The Amazing Things Google Is Doing With AI
HWM Malaysia|January 2018

Google is one, if not the biggest, contributor to AI development today, and you can find AI in almost every Google product, from the Smart Reply feature in Gmail, to auto complete in Google Search, to the next suggested video in YouTube, to the Portrait mode feature on the Pixel 2 XL smartphone, to Google Assistant in your Google Home.

In fact, AI is now the key focus for the company, with CEO Sundar Pichai stating at Google I/O earlier this year his belief that we are “shifting from a mobile-first world to an AI-first world.”

But what else has Google been using AI for?

More accurate translations

You may not know this, but in November 2016, Google Translate switched from its old sentence-based translation system to a new one based on neural networks.

Google’s Neural Machine Translation system translates whole sentences at a time, rather than just piece by piece. It uses this broader context to help it figure out the most relevant translation, which it then rearranges and adjusts to be more like a human speaking with proper grammar. Since it’s easier to understand each sentence, translated paragraphs and articles are a lot smoother and easier to read. Additionally, the network learns over time, meaning that every time it translates something, it gets better and better.

LOOKING BACK…

It was a season to remember. It was a season to forget. Either way, you look at it, it was the strangest of seasons for San Francisco that you will ever see. Looking back at the year that was to illustrate that point, The Niner Report has assembled the best, worst and most unconventional of the 49ers’ 2020 season.

ROOKIE REVIEW

After building the 49ers into NFC champions with young talent during their first three years together — when San Francisco had a total of 40 rookies see action from 2017-2019 — the team’s leadership tandem of general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan found themselves with considerably less draft capital at their disposal in the fourth year of their partnership.
