Google develops AI to improve accessibility.

Pichai showed off several ways the company is using AI to make it easier to communicate.

Live Caption will add text captions to video, using automated speech recognition, on the fly. While the emphasis on the demo was web video, Pichai noted the company is exploring it on video chats.

Live Relay is a way for people to make audio phone calls without having to speak or hear. According to Google, Live Relay uses speech recognition and text-to-speech functions, as well as predictive writing suggestions, so people can carry on a live call, allowing their phone speak for them. All of that happens on the device itself.

Project Euphonia is meant to assist people with speech impairments be understood by machines. Google trained its AI on English speakers whose speech has been impaired by ALS. It is also training personalized AI algorithms to detect sounds and gestures, which it can translate into actions, such as triggering Google Home commands or sending text messages, according to Google.

Google is making its Assistant up to 10 times faster by moving its computing onto the phone devices and letting you control it without saying “Hey, Google” every time you want it to do something. Onstage, the company showed how this new, faster assistant can help you navigate between apps like text messaging and photos in one interaction.

For example, you could, in a single conversation with the assistant, tell it to show you photos with animals from a recent trip and then have it send the photos to a friend. Neat!

The Assistant is also becoming more personalized with a new feature called “personalized preferences” that will recognize contacts in your phone. You’ll be able to say something like “What’s the weather at Mom’s house this weekend?” and it will tell you based on its understanding of who your mother is. Huh.

Duplex on the web can reserve a rental car for you online.

It’s an evolution of that creepy- and scary-good voice bot, Duplex, from last year, that sounds like a real human and can reserve a table at a restaurant or book an appointment at a salon.

Duplex on the web isn’t a voice bot, but rather artificial intelligence, right on the phone, that can fill out forms for you. In a demo, CEO Sundar Pichai showed how Duplex can fill out a car rental reservation form online, using your personal information, and submit the request on your behalf.

More details on the technology will be shared “later this year,” Pichai said.
