This week, Google had their yearly I/O developer conference. They announced a slew of new AI-powered features for their services, from automatic subtitles for any video on an Android device to an menu-reading AR app that shows you photos of popular dishes at a restaurant.
OpenAI also responded to community concerns by open-sourcing a larger version of their GPT-2 language model, and Dropbox published a deep dive on the process of building a machine learning document recommendation feature into their app.
