Here’s this week’s newsletter:
“An important shift from a mobile first world to an AI first world,” declared Google CEO Sundar Pichai, summarizing the Google I/O 2017 keynote yesterday. His description of the changes underway at his company apply to nearly every business today.
Almost all of Google’s announcements touched on AI in one way or another. From introducing a second generation of TPU chips to accelerate deep learning for such applications as cancer research and DNA sequencing, to a broad effort to get Google Home on as many screens and devices as possible. (As I wrote last week, your living room is the next battle ground for intelligent assistants.) The company also shared that it’s speech recognition technology was now better than 95 percent accurate.
It’s all about a transition from “searching and organizing the world’s information to AI and machine learning,” Pichai said.
Is such a change underway at your company, too? If so, drop me a line and tell me what’s afoot.
