It's been reported that more than two-thirds of adults in the United States get their news from Facebook, and many don't...

Google Translate offline translations are about to get way better with machine learning

Google began their foray into the AI and machine intelligence sectors thanks to the computing power they're able to leverage in the company's data centers. This worked out great as it allowed people all around the world to see how beneficial it was without needing to invest in new hardware. This was when they started...

On-device machine learning coming to Chrome OS

Machine Learning is one of those hotwords that keeps gaining traction inside Google. It has seeped into every branch of its business from the Google Assistant to Gmail. New code indicates that Google is now working to support machine learning on Chrome OS. The implementation looks similar in concept to TensorFlow Lite for Android, where clients...

Google’s ML Kit is a new Firebase SDK that takes the headache out of machine learning

Machine learning and artificial intelligence have quickly entered our lexicon in recent years, but few truly understand how the technology works, or what they're capable of. Even Google's own AI researchers joke that machine learning is akin to alchemy. As a busy developer, you may not have the time to learn about machine learning (ML),...

Google wants your help training their image recognition algorithms

Google is all about algorithms and machine learning these days. Android users see this technology first-hand with features like Google Assistant and smart replies. They are constantly working to improve the image recognition algorithms. One shortcoming of the company's AI systems is the lack of data for emerging markets like India. Google is hoping they...

What do developers think of open source, AI, machine learning, and net neutrality?

A few of the big trends in technology these last few years have been AI and machine learning. The software is getting smarter and developers have access to some awesome tools.

But we're hoping that one -- an artificially intelligent (AI) camera app that recognizes when more than one person is looking at a phone's screen -- is in the former...

Try Out On-Device Conversational Modeling with Google’s TensorFlow Lite

Google has been stepping into the machine learning game more and more, especially when it comes to messaging. Earlier this year, Google launched a machine learning algorithm for smart messaging on Android Wear 2.0, allowing for the use of previously cloud-based machine learning technologies to be used entirely offline in applications such as Gmail, Inbox...

Google Launches Firebase Predictions for User Segmentation Using Machine Learning

Today in Amsterdam at the 2017 Firebase Dev Summit, Google launched Firebase Predictions, their attempt at helping you predict what your users are going to do, before your users actually do it. Trying to figure out how to target promotions within your app has historically been an absolute pain, up until now requiring manual segmentation of...
