Lamda: The language model that wants to revolutionize chatpots

Google’s most interesting ad is about Lambda, a California group “Revolutionary Conversation Technology”. Voice has been of interest to Google for many years, and its conference has used its advances and its language model known as lambda (a language model for conversational applications) that promises to make conversations with a machine more natural. Google simulated two demonstrations with a paper airplane and a conversation with the planet Pluto. These examples helped to present the level of capabilities of the language site and are already designed as a tool of the future for chatpots. Lambda can take the place of a company or an individual to interact with Internet users.

Google will automate the password change process

In terms of security, Google has announced improvements to its password manager. The California company will alert you when the password is compromised, and its Chrome browser can do the same for you. This approach aims to reduce the risk associated with using the same password for multiple accounts and is part of Google’s vision to strengthen the security of user accounts. At the Chrome level, a new Quick Delete function appears to clear the last 15 minutes of a user’s search history.

Google Photo: Locked folder to control your memories

Finally, Google Photos will improve its “Memories” management and photo classification. The tool can compile photos according to a specific visible element (like a bag) or color. Photos will also use the snapshots you take to create an animated image, which echoes the “Cinema” feature introduced by the company in December and allows you to create 3D versions of your photos. In the Security field, you can now better control your gallery and create a locked folder. This will store photos in a password protected location so they do not appear in Google Photo or any other application. This functionality will first be provided in pixels before being extended to other devices running Android.
