5 Best Google AI Experiments to Explore Artificial Intelligence

Posted on

Wherever the cutting edge of technology is, Google is not lagging far behind. Alternatively, they’ve extracted the enormous Google wallet from the unfathomably deep Google pockets, and are cutting a check to stay ahead of their competitors.  computer science computer science computer science computer science computer science

Artificial intelligence is no different.

Google has several AI experiments that you can go and play with right now. And because several of these experiments depend on machine learning, your direct interaction will actually help development. Here are some of the best Google AI Experiments that you can play with right now. computer science computer science

Please note that some of the experiments require access to a camera, either through your desktop or an Android device. computer science computer science computer science computer science computer science

1. Thing Translator

I’ve had quite a bit of fun with Thing Translator. Why? Because you can walk around your house, scanning items, listening to the instant translations into one of nine languages. It is surprisingly addictive.

Thing Translator doesn’t know what everything is, but it tries to translate anything you throw at it. For some objects, it defaults to “image,” and certain spaces default to “design.” computer science computer science computer science

That said, Thing Translator can catch you off-guard. I took a picture of my face and received the response “hair” — pretty apt, considering my beard, but not the “face” or “boy/man” response I was expecting.

Again, my kids pointed it at the rug on the floor, expecting it say “rug” or “carpet,” but Thing Translator came back with “crochet.” When you take a snap, it shows percentages of what it thought the image was, versus what it has translated.

Thing Translator isn’t a 100 percent fool-proof translation device, as you’ve seen. But it would certainly help you out in a pinch, especially if you’re in a well-connected foreign country using one of the integrated languages.

To use Thing Translator, you’ll need an Android smartphone with a camera, or a computer with camera. Thing Translator is currently unavailable for iOS users. computer science computer science

Future Use

Thing Translator is already in use in several places, and you can use it so long as you have an internet connection. As the algorithm learns, the precision of its translated results will increase. Expect to see it as an integrated Android feature, or at least as an app marketed at travelers.

Please note that the version of Thing Translator on the Google Play Store is a rip-off of the actual product. Don’t download it — it could be a scam!
