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.

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.

Test-driving Android Wear 2.0 for your wrist

  Test-driving Android Wear 2.0 for your wrist Is Google's wrist-wear ready for prime time?With sales still firmly in the less-than-spectacular bracket though, is a fancy new OS update going to be enough to convince users to pay for an Android Wear device? We took the Huawei Watch 2 out for some testing to see what Android Wear 2.0 has to offer.

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’s new app turns your ugly doodles into art

  Google’s new app turns your ugly doodles into art Most of us aren’t talented artists, so if I ever need a graphic for some project I’ll usually resort to finding clipart on the web. It’s incredibly simple to use, and a whole lot of fun. Start drawing, and Google starts guessing what you’re trying to draw with a banner running atop the page. Basically, imagine a robot trying to play pictionary.

Change your edition back to menu. IMAGINATIVE AI . There are rules—and there are already technologies that can help writers follow those rules. The Hemingway App, which we reviewed here , is an example of a system that does this well.

Here ’ s what Google ’ s AI software can do , and how you can help improve it . How far is the singularity? We are in interesting times and AI advancement will create new opportunities.

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. 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.
