Google's speech recognition error rate is now under 5% for US English

It's no secret that one of Google's strengths in recent years has been voice recognition. In my own experience, my Google Home picks up what I am trying to say almost every time, even in a low voice. Obviously the success rate varies by language and accent, but it is still pretty darn impressive.

The Google I/O 2017 ticket application period begins on February 22nd

Google I/O is but months away, so it's right about time to start organizing the trip. There's one problem: tickets. As with previous years, getting tickets is a random affair, with Google making no preference about who attends, developer or not. As such, the application period entry is from February 22 10AM PST until February 27 at 5PM PST.

I/O this year is at the Shoreline Amphitheater - the same venue as last year - in Mountain View, on May 17-19. In 2016, Google gave out sunscreen and sunblock to attendees, although I've heard numerous people grumble about it being too hot, too sunny, and not enough water supplied.

ATAP's Project Soli Gesture Tracking System Is Smaller And Sleeker In Version 2.0, With New Concept Hardware From LG And Harman

It's alright if you've already forgotten about Project Soli - with all of the crazy futuristic stuff that the Google Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team works on, it's easy to get confused. Essentially, Soli is a system that adapts radar-style techniques into tiny hardware in order to enable the tracking of hands and fingers (or anything else, really) which in turn allows software to recognize hand gestures with precision and accuracy that beats anything on the consumer market today. It's pretty cool - watch this video from last year's Google I/O for a crash course.
