This morning I took some time to find out about the announcements made by Google at their keynote conference yesterday in Mountain View, California. Working in a technological environment means that there is always an excitement when new things are being introduced. Having seen some of the new offerings by Google it’s safe to say that the advancements being made are, in some ways, going to be life-changing for many people.
Each year Google holds the conference for developers and reveals the plans they have for the upcoming year or so. This year’s biggest topic was…drum roll, please…Artificial Intelligence!! Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, talked about major changes being made, these generally seemed to be focused on AI. What I loved most was that there seemed to be a clear focus on the user experience, enhancing this by making changes.
Well for anyone who loves technology it’s exciting to see what is in store for the future and for Android devices in particular. The user interface and design changes stood out and are fierce competition for Apple. It means better and more tailored experiences as well as convenience and instantly accessible information. In a way, it’s streamlining usability and providing a simple platform to do so.
