Google announces Android 12 and more artificial intelligence at I / O 2021

Google dares something. Many companies are currently preparing their virtual events in advance and playing them online at a specific time, while Google broadcasts the kick-off event of the Google I / O Developer Conference live, including tongue slips and long breaks. For about two hours, the managers of the internet company, above all CEO Sundar Pichai, took turns making innovations and research projects.

The first appearance of the Android 12 smartphone operating system may be the news that will have the biggest impact. After all, according to the company, the software is now actively used on three billion devices.

The biggest innovation of the announcement for the fall is the design known as Google’s “Material U”, which has been updated based on the visual appearance and some functionality of the user interface. It starts with the fact that you can define yourself as a user of certain parts of the design. For example, what colors and widgets should the computer use. Software, for example, can identify dominant colors from its own photograph and define them as computer colors. The customized design is linked to a Google Account and should be automatically transferred to the user’s other devices. Windows 10 has a similar function.

New animations should make the system feel more organic. And by accommodating others who have been removed. Google cites an example: If you read all the notifications on the lock screen, the time will be magnified. Innovations include a redesigned quick access menu that can be swiped from the top of the screen, and now includes fields for Smart Home Control and Google Pay.

Functionally, the new Privacy Dashboard is remarkable in that you can see which apps used which data and when. If you notice inconsistencies, for example, an application will access the camera, but since photos are not part of its functionality, it can immediately disable access to the corresponding data source. A feature known from iPhones and iPods: When an application approaches a camera or microphone, it does not matter why, it is indicated by a green light dot at the top right of the screen.

Another option inspired by iOS 14 as a Google option, the ability to allow approximate access to applications that use location data, is not the right place.

A Android 12 Beta Now available for devices Google, OnePlus, Xiaomi and other companies Available. However, before you install it, you should back up all personal data, and be aware that there may always be bugs and data loss bugs in such pre-software.

Who is Android?

The smartwatch operating system has been silent for a long time about Google root. Now the team is trying to breathe new life into the software with the help of Samsung. For this purpose, the root is to be integrated with the Tyson operating system that Samsung has developed for its own smartwatches. Companies expect applications, higher battery life and faster application launches. In addition, some functionality of fitness equipment from Fitbit – the company was recently acquired by Google – is set to be incorporated into the future system.

Chatting with a paper airplane

To prove how far Google has come in directing artificial-looking conversations with artificial intelligence, Sundar PichaiLanguage model for conversational applications«, Abbreviated lambda. These examples were intended to provide an overview of how prosthetic assistants might interact with people in the future, even when it comes to non-professional topics.

So Pichai showed a conversation in which Lamda referred to the planet Pluto as a person. In the second conversation, the computer saw itself as a paper airplane that willingly provided information about its view of the world.

However, Google lost the courage to do a live show here, and the conversations were re-enacted as recordings. Google boss Pichai later admitted that Lambda is not finished yet, errors still occur, and that the software sometimes simply does not respond. This is the case with beta versions.
