Google I/O 2024 will be all about AI again

Google is preparing to hold its annual Google I/O developer conference next week, and of course, it will be all about AI. The company made no secret of it. Since last year’s I/O, it has launched Gemini, its new, more powerful model intended to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and tested new features for search, Google Maps, and Android. Expect to hear a lot on this topic this year.

Google I/O kicks off on Tuesday, May 14 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. Eastern with a keynote keynote. You can watch it on Google’s website or on its YouTube channel, via the live streaming link also embedded at the top of this page. (There is also a version with an American Sign Language interpreter.) Allow plenty of time for this; I/Os tend to last a few hours.

Google will also likely focus on how it plans to turn your smartphone into an AI gadget. This means more generative AI features for Google’s apps. He’s working on AI features that make it easier to eat and shop or find electric vehicle chargers in Google Maps, for example. Google is also testing a feature that uses AI to call a business and wait for you until there is actually an available human to speak with.

I/O could also see the launch of a new, more personal version of its digital assistant, which would be called “Pixie”. The Gemini-powered assistant is expected to incorporate multimodal features such as the ability to take photos of objects to learn how to use them or get directions to a place to buy them.

This sort of thing could be bad news for devices like the Rabbit R1 and the Human Ai Pin, which were each recently launched and have struggled to justify their existence. At the moment, perhaps the only advantage they have is that it is quite difficult (but not impossible) to successfully use a smartphone as a wearable AI device.
