Artificial Intelligence the headline act at Google I/O 2018 – Digital Minute 15/05/18


Hi! I’m Sophie, and on this edition of Digital Minute, we’ll be looking at the big talking points from Google I/O. The multinational tech company held its annual global developers’ conference only last week, revealing some of the new features it’s introducing to its mobile, search voice products – artificial intelligence being a major theme. The headline feature was Google Duplex, demonstrated by Google’s AI assistant, which was able to call a hair salon and book an appointment, much to the amazement of the audience. But there were a number of other big announcements. The next generation Android will introduce a host of new features, including the option to set ‘time limits’ on how often you use your phone. Interesting updates to Google Maps, Lens and News could all be considerations for the world of SEO. So, it’s clear, Google’s betting big on voice and AI over the coming years, and we’ve summarised some of the key lessons from I/O, linking to some other useful guides, over on our blog. Thanks for watching, I’m Sophie Hazan, and that was your Digital Minute.
