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 announces 2018 AIY Projects kits with Raspberry Pi Zero included, new companion Android app

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

STEM projects and DIY kits to build smart little computers or sensors are popping everywhere these days. In a world that's fast embracing technology in every aspect of life, introducing the maximum number of people to hardware and software development is not just fun, it's downright essential. Google's venture started with AIY Projects which introduced a Do-It-Yourself Google Assistant speaker last year. This year, AIY Projects are refreshing the previous kit and bringing a new one.

Google announces Augmented Reality Microscope platform to aid in cancer detection

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Google announced in a blog post today that it's developed a prototype for a microscope system that uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect anomalies resembling cancerous growths in tissue samples. Google is calling it the Augmented Reality Microscope (ARM) platform, and it's currently capable of identifying breast and prostate cancer, although Google says it will be able to find any other type of cancer once its model is trained for it.

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.

Google’s Scrying Pen AI Experiment will try to help you draw a cat

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Google's AI Experiments are fun showcases for feats of artificial intelligence the company's research has enabled. Scrying Pen is a new one that uses algorithms trained by data from 2016's Quick, Draw! experiment to show a path to draw one of a set of objects, like a cat or a hand.

Scrying Pen analyzes your inputs to try to predict what you'll draw next in the context of the model you've selected, displaying a number of its best guesses as to your next moves as green lines.

Apple has poached Google’s head of AI

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

In a surprise move, Google's chief of search and artificial intelligence John Giannandrea stepped down on Monday. Yesterday, it was reported that he'd been hired by Apple. Giannandrea had been with Google since its acquisition of startup Metaweb in 2010.

Metaweb was working on a "database of the world's knowledge," according to the New York Times; after its acquisition, the startup's technology was eventually folded into Google search, helping the engine answer certain questions without the user ever having to navigate to any external sites.

Google open sources image recognition AI model, VR audio tools

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Google announced this week that two of its projects are going open source. Code for both DeepLab-V3+, the latest version of Google's semantic image segmentation AI model, and Resonance Audio, Google's spatial audio SDK, is now freely available.

Semantic image segmentation is a process by which computers recognize and assign natural-language names to different objects in a photo or video—Google Photos being able to not only see your dog in a picture but also identify it as a "dog" (versus "cat" or "marmot") is the result of such a process.

LG details its Vision AI and Voice AI, which will debut on the 2018 version of the V30

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Last week we heard rumors that LG would announce an updated version of the LG V30 at Mobile World Congress, which lines up well with the previous reports that the company won't release new devices on a yearly schedule and that the expected G7 was scrapped and a new design was being worked on. The other part of the V30 leak was an emphasis on the addition of an AI of sorts called "LG Lens." LG, as it always does prior to major events, has out-leaked everyone and confirmed this by announcing a new 2018 version of the V30 which comes with new AI functionalities.

CES 2018 wrap-up: Even more things to connect to Assistant

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Two of the big trends at CES 2018 were AI and smart home stuff. The former was actually a major buzzword, and it became so overused that I stopped caring (thanks, Huawei/Honor). However, the smart home ecosystem continues to thrive and we saw a ton of new products that are launching with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. This post will focus on Assistant; you can expect the Alexa wrap-up a little bit later.

[Compress this!] Google issues a machine learning challenge to build a better JPEG

Friday, January 12th, 2018

When you navigate to a website on your expensive new Android device, or try to view an image that someone has sent you on your gorgeous Super AMOLED Quad HD display, the last thing you want is to find yourself standing there, waiting for a progress bar to crawl across the screen, or to squint angrily at the spinning loading icon as it sputters.

(Did you know that the loading icon is called a “throbber”?
