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.

Second Generation TPU: The new TPU chip basically makes building AI on Google's platform faster and more efficient, which should only further its lead in AI/ML and further build out its cloud computing platform, likely already best-in-class. 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.

Oh, and Google Assistant will be available on iOS. You will receive a dot appearing when there is a new notification. The really smart innovation here is that if your partner or housemate says "call mum", it'll call theirs, rather than yours.

Google's voice assistant is generally considered more powerful than Siri, because it is a third-party integration into Apple devices.

Google also announced that it will be launching two low-priced virtual reality (VR) headsets made by HTC and Lenovo for it Daydream VR platform. Standalone VR headsets will have no cords, mobile phones, or PCs required, with all specifications built into the device.

"Integrating our full suite of connected appliances with the Google Assistant makes it easier for owners to control their appliances and get on with their day". Picture-in-picture mode will allow smartphone users to be more productive on the go (imagine watching a video while texting about it with a colleague), and battery life will get a boost with some underlying improvements to the software.
