Here's what we've learned from Google I/O 2018 so far

Google has an ecosystem of products, including the Android operating system.

It will tailor the news that people see to their preferences, despite fears of such technologies creating a "filter bubble" where users only see stories that conform to their views. Also, Duplex won't place a traditional call to the business as it will use a different number for this, instead of using your phone number.

The first day of annual Google I/O developers conference wrapped up promising some groundbreaking developments.

Google will conduct early testing of Duplex-the AI engine inside Assistant-this summer specifically to help users make the type of hair and restaurant reservations noted above.

But the feature that stole the show has got to be that demo powered by Google Duplex, the company's new experimental technology which lets an AI-powered bot make phone calls on your behalf. Pichai said during keynote, "We know the path ahead needs to be navigated carefully and deliberately". The app is even getting smarter, with new options to convert images directly to PDF, machine learning based retouch options and suggested tagging and sharing options.

The Google Assistant will soon speak to humans, like humans.

The Google Photos will be revamped to introduce features like black & white photo colourization, and ability to separate subjects from the background in pictures.

Area high schools recognized in US News and World Report rankings
Barstow High School and Academy of Careers and Exploration in Helendale each earned a bronze level, despite not being ranked. News and World Report ranked Florida as the fourth best state for high schools.

Kenyan dam bursts after weeks of rain, killing at least 32
He added: " It is a disaster because most people were asleep when the tragedy occurred and their houses were swept away ". Even before the dam-burst, rains had killed 132 people and displaced 222,000 in Kenya alone, according to the government.

Manchester City earn record-breaking farewell for Yaya Toure
That is held by Manchester United who won the league in 1999/2000 by 18 points, and are now 20 behind City. City can become Centurions with a win over Southampton at the weekend by hitting 100 points.

For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well".

Google photos cannot just restore our old black and white photos, but also convert them to colour images.

Android P is expected to arrive later this summer, but a public beta has been launched yesterday and will be available to a few devices from Google, Essential, OnePlus, Sony, Nokia and more. "We'll be experimenting with the right approach over the coming months". This enables 2018 LG TVs to deliver an intuitive AI experience that uses natural language commands to control TV functions, seamlessly discover and play content, and control TV settings.

The conference opened with Silicon Valley facing a wave of criticism over issues such as private data protection, the spread of misinformation and the use of tech platforms for hate speech and violence, and with intense scrutiny of Facebook over the hijacking of data on millions of its users.

Other than starting a wave, the attendees at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, don't seem that into it.

Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, has announced that the company is relaunching its news service facilitating the search of information from credible sources for its users as part of fight against fake news distribution, local media reported on Wednesday. Google also planned to add a "shush" mode to its Android mobile software, switching smartphones to a do-not-disturb mode when they are placed face down on a table.

On Tuesday, Google showed off a computer assistant that makes convincingly human-sounding phone calls, at least in its prerecorded demonstration.
