You could go and watch the two hour long keynote, or you could check out T3's excellent condensed notes.

Google has been showing off the fruits of its AI and machine learning research at its I/O conference. Unveiled at the recent Google I/O conference, the emojis looks incredible.

Other new features include being able to print "photo books" directly from the app, automated bundling of photos based on location and facial recognition, and suggested sharing of those photos to others. It's also prime for those in environments with slow data connections. Assistant will also recognize tickets, music, calendar appointments, and you have the ability to add the details to your calendar.

Google Assistant has its limitation as well. Now it seems Assistant has attended a butler school, and picked up some new tricks along the way.

Google placed a heavy emphasis on AI at I/O 2017, debuting an intriguing new technology called Google Lens which works with Google Assistant and Photos to identify objects in the real world. Google is making the AI assistant more conversational and giving users new input methods - you'll be able to finally type to ask Assistant questions on your phone.
