In the American scientific and technological circles, Seattle occasionally has to work with Silicon Valley. Beijing time May 7th evening, Microsoft global Developers Conference Build2018 held in Seattle state conference center. Then, in May 8th, the Google I/O Conference opened in the open-air theater of Californias mountain view. The opening hours of the two were only one day. Behind this, there are many business superpositions and competitions among the two big technology giants steering by two India CEO. Because of the largest desktop and mobile operating systems in the world, Microsoft and Google were once interpreted by the industry as the two representatives of the PC era and the post PC era. But no matter which era leader, at the almost ubiquitous AI, this years Microsoft Build conference and the Google I/O conference are all about artificial intelligence. The reality is that in todays hottest AI market, Microsoft and Amazon from Seattle are calling apple and Google coming out of Silicon Valley. AIfirst Google One year after the announcement of the MobilefirsttoAIfirst strategy, Google has become more and more firm on the road of AI. But more than discussing AI technology itself, Google is now paying more attention to infiltrating AI into its various products and trying to build an ecology that combines hardware, software, and AI. This years I/O developer conference, Google CEO Sander Pichai (SundarPichai), says the demand for information practicality and accessibility remains as urgent as Googles 20 years ago. Whats different is that people are capable of sorting out information and solving complex problems in the real world, thanks to the progress of AI. Google assistant, a voice assistant launched in May 19, 2016, is based on Googles experience in machine learning, Natural Language Processing and search. This year, Google aides have been upgraded again. Pichai said that relying on Googles progress in natural language understanding, there is no need to say HeyGoogle before every instruction. At the same time, apart from the original voice, the Google assistants voice library added 6 different sounds, including the voice of the highly recognizable American legendary singer JohnLegend. One of the most watched scenes at the event was the time when Google assistant called to make a hair styling appointment for a hairdresser. The whole process of conversation was natural and smooth, and the clerk who answered the phone didnt seem to realize that AI was talking to him. The new technology is Google Duplex, part of Googles assistant. It can answer questions and execute additional tasks according to orders. The phone calls are not as smooth as expected, but voice assistants can handle gracefully, he said. If handled properly, this will save time and create a lot of value for the enterprise. The most important thing in building ecology is to integrate all of them. Google is also working hard to integrate hardware, software and AI. It is worth mentioning that, on the day of the above developers conference, Google announced that 500 million devices have been connected to Google voice aides and support more than 30 languages. This is also an important part of Googles AI strategy, with voice search tools built on as many devices as possible for the market of competitors such as Amazons Alexa voice assistant and the smart sound box Echo. Google has dominated the Internet, and now Amazon Alexa provides a new interactive mode of interaction with computers and access to information, which makes Google feel a threat. Earlier, Dean said that Googles ultimate goal in the field of artificial intelligence was three: using AI and machine learning to make Google products more practical; helping enterprises and external developers to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to innovate; to provide researchers with better tools to solve the major challenges facing humans. Microsofts AI family barrel At the same time of the Microsoft Build developer conference last year, Microsoft CEO Satir Satir announced that Microsofts strategy was transformed from mobile first, cloud first to smart cloud and intelligent edge computing, which was proposed in 2014. On Microsoft Build2018 a year later, Microsoft continued the strategy, announcing a series of developer services including AI, cloud computing, data, sensors and devices, using AI throughout all its own products. Chinese companies occupy a considerable position in this years Microsoft Build conference. Dajiang, Xiaomi, HUAWEI and a Chinese artificial intelligence platform company named Roboo have appeared in Nadellas speech. However, Amazons appearance is still more eye-catching. Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa are actually a pair of competitors, but on this years Build2018, Microsoft demonstrates this scenario of enemy integration. This is Amazons first appearance at Microsoft Developers Conference. Although Amazon, Microsoft, apple and Google have launched their own digital assistants, the four products have not been compatible with each other. Amazon and Microsoft seem to have been bitter about Amazons and Googles honeymoon period on artificial intelligence. In its annual report to the SEC in February 2017, Googles parent company even put Amazon at the top of all competitors, suggesting that the two are competing on cloud computing, search and voice control devices. Prior to this, Googles artificial intelligence product AlphaGo has challenged the go players to create a lot of artificial intelligence worldwide. To this, even Microsofts global executive vice president, Microsoft artificial intelligence and Microsoft research business director Shen Xiangyang also said in the artificial intelligence of IQ, the friends of the artificial intelligence products AlphaGo do well. Let Shen to the ocean is proud of CCTVs first tact on the program, and AlphaGo chess player kje kjie called himself a fan of Microsoft small ice.
