Google Play Music is getting a much-needed overhaul starting this week, both inside and out. Google is revamping its Play Music streaming app for Android, iOS and Web to focus heavily on context and personalization. Using machine learning to figure out what music you want to listen to, the app will suggest songs and playlists depending on what time and day it is, where you are, what the local weather is, and other factors that could possibly affect your mood and musical preferences. The update will see a gradual global roll-out, starting this week on Android, iOS and the web version of Google Play Music.

When Samsung acquired a startup called Viv Labs, founded by the creators of Siri, rumours started floating around that the company will use Viv Labs’ technology to build an artificial intelligence digital assistant for the Galaxy S8. Later, some rumours surfaced claiming the name of this AI assistant will be Bixby.
Now, without going into the specifics, Samsung has confirmed that it’s next flagship smartphone is going to feature a digital assistant. Before this official confirmation, Samsung sent out a tweet confirming it as well. Continue reading “Samsung’s AI will be open to developers, debut with the Galaxy S8 confirmed”
Samsung has undoubtedly suffered a huge setback due to the worldwide mishap triggered by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Not only did the South Korean smartphone giant lose out on the considerable amount of business that their newest flagship could have potentially brought them, the goodwill that was built upon years of hard work was also subjected to annihilation. But Samsung is not about to give up despite the billions of dollars it has lost.
Not to be outdone by its rivals that are betting big on artificial intelligence (AI), Samsung has been rumoured to be working on it’s own AI assistant and now has filed a trademark for a voice-controlled digital assistant called… Bixby.

AI has been slowly developing over the years, with Google researchers having come up with artificial intelligence that can create trippy art. But, trippy art seems to have grown too old for them, and so they have done something potentially alarming. They have created AI that is able to make encrypted messages without the aid or knowledge of humans.
A research paper says Google employees Martin Abadi and David G. Anderson carried out an experiment in which they tried to make three artificial neural network named Eve, Bob, and Alice, send messages to each other that could only be understood by them, using an encryption method that they made.

Samsung should have a lot of faith riding on its upcoming Galaxy S8, and according to Chinese sources close to the matter, it’s heavily rumored that the upcoming flagship is going to be arriving in two models with varied hardware details.

In a bid to break the market, they are also bringing their own version of Siri – a digital online assistant. While the name isn’t as fancy as Siri (It’s called Google Assistant), it promises to have something that Siri might not have! A sense of humour. Not to say Siri isn’t funny at all. She definitely has her moments. But personally, I would call her the Queen of Sass.
In general, Artificial intelligence, in practice, isn’t very funny. Ask Siri or Amazon Alexa to tell you a joke, and you’ll probably get something a 10-year-old would scrunch her nose at. Continue reading “Google is hiring comedians to add a sense of humour to Google Assistant”
Much like goods and coins before it, data is becoming an important currency for the modern world. The data’s value is rooted in its applications to artificial intelligence. Whichever company owns the data, effectively owns AI. Right now that means companies like Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet, IBM and Microsoft have a ton of power.
The world’s largest technology companies hold the keys to some of the largest databases on our planet, and are now joining hands together to form an effective alliance, however, two big Silicon Valley names are missing from the team up, which aims to set societal and ethical best practice for artificial intelligence research.
It’s no secret that Microsoft is betting big on speech recognition. You only have to look at Cortana to see how the company has pushed both its own boundaries and the industry as a whole.
Microsoft say they are working on a major breakthrough to bring proper computer speech recognition to the masses. A new ‘conversational speech recognition system’ could be closer than ever and will help computers to understand the melting pot that is human language.
