I/O 2017 Highlights - Google's Quest to Have AI for Everything


Google is leveraging its capacity to empower developers with free software to create a global AI ecosystem.

Meet Google's TensorFlow. TensorFlow is a software tool for designing and training AI algorithms for machine learning. Google made TensorFlow available to anyone as open-source software in 2015. Since then, it's been the preferred option of the AI community for creating innovative tools for countless industries.

At Google's I/O 2017 developer conference, Google announced the second generation Tensor Processor Unit (TPU)--a special purpose computing chip designed for machine learning. And Google will donate 1,000 Cloud TPUs to top researchers.

Google launched a new version of TensorFlow for Android devices, Tensorflow Lite. With 2 billion Android users now, TensorFlow Lite is the software foundation for a tremendous amount of decentralized machine learning capability.

Google's strong relationship with developers has fostered its growing stronghold on AI and machine learning technologies.
