Google to warn when humans chat with convincing bots

Saturday, 12 May, 2018

Beginning this year, LG and Google began collaborating to develop a wide range of features and are working on expanding consumer accessibility in multiple languages. This is being done as Qualcomm is programing some of its processors including the Snapdragon 845, Snapdragon 660 and more with Android P so OEMs can easily roll it out to their handsets with these processors. But that's not the end of it.

Google wants you to be able to manage your phone usage better; this new bundle feature allows you to set a limit to use for every app.

When it's Gmail, the Android smartphone operating platform, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Maps, and also, obviously, Google Hunt - the business is amassing gigabytes of information about you. So the feature is fully available in the Android P Beta. Some of that DP1 behavior was a little too aggressive, so Google's dialing back things like the decision to disable the ability to automatically connect to Wi-Fi when disconnected from Bluetooth. Researchers from Berkeley have said that they can even alter audio files "to cancel out the sound that the speech recognition system was supposed to hear and replace it with a sound that would be transcribed differently by machines while being almost undetectable to the human ear". While the Do not disturbed mode is now much more aware of what to block and what stays.

The presentation was promptly succeeded by a heated discussion about whether people answering the phone had to be briefed they're speaking with an artificial intelligence software and how technology can be misused in the guise of more credible "thefts" by marketers or even during political propaganda. All because of a button? The ball is in Apple's court and it needs to prove that it can still compete with Google and Amazon on this front.

The swiping up feature to see the open applications is similar in both Android P and the iPhone X. However, they are somehow different in function. The iPhone maker never went out of its way to explain the inspiration, of course. This is not exclusive to the preview, and is also hitting Wear 2.0 users at large. After so many years of using Android? At the annual developers conference, head of Android Security, David Kleidermacher, reportedly revealed details about the changes that are coming to Android P, in terms of security.

The popular recents menu on Android has seen some key changes with Android P, including a big change that sees it switch from a vertical stack-based look to a horizontal card-based display. I guess it just took the company almost a decade to realize that it doesn't need that third button.
