Google i/o 2017
Summary: From May 17th to 19th, Google i/o 2017 was hold at California. First of all, what is Google i/o? I/O in the terms of science science means input and output, and this is also Google’s slogan, Innovation in Open. Google i/o is an annual conference for developers all around the world. But, why this year’s Google i/o became to spotlight? The term “Artificial Intelligence” has already became to the most popular topic in the field of computer science. So, in i/o 2017, Google presented a keynote for explaining what they have done in the field of Artificial Intelligence over the past years. For instance, Google developed a smart Application called Google Lens. This application allowing smartphones can be able to recognize and understand the pictures which are provided by users. During the conference, Google also announced their second generation of TPU as known as Cloud TPU. TPU is a processor which is faster than the normal CPU, and its vast majority is to effectively process the algorithm of Artificial Intelligence. Compared with its first generation, it is not only can be use to inference the data, but also has ability to train the digital neutral networks.
Personal thoughts: Nowadays, with the development of technology, we are not only able to understand the principle of human body system, but also are able to mimic the system of neural network in our brain by using tons of calculations and Algorithms processing in a single chip. AI is not just about recognizing photos. I have a high exception on Google. Time is going to prove my statement, because it usually takes decade for changing a single academic theory to a real useful product. In this generation, since the first iPhone came out, we have been waiting too long for the next revolution. Personally, the meaning or the importance of i/o 2017 is that Google literally shows its determination of dedicating in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Hence, in the near future, there is going to have a phenomenal revolution.
