Google I/O 2017: Google Announces Android Go, Lightweight OS For Cheap Devices

20 May 2017, 04:08 | Jodi Jackson

On the first day of its annual I/O conference at its Mountain View headquarters in San Francisco late on Wendesday, Google said "Android O" - that will be released later this year - would bring more fluid experiences to the devices as well as improvements to areas of the phone called "vitals" like battery life and security.

This has already produced a related initiative called Google for Jobs, which will use AI to help connect job seekers with employers more efficiently; and a related program that will enable neural networks to create other neural networks, called AutoML, could in a few years allow developers to create machine learning systems without the high level of expertise that's now needed for such efforts. This while people using its dominant internet search engine and leading email service have been feeding the machines valuable pieces of personal information for almost 20 years.

Affirming its dominance in the tech world with announcing beta version of "Android O" operating system, Google is celebrating the milestone of reaching two billion monthly active Android devices globally. They must work on to improve their apps especially now that Google Assistant and Google Home are quickly advancing.

Google is also planning to bring Assistant to more devices, including TVs, wearables, and cars - as well as third-party devices, including iPhone. For example, you can point a smartphone at a flower and be told exactly what it is.

Google CEO Pichai also added that his company is also teaming up with several job-hunting platforms, which includes LinkedIn, CareerBuilder, Monster, Facebook, Glassdoor and more.


Among the other new features introduced at the long-awaited Google I/O conference was the Google Lens initiative.

The app uses image recognition to identify objects appearing in your camera lens in real-time. Also called Lens, it lets people point their cameras at real-world items and find out where to buy them, or find similar things online.

It is now incorporated in Google Photos and Google Assistant applications and will be compatible with any device running Android Marshmallow or later versions.

Looking for jobs? Well, Google has some big news for millions of job seekers, and it's pretty awesome. The company is also making sure that its own apps, like Chrome and Gboard, will do the same. Google maintains the feature will be smart enough so that you would auto-share only specific photos - say, of your kids - to your partner or a friend. The app will draw upon its AI powers to automatically pick out the best pictures to put in the album.
