A vast range of cutting-edge innovations and improvements were displayed at the yearly Google I/O developer conference, all of which were intended to improve user experiences across numerous platforms.
By integrating cutting-edge technologies for online protection and offering new generative AI capabilities for search, Google highlighted its commitment to enhancing user experiences and safeguarding user safety.
Significant improvements for Android, Pixel devices, and Google Photos were also released. The presentation of PaLM 2, Google’s most recent generative language model, was a conference highlight.
In terms of mathematics, coding, logic, multilingual translation, and natural language creation, this ground-breaking model outperforms earlier language models.
Along with these developments, Google reaffirmed its dedication to responsible AI, pledging to tackle urgent social issues like climate change and flood forecasts while upholding moral AI standards.
Here are the 14 significant announcements made at Google I/O that we thought would be of interest to you:
PaLM 2, Next Generation Language Model
1.PaLM 2, a new generation language model from Google, is intended to enhance language translation, reasoning, and coding abilities.
The model has received more training on multilingual text and exhibits superior logic, common sense reasoning, and mathematical skills.
Furthermore, PaLM 2 is more effective and quicker than earlier models because it was pre-trained on datasets of publicly accessible source code.
PaLM 2 will come in four sizes—Gecko, Otter, Bison, and Unicorn—from smallest to largest, making it adaptable for a variety of use cases.
25 new Google products and features will be powered by the model, which includes Bard and Med-PaLM 2, a medical competency model that can answer queries and summarise key points from lengthy medical literature.
2. Expansion of Bard
With the addition of the Japanese and Korean languages and the intention to cover the top 40 languages in the globe, the backlog has been eliminated, making Bard available in English in more than 180 nations and territories.
Google will put a strong emphasis on upholding high standards for quality, local subtleties, and adherence to AI principles as the platform grows. Read more here.
Using Google Lens, Google is making it simpler to provide Bard visual cues. By offering aesthetically instructive answers to queries, this text and image integration in Bard hopes to improve the user experience.
3.Developer Features for Bard
Based on developer input, Google is introducing three additional methods to use Bard: giving you the source of specific code blocks, making code citations even more precise.
This also applies to citing narrative content from other websites, adding export to Replit, and introducing the Dark theme to Bard to make it easier to see in low light.
4.Export to Docs and Gmail
Google exports Bard’s responses to Google Docs or Gmail to make it simpler and more seamless for users to carry on with their work. The formatting is preserved so users don’t have to copy, paste, and reformat Bard’s responses in order to continue editing straight in Docs or Gmail.
5.Integration into Apps
While preserving user control over privacy settings, Bard will integrate with a number of Google products and services, including Docs, Drive, Gmail, Maps, and more.
In order to provide users with as many options as possible, the platform will also interact with outside businesses and partners, such as Khan Academy for education, Kayak for travel, Instacart for groceries, and Wolfram for computational expertise.
6.Integrating generative AI across all the Workspace apps
One may write, organise, visualise, speed up workflows, have deeper meetings, and do a lot more with the additional features. Google refers to this potent new method of operation as Duet AI for Workspace.
Google is integrating generative AI into Slides and introducing the generative AI experience to Gmail on mobile so that users can quickly and simply generate original graphics with only a few words.
With automated data classification and the production of unique tables, the generative AI will assist with data analysis and action on Sheets.
7.Simplifying Shopping with Generative AI
Google uses generative AI to speed up and greatly simplify online shopping by giving customers a quick overview of important criteria to take into account while looking for a purchase.
This new generative AI shopping experience, which is based on Google’s Shopping Graph, provides customers with a smooth and well-informed decision-making process.
Through Search Labs, a new platform that enables users to explore and interact with early-stage experiments in Search, consumers now have access to Google’s sophisticated generative AI capabilities.
Users can test out the Search Generative Experience (SGE) on Chrome desktop and the Google App in the US (available in English at launch) by signing up for Search Labs.
Magic Compose, a new creative AI-powered Messages by Google tool, can help you give your chats an extra dash of personality.
Based on the context of your communications, the function suggests possible responses and even has the ability to change the writing style you use. It will be released in July.
10.New AI features in Android
With the impending Android 14 upgrade from Google (scheduled for later this year), consumers will be able to further customise their smartphone experiences.
Material Users can customise their lock screen with additional shortcuts, clocks, and a monochromatic theme thanks to you customisation.
The update now includes a variety of wallpaper alternatives, such as generative AI wallpapers, cinematic wallpapers, and emoji wallpapers that let users create custom designs depending on their tastes.
Google is introducing Night Mode and 10-bit HDR video compatibility to well-known social apps like Instagram in order to improve social media.
The Ultra HDR feature, which is part of the Android 14 release, promises amazing photo quality and raises the bar for smartphone photography.
11.Reimagine Your Photos with Magic Editor in Google Photos
Users will be able to create intricate photo modifications with ease using the new experimental editing tool, Magic Editor, which is driven by generative AI.
Users who want more control over how their images turn out can choose alter particular elements of an image, such as the subject, sky, or backdrop.
12.Features and Updates to Improve Trust and Safety Online
The new features and improvements from Google are intended to increase online security and give consumers dependable access to trusted material and information.
The “About This Image” tool helps users evaluate the reliability of visual content found online by providing important contextual information, such as when an image was first indexed by Google, its original appearance, and other online occurrences.
Google is also expanding its Content Safety API to include potential child sexual abuse material in video content, addressing a critical safety concern as video files account for nearly 50% of all files reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
13.Spam view in Drive
Google’s ongoing efforts to protect Gmail users from unwanted messages, which currently block over 99.9% of spam, phishing, and malware, are now being extended to Google Drive with “Spam View”, a new feature that simplifies the process of separating and reviewing files, allowing users to identify potential spam and stay safe from unwanted or abusive content.
Google Drive will automatically classify content into the Spam View, similar to Gmail’s current system, ensuring that users are protected from encountering dangerous or unwanted files.
14.New additions to the Pixel family
