Google's Pixel 4 event takes place October 15th
After a cornucopia of leaks, Google is finally ready to show what the Pixel 4 is all about. The internet giant has sent out invitations to see "a few new things Made by Google" at an October 15th event in New York City. It's not offering many clues about what to expect, but c'mon -- you can safely assume the Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be the centerpieces of the event with their touch-free gestures and 90Hz displays. It's everything else that's less certain. One possibility is a Nest Mini smart speaker that would replace the Home Mini. It's believed to be visually similar to the outgoing model, but would pack requested features like an audio output jack and a wall mount.
Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 4 at a media event in New York City on Tuesday, October 15. The show kicks off at 10 am Eastern, which is an early 7 am on You can watch a livestream of the event right here on this page. Tune in a little early, since Google often provides some pregame color.

Google isn't known for keeping a tight lid on its hardware secrets, and this year is no different—we already have a good idea what will becoming to Google's Pixel event today, set to start at 10 a.m. ET.
As its name would suggest, Google's new phones—the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL—will be headliner. While for the most part these new Pixels will be just your typical smartphone update with better processors, cameras, etc. The Pixel 4 will pack in one interesting feature with radar sensor navigation, dubbed Project Soli. How are we so sure this tech will be included? Google already told us:

It's tech that Google's been working on for years, so it's exciting to see it finally baked into a mainstream smartphone. The idea is that radar sensors pick up your motions so that you can perform basic navigation on your phone.
The Pixel 4 will also have face scanning for unlocking your smartphone, much like the Apple introduced with the iPhone X (and every subsequent iPhone thereafter). So with the combination of Project Soli along with the Pixel 4's face scanning technology, you might never tough your phone again.
Other than that, Google blogs anticipate a Nest Mini smart speaker, which basically looks like a Google Home Mini, new Pixelbuds, and a new Chromebook called the Pixelbook Go, which looks like an attempt to make a really, really good mid-range Chromebook. We're into all of it.
Facebook: Chatbots learned to lie
Chatbots have been thought of as voice assistants in the service of humans. But what happens when they start a conversation between them? The answer is pretty amazing.
In recent years, artificial intelligence is no longer a matter of scientists in white coats. Google Home, Amazon Echo, but also chatbots in Messenger, the instant messaging application of Facebook, are all examples of their accessibility to the general public. The purpose of these assistants is to simplify your life by imitating aspects of human conversation to the fullest. When you start a conversation with a chatbot, it can be more or less good: some people understand a wide range of questions and ways to ask them, others are left behind. But what happens when they start talking to each other? Facebook engineers and researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have experienced this: their results are surprising to say the least.
AIs Chatbots are excellent negotiators when talking to each other. Researchers found that, through the questions they asked themselves, they were able to deduce what was important to the other person and to use this information later to increase the value of their proposal in their eyes. interlocutor ... exactly as people in the sales profession do!When chatting, chatbots show
strategy But what has even more surprised researchers is the ability of AI to understand the strategies used by their interlocutor and adapt accordingly. For example, the "customer" chatbot stated that this or that aspect of the product was important to him, when in fact he was not. All to make the "seller" believe that he was in a strong position in the negotiation. The sculpin "seller" did not hesitate to show the value of his product and justify its high price. A minute later, the "customer" announced that this aspect of the product was not important to him and demanded a discount.
The rest? In many cases, the "client" AI actually managed to get a discount. But sometimes, his negotiating skills were such that the price of the product fell to zero. As part of their experience, researchers have programmed chatbots to cancel their market if this situation arose. As a result, the chatbots noticed that being stubborn was not in their interest and learned to avoid these situations.
