Yesterday, Google hosted a live video presentation for their biggest and best product launch ever. A lot of information was leaked to the press prior to the event detailing what’s to come from the new Pixel phone. This product truly looks  awesome and rumour has it; this dream mobile with VR-headset and wifi router will take the market by storm. All in all, google products will change the way we interact with people and our devices. The greatest wow factor goes to Google Home and Google Assistant.

Google CEO, Sundar Pichai was the first to introduce the product line in the Google press conference (live stream) by discussing the big investments and focus that went into perfecting their  Artificial Intelligence. “We are moving or evolving from a  mobile first to an AI first world,” he said. He also explained how Google’s vision of the next paradigm of computing has evolved into building the new Google Assistant.

Google Assistant will be a part of new hardware products. Google’s Personal Assistant can help you organise your day and answer any question, which will be supported by a huge number of external services. The Google Assistant is there to help its users with intelligent answers on natural language conversational questions.

Sundar said that; Google built a search engine for everyone, their goal with the Assistant is to build an individual Google for each and every user and it will only get better the more you use it. You AI will learn with you, and adapt to your personal needs.

Each of the building blocks that makes Google Assistant work have been massively improved with machine learning and AI technology:

-Google’s Knowledge Graph has more than 70 billion facts
-Natural language processing make it possible to hold a conversation
-Machine translation
-Voice recognition
-Image recognition

Even though the press conference was relating to things “Made by Google”, but it also hinted developments made to the hardware, the big hero of the show was obviously the Google Assistant, and how it was integrated in the new hardware products.

Google’s new smartphone is Pixel, and it looks just like an iPhone 6, without the camera bump, but with the antenna lines and large bezel. This is the first phone Google has designed and built from bottom up, unlike the former Google Nexus phones that was built by OEM partners.

It comes in two versions, 5” and 5,5” screen, with three color options: Quite Black, Really Blue and Very Silver and 32 or 128 GB memory. It boosts the new Snapdragon 821 Quad core processor and AMOLED screen. One thing that was not mentioned in the presentation was water proofing.
