Not impressed by the advances in information technology this past year? Watch (or listen in the car :-) to the recent keynote speach at Google I/O.
Early on there is an account of just how much Google surrounds us now:
- Over 2 Billion Android devices
- Over 1 Billion regular users of Google Search, Chrome browser, Maps, Gmail, Youtube and more.
Google have become so involved in our lives you may be ignorant of just how much they support your day to day.
With the tech race advancing at pace, Google and a couple others remain at the forefront.
Key to their success is massive processing power distributed in data centres around the world. Such innovations means that they have their own computer server processes that have given rise to the most accurate speech to text recognition. On Android you are more likely to get more accurate text from speaking to your phone then typing on the small on-screen keyboard.
How many of the Google products do you use?
