Yesterday we published an article in which we talked about desperately awaiting the Google conference - see this linkIndeed, Google did not disappoint the hopes, and the conference came in a distinctive form, as if it was titled "Artificial Intelligence Solves Everything." Almost two-thirds of the duration of the conference is to showcase new features provided by artificial intelligence. As if Google says that only artificial intelligence can resolve the preference struggle between us and Apple. So what Google did with its artificial intelligence.

Is artificial intelligence resolves the conflict of advantages in favor of Google?


Natural new sounds: Google said that it used artificial intelligence to analyze human voices and develop the voices of its intelligent assistant and made it clear that the natural sound is not just a tone, but that humans interact with the sound and words, there are phrases they stop at and phrases that are pronounced louder than others are pronounced in a calm voice. There are breaks in pronunciation and so on. Google promised to provide the new votes in the coming months. By the way, there were 6 different tones of voice, one of which was by a famous singer.


Smart photo appGoogle said that it also added artificial intelligence to its application of images, so that it can understand the content of the image and tell you suggestions. For example, a picture is suggested to you to adjust the lighting and another in which there is a specific person, he suggests that you send it to him and if you take a picture of a piece of paper, he suggests that you remove the edges and adjust them as if they were taken by various scanner applications. Indeed, it came to Google that presented an example of a picture of a child, and the application suggests that the background and the surroundings of the child be made in black and white, but the child remains the same, which gives the image a wonderful professional appearance. Once again, the application is the one that analyzes the image, and it is the one that suggests modifications that it deems appropriate, and it is the one who makes these modifications if you agree.


Keep talkingA fundamental defect that I hate in the smart assistant in general, whether Siri, Google, or Alexa, is that you must before every phrase you call it, whether "Hey Siri" or "Hey Google" or "Alexa" For example, you say "Hey Siri, do I have appointments tomorrow?" Then you respond "No" and here you have to say again "Oh Siri, what is the temperature tomorrow?" And Siri responds, and then says, "Hey, Siri, record such a date." It's the same as we explained with Google and Alexa. But Google canceled this matter as you can continue talking to her directly without "Hey Google" before each phrase and also, most importantly, she remembers the context of the conversation.


More than a questionAnother feature coming: you can ask more than one question or request at the same time. For example, you say, "Are there dates tomorrow?" If there is nothing, book a movie ticket at 10 pm and tell me what the weather will be like. ” So directly 3 requests and Google will understand and respond to them.


Children pleaseA funny feature that I liked is that you can program the Google Assistant to deal with children. Here, Google’s requirement to respond to any question will be to say “Please,” or the “polite” words that suggest the request and not the matter to Google.


Other devices: Google announced cooperation with several companies to provide devices they have that work with Google Assistant, the most famous of which is the famous company JBL for headphones as well as the giant Lenovo. Imagine the devices that you can see running with Google Assistant in the future.


Inside the map: Google announced that the assistant is now in the map and understands it. Imagine that you are driving your car to go to someone, and at any time you can ask Google to inform the other party of the time remaining on your arrival, as well as play several audio clips of a suitable duration with the remaining time.


Real contacts: The previous points as well as the following are not strongly supported by this feature in my view. It is known that you can ask any smart assistant to book an appointment for you, a hotel or an Uber for example. But Google said that 60% of businesses in America do not have a smart reservation service and rely on traditional methods such as phone calling, so Google announced the feature of making phone calls. Yeah! You can ask Google to book an appointment for you in a restaurant, for example, and the Google Assistant will make a real contact with the requested party and take advantage of the first point "that his voice is normal" and the third point "understanding more than a question" to be able to make a call as if a real person was the one who made it with the restaurant and not an assistant Clever.


Organize your usage: A feature that depends on artificial intelligence and will come in Android P, where it shows you a list of your phone uses, whether apps and notifications, and you can ask Google to help you reduce the time you waste on your device and thus Google begins analyzing notifications and applications and alerting you after certain periods of "you are the one you choose" that You have to stop. This analysis helps Google on the next point as well.


Less battery consumption: And because Google knows now by analyzing your usage what matters are important to you, what notifications you interact with, and which ones you ignore, do you prefer a certain light intensity and when you want to sleep, "you are the one who chooses the return" and details also help Google to reduce other things that consume the battery unnecessarily. Imagine that there is an application that sends dozens of notifications and works a lot in the background, for example, and at the same time that you rarely use it. Here, Google resizes this application and provides an option in which notifications for this application can be collected together, for example, once a day.


Smart suggestionsA little like feature that Apple introduced in iOS years ago that if you swipe to search, it shows you suggestions for apps; Google will offer you this as well, but it will add things that depend on artificial intelligence, machine learning, AI and ML, and it suggests certain functions. For example, if you call every day at 10 am to a specific person, then if you go around this time around this time to go to search, you will see the option to contact this person. If you have an appointment, for example, an option appears for you to open the application and find out details about it, and if you connect the headset, you will guess that you want to listen to audio clips and suggest that you open the list of audios that you heard the last time.


Google lens: An old feature of Pixel phones, but Google decided to develop it and make it available to everyone. Google lens or Google Lens is, in short, the traditional photography application, but with special advantages, which is that the camera will analyze for you what is in front of it, for example, it tells you that this is such a restaurant and this book has its price as such and the reviews on it are such. Google decided to add some new features, such as if you correct texts such as banners or papers, for example, then analyze the image, and in seconds you can choose any word and search for it on Wikipedia, for example, or copy it. And if you shoot for a specific outfit, he can know your style as well as his model and search for what it looks like on the Internet as well as the prices of these other styles in stores. And other advantages that can be done with the application.

This is not all however

The aforementioned is not everything and it is not all that Google has provided. There are advantages of recognizing the voices of broadcasters, for example, separating their voices, and there is a feature of automatic recognition of Gmail conversations and suggesting responses and the keyboard supports Morris code and many other advantages. But does this settle the conflict?

The answer to the question is very difficult because Apple's strengths are not in artificial intelligence, but in hardware compatibility with applications, privacy and security, which are almost not mentioned by Google or focused on. And also a company that possesses financial liquidity of more than a quarter of a trillion dollars, it is illogical to receive easily; But if you do not move quickly, things may become more difficult, especially since Google has focused on direct user benefits that will appear within months.

What do you think about what Google revealed? Do you expect the search giant's focus on artificial intelligence to resolve the conflict, or does Apple have other strengths?
