Get ready to see your route planning from a whole new perspective. The new Google Maps feature compiles all the necessary information (traffic, cycle paths, intersections, parking, etc.) in one place.
Using computer vision and AI, Immersive View merges billions of Street View and aerial images to create a digital model of the world. It’s like a dress rehearsal before D-Day.

Universal Translator, dubbing
Presented at Google’s I/O conference, the Universal Translator aims to transpose videos from one language to another, while preserving the original intonation and atmosphere. It is actually a lip-synced translator.

Indeed, you have understood correctly: the translated video adjusts the speaker’s labial movements to correspond to the expressions specific to the target language.
Sidekick, the personal assistant for Google Docs

The tool can also generate images based on the content of the document, helping to illustrate the story as it is written. Google has also demonstrated its ability to summarize written conversations, offer speaker notes, and more.
