Google Pixels will get transcription support for call screenings before the end of the year Users will be able to save transcriptions of phone calls later this year. Currently, when Google Assistant picks up a spam call, users can only watch transcriptions in real time as the conversation is happening. Once the call is over, there’s no way for a user to revisit the conversation. A Call Screen product manager on Google’s support forums confirmed last week that the feature will be launching later this year, and transcripts will be automatically saved in the Call Log once the call has ended, in the Call Details section.

Today, PepsiCo announced that it will be rolling out a fleet of snack-carrying robots on the University of the Pacific’s campus in California.

The robots — or “snackbots” — carry snacks and beverages from the company’s Hello Goodness portfolio, which includes choices like Smartfood Delight popcorn, Baked Lays, Pure Leaf Tea, and Starbucks Cold Brew drinks. Students can place their orders on the iOS app and have them delivered to select locations around the 175-acre campus between 9AM and 5PM.

The snackbots are nearly identical to the other delivery machines we’ve seen before. They can travel 20 miles on a single charge, and they have headlights and a camera. Once the students meet the robot, they open its green lid and grab their order.

The robot is very smart, and as it glides along, we target where the larvae need to be distributed so new colonies can form and new coral communities can develop.” The robot has an onboard vision system that allows it to “see” its way through reef environments, he explained.

This week, PepsiCo unleashed a fleet of snack -wielding, self-driving robots across the University of the Pacific's Stockton, California campus. So how do you summon one of these high-tech small pets, exactly? Students must download a special ordering app that 's only available to those with a

PepsiCo said it was the largest food and beverage company on the market that has begun to deliver snacks and drinks by way of robot. Last year, Kiwi spearheaded a similar service at UC Berkeley, and students at the university adored the robo-couriers so much that when one caught on fire due to a battery malfunction, they held a candlelight vigil for the device.

According to The Daily Californian, students on Facebook called the robot a “hero” and a “legend.”

The ordering app is available on iOS with a valid University of the Pacific email address.

Five arrests after knife-wielding gang targets college.
Five people have been arrested after a knife-wielding group of males started threatening students at a college in Lancashire. Police said the "targeted" attack at Runshaw College in Leyland resulted in a 17-year-old boy being nicked on the arm. He was taken to hospital but his injury was not thought to be life-threatening. A member of staff at the school had received an anonymous report at 10.40am on Monday saying that a group of people with weapons were going to travel from Manchester to the college.
