Google is revealing ‘the new Google Earth’ next week

  Google is revealing ‘the new Google Earth’ next week Remember Google Earth? Once the coolest and most convenient way to explore the planet on a computer, the app has been largely cannibalized as Maps became ever more powerful. But Google hasn’t forgotten about it, and just sent out invites to the press for an event where it will unveil “the new Google Earth”.

Google has said making software open source allows outsiders to improve the company’ s technology. Google publishes A . I . Experiments to show in simple ways the different things Google ’ s AI software can do .

The AI gamer does not go through the game manual but instead watches humans play the game and learn from them. Google has not revealed the purpose of developing the AI gamer. However, market observers suggest that the software can help the company improve upon its ads service.

The future of Google lies in its artificial intelligence technologies, CEO Sundar Pichai has said multiple times.

That means Google’s products increasingly rely on machine learning — programming that allows computers to “learn” on their own.

You’ll notice AI at work in Google Assistant to understand questions you ask, as well as in Google Photos, which uses AI to identify things like objects, animals and people.

But Google also wants developers to use its open source AI software including translation and visual recognition, to build new tools. Google has said making software open source allows outsiders to improve the company’s technology.

Google adds fact-check findings to search and news results

  Google adds fact-check findings to search and news results Following Facebook’s lead, Google is calling on fact-checking organizations to help it bust fake news. But it’s starting in a pretty small way. BeginningBeginning today, Google will present richer information from fact-checking sites like PolitiFact and Snopes when they show up in search and news results. Those sites will be able to display richer information on Google, including directly noting whether they’ve judged a claim to be true, false, or somewhere in between.

Here ' s how to fix it .

Google publishes A.I. Experiments to show in simple ways the different things Google’s AI software can do. It offers interactive demonstrations of Google’s open-source technology. The site is aimed at promoting the software and encouraging developers to use it, with some of the code for the experiments available on the site.

The tools are easy to play with if you’re not a programmer and can offer a window into what Google is teaching computers to do. Sometimes users’ interactions with the tools support experiments and development by Google into the future.

At least one of the 10 experiments posted on the site, Quick, Draw!, has played a role in Google’s AI research. The widget prompts users to draw a specific thing, like a see-saw, in under 20 seconds. While the user draws, the program tries to guess what the user is drawing.

Google wants better international rules for data requests

  Google wants better international rules for data requests <p>We know governments send requests to Google for our data. We know they sometimes get a court order, and they've even done so secretly.</p>And though Google puts out a semiannual transparency report giving us a broad sense of how often governments are asking to access private data of its users, Google says a new problem has cropped up: The number of requests from governments outside the US is growing.

Google used doodles from Quick, Draw! to teach artificial intelligence software how to draw on its own.

Last week, Google added another drawing tool, this one called AutoDraw, which turns doodles into clip art by comparing them against a database of professional drawings.

Other experiments include:

  • A demonstration in which the AI tries to imitate your handwriting strokes.
  • An app that identifies what’s in a photo, in English an an alternate language.
  • An experiment that visualizes how machine learning organizes sounds by how similar they are.

Google Maps can remember where you parked on Android and iOS .
Google Maps already lets you know when parking at your destination might be difficult, but the app's latest navigation feature aims to make things even easier after you've arrived.&nbsp;On Android, users simply need to tap the blue dot once they've parked and then hit "Save your parking" to drop a pin handily labeled "You parked here." Tapping the pin label brings up another card where you can set a reminder to pay the parking meter, snap a picture of your parking space, share your car's location or just jot down some parking notes.
