option only appears if you're using the new Gmail, and I actually had to switch from new to old to new again to get it to show up.

Google Research rebranded as Google AI to convey the importance of machine learning across the company

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Google's research projects have been rolled into google.ai to create the new Google AI division. This means that Google Research is no more, and a new website has been launched alongside a renamed blog. The move unifies all of the company's advanced research efforts while explicitly pointing to the machine learning tech that underpins them.

This comes after Google appointed Jeff Dean the new head of AI last month, with Search being split off from AI in a reorganization.

Microsoft Translator gets AI-powered offline language packs

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Microsoft announced today that its Translator app now supports offline, artificial intelligence-powered translation in a handful of languages with what the company says is "the world's first Deep Neural Network-powered offline translation engine." The AI packs are considerably smaller than traditional language packs, and Microsoft says they provide higher quality translations, too.

The AI-powered language packs are available now on the Android version of the Microsoft Translator app. Microsoft says the iOS update is currently undergoing Apple's review process, and Windows device support is "coming soon."

According to Microsoft, the algorithms that power its AI translation have been optimized to the extent that they're able to run "directly on any modern device’s CPU" without requiring an internet connection.

Google’s Talk to Books lets you browse books with the help of AI

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Google launched a new experience today that it's calling Talk to Books. It's pretty much what it sounds like: the demo asks for input in the form of regular old sentences, then tries to locate logical responses to those sentences from a pool of books. In a post on its Developer Blog, Google calls Talk to Books "an entirely new way to explore books by starting at the sentence level, rather than the author or topic level."

The experiment is meant to showcase advances machine learning that let computers communicate in ways that seem natural.
