Google is primed to go big at CES again

Google is primed to go big at CES again Last year was the search giant's first official appearance in years at the massive tech show. With round two, Google looks to make an even bigger splash.

Presenting the Best of CES 2019 winners! Congratulations to all! Intel at CES 2019 : Hybrid chips, AI and Project Athena. The company's general manager of innovation segments joined us at CES to break down its news.

The biggest highlight of Google ’s CES 2019 demo has been real-time translation. Officially dubbed Interpreter Mode, we tested out its ability to translate Google Assistant is just getting smartphone on phones. The AI behind the assistant is constantly being improved to better understand what it’s

Google made a huge splash at CES 2018, taking over the parking lot with a giant interactive booth. This year, the company was back, and everything was bigger. I mean, the entire second floor of the booth was a Google Assistant Ride, basically the company's version of Disney's iconic "It's a Small World" ride. But, you know, as a marketing stunt rather than inspirational experience.

The literally massive Google Playground dovetailed nicely with Google's news here at CES 2019. The company will hit 1 billion active Assistant devices by the end of the month, up from 400 million the year before. There's no doubt Google has incredible momentum behind it, but as for this year's news? Well, it was a little more modest. Google rolled out a nice new Interpreter tool, added the Assistant into Google Maps navigation, revealed a slew of new hardware partners, and showed off some clever new third-party Assistanthardware.

CES 2019 was a fantastic show if you're looking for new hardware to upgrade your PC with, with the big CES 2019 's 'Ninja hangout' is a place where smaller companies can show off their innovative new Semiconductor company AMD has already said that it intends to show - off its 3rd-gen Ryzen

Google erected an enormous outdoor booth to show off the multitude of devices that now work with Assistant , including smart watches, speakers and displays. He said just about everything announced at CES required an internet connection, so that ’s the last thing that people would cut off .

But what's perhaps most important is that even without a huge new feature or hardware device to show off, Google is broadcasting to everyone that it'll be at CES for years to come, getting the Assistant on as many devices as possible and slugging it out with Amazon for voice-activated dominance.

Google Translate will help Wikipedia fill its non-English websites.
Google is helping the Wikimedia Foundation achieve its goal of making Wikipedia articles available in a lot more languages. The Foundation has added Google Translate to its content translation tool, which human editors can use to add content to non-English Wikipedia websites. Those editors can take advantage of the new option -- "one of the most advanced machine translation systems available today," the foundation called it -- to generate an initial translation that they can then review and edit for readability in their language.
