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.

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-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.
