The Best and Worst From Google I/O So Far [Update: Day 2]

The first Google I/O keynote just wrapped up and Sundar Pichai & Co had lots to say. New smart home gadgets! New all-powerful AI bots! New VR goodies! Next-generation messaging apps! Dad jokes and hijinks! Whoa.

Google Home is official, and Amazon Echo should be worried

Amazon may have beaten Google to the punch, but Google’s voice technology is arguably more advanced – and will become more so after the improvement announced today at IO. It’ll be interesting to see how the devices develop in parallel.

Say 'Hello' to Allo, Google's New AI-Powered Messaging App

The bot inside Allo is known, at least for the moment, as the Google search assistant (lowercase “s,” lowercase “a”). And in Google’s grand vision, this assistant won’t just live within Allo. Later this year, sometime after Allo is released, the company says, it will also roll out a device that sits in your living room and lets you chat with the Google search assistant using your nothing but your voice. It’s called Google Home, and it’s a bit like the Echo, a device from online retail giant Amazon. With Google Home, the company says, you can not only interacts with the Google search engine and other Google services, but control other devices around the house, including TVs and stereos, thermostats and smoke detectors.

Allo is a messaging app with Google built right in

Kay says that the diversity of Android hardware precludes Google from creating an iMessage-like system that co-opts SMS — not to mention that Allo also needs to work on iOS. Instead, the plan for acquiring users for Allo seems a little, well, unformed. Rather than talk about jump-starting user growth, Fulay emphasized that Google is just focused on making a good app: "The first order of business is just nail the product... make sure we have a product people love." Kay says that "if you don't have a great product that users love and are willing to recommend to their friends, then there's no sense in worrying about distribution."

Google’s Making Its Own Chips Now. Time for Intel to Freak Out

For now, Google is using both TPUs and GPUs to run its neural nets. Hölzle declined to go into specifics on how exactly Google was using its TPUs, except to say that they handles “part of the computation” needed to drive voice recognition on Android phones. But he said that Google would be releasing a paper describing the benefits of its chip and that Google will continue to design new chips that handle machine learning in other ways. Eventually, it seems, this will push GPUs out of the equation. “They’re already going away a little,” Hölzle says. “The GPU is too general for machine learning. It wasn’t actually built for that.”

What to Expect at Google I/O 2016

The Android Nexus Each year, Google gives developers their first crack at the latest version of Android. This year will be different, because Android N , Google's newest iteration of its mobile operating system, has been in the hands of developers for months. I doubt we'll see any big surprises for Android as an OS, and this year's I/O documentation talks a lot about extra time set aside for developers to work with Googlers on their code. My bet is that Google wants this year's conference to kickstart a new era in Android development.

Foreign hackers reportedly spying on US presidential candidates

Enlisting hackers to work for foreign governments isn't entirely new. Both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections dealt with similar activity. Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, says officials from Homeland Security and the FBI are working to improve campaign security, but experts say the Trump and Clinton campaigns are particularly vulnerable.

Apple is opening an app design and development accelerator in India

Apple is increasing its focus on India after announcing plans to open its first developer center in the country. The new ‘iOS App Design and Development Accelerator’ will be located in Bangalore (known also as Bengaluru) and it is scheduled to open in early 2017.

To build your authority status on LinkedIn is more challenging every day, as there is a lot of meaningful content being published.

Google is making its assistant 'conversational' in two new ways

Today, that same reticence is still obvious when you talk to Google about its assistant capabilities. "Whether we have a name or not, we think of this as Google," says Huffman. "We think of this as really a continuation of what Google has been doing for years and years." That's certainly true — and again, all indications point to Google's assistant being at least as competent as anything else that's out there — but it's doing so under the same name that sells DoubleClick ads and makes Android and productivity software. People talk about Siri and Alexa like a person in their life. Google? Not so much.

What to Expect From Google I/O 2016

Like I said, Google has so many different projects going—which the company publicly admitted could be a problem —that it’s hard to say what will get some stage time. Another fly in the ointment is that this will be the first Google I/O with Alphabet, Google’s parent company, in the mix, so we may not hear about projects at Verily, Calico, or any other Alphabet subsidiary at all! Who knows!

Everything Google announced at I/O 2016

Google today introduced the latest generation  of Android TV partnerships. The connected television platform will be integrated into Sony’s and Sharp’s next product lines, specifically the 2016 Bravia and Sharp Net Player, continuing a long relationship between the companies. In addition, Google has struck a partnership with RCA, which will produce its first Android TV, and Xiaomi, which will make its 4K set-top box.

Allo is Google's answer to Facebook Messenger

And sure enough, Allo looks a whole lot like Facebook Messenger at first blush -- or really most any messaging app you've seen before. But most messaging apps don't automatically suggest artificially intelligent answers to your friends and family's prompts. (Not even with " chatbots .")

43 Google Home: a speaker to finally take on the Amazon Echo

Instead, Google Home is going to work with a smaller set of home automation devices — Google wouldn't say which, but it will include at least some thermostats and lights. And it will be able to do all the stuff that Google's voice assistant can currently do (plus perhaps a bit more, we'll know when we get a chance to really try it). Fortunately for Google, that's quite a lot — thanks in no small part to the Knowledge Graph. It's a kind of super database that understands thousands of "entities" and their relation to one another. So if you ask for a basketball player's jersey number, Google can just give you the answer and then stand at the ready for more related questions without needing you to walk it through the current context.

Uber to test self-driving cars on Pittsburgh roads in the coming weeks

“From the first steel mills to the laboratories at Pitt and Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh has a long history of innovation,” said Mayor William Peduto. “Now we’re taking another step forward, this time as home to Uber’s Advanced Technologies Center, where some of the world’s leading innovators are helping to shape the future of transportation. We’re excited that Uber has chosen the Steel City as they explore new technologies that can improve people’s lives — through increased road safety, less congestion, and more efficient and smarter cities.”

Apple might let you unlock your Mac with an iPhone and Touch ID

The feature  sounds an awful lot like Knock , a Mac app that lets you use either your phone or Apple Watch to unlock your Mac. That software works by having you install an app on your computer, input your password there, and then gesture on either the phone or watch screen to initiate the unlock. Apple's solution may be more streamlined, alleviating the need to install an app and most likely making it an option in the settings panel of the iPhone or Apple Watch. Releasing this type of feature would also remove the need to install biometric identifiers directly within Mac computers, as Windows PC makers have done.

The FAA has been testing the FBI's drone-detection system at JFK airport

The Federal Aviation Authority is still looking for the best way to take down rogue drones. The agency may have introduced new registration rules for quadcopters (signing up  nearly 200,000 earlier this year ), but that doesn't stop someone from being an idiot  — especially near sensitive areas like airports. This week, the FAA said it had been  conducting trials of a new drone-detection system built by the FBI, testing the technology at JFK airport in New York.

Your Chromebook Will Soon Be Able to Run Android Apps

To make this work, Google engineers will build the Android N framework into Chrome OS. That ensures Android apps run quickly and easily with “no overheard and no performance penalties from emulation or virtual machines,” says product manager director Kan Liu. It also means you’ll see phone notifications on your Chromebook and share files between devices. Apps will appear on Chrome OS the same way you’d expect from a desktop app: in individual, resizable, see-a-bunch-at-once windows. (It helps that Google encourages developers to build apps for all screen sizes, so things should scale well.) You can share between apps, even between Android apps and the Chrome browser.
