Google IO is that a Voice Device in Your Pocket
Hey guys, good morning Mark Phillips back with the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. Good to be back with you guys. And today we’re going to talk a little bit about Google IO. So, you know, we build for Alexa and for Google. So we take a great interest in the Google IO show, because they usually have a lot of announcements about what they’re going to do in the technology space for developers and others. And so this was no exception, although a little bit of a different experience in the voice realm this time around. But I think maybe we’ll go over some of those announcements and just talk a little bit about what they mean maybe. So the thing that we think maybe was interesting, this time, that’s a little bit different. And really kind of a breakthrough is this ability to take the language models that were hundreds of gigabytes in size. And basically compress those down to a model that’s about a half a gig that will fit on a phone. So that is a kind of a voice device in your pocket now that doesn’t have to go out on the web to get the the smarts of the natural language understanding that it needs because it can do everything on device that has some implications for privacy, because, again, you don’t have to go out to the web to understand things or the cloud that is to understand things. And then it also has some implications for speed and performance and the ability to do things at the edge, if you will. So we talked about edge use cases, edge devices, and now the phone becomes this kind of edge device that doesn’t need processing in the cloud. So anyway, we will talk more about Google IO announcements tomorrow please do hop over to the skill store and give us a good review that helps increase our listenership. This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing and thanks lot guys.
