Google's Talk to Books lets you browse books with the help of AI

Google launched a new experience today that it's calling Talk to Books. It's pretty much what it sounds like: the demo asks for input in the form of regular old sentences, then tries to locate logical responses to those sentences from a pool of books. In a post on its Developer Blog, Google calls Talk to Books "an entirely new way to explore books by starting at the sentence level, rather than the author or topic level."

Google's Emoji Scavenger Hunt is a browser-based game that tries to make machine learning fun and accessible

"Machine learning" and "neural network" are familiar terms to anyone who follows what Google is up to these days, but they may not be the most accessible or comprehensible concepts for the masses. And that's fine — you don't need to have a firm grasp of machine learning to enjoy better photos or keyboards, for instance. Still, Google has been quietly showcasing ways for users to get more hands-on with these concepts, and the latest such experiment is a game called Emoji Scavenger Hunt.

MediaTek announces Helio P60 SoC with promises of better power efficiency, core performance, and AI experiences

MediaTek is one of those chip manufacturers that we do not hear much about in the U.S. The only notable exclusion to that rule is BLU Products, which includes some MediaTek SoCs in its phones. While MTK is a far cry from Qualcomm and Samsung in terms of raw power and such, the company does play an important role in providing high-performance-per-dollar SoCs for budget and low-end phones. For MWC, MediaTek announced the new Helio P60 chip, complete with typical MTK promises.

LG details its Vision AI and Voice AI, which will debut on the 2018 version of the V30

Last week we heard rumors that LG would announce an updated version of the LG V30 at Mobile World Congress, which lines up well with the previous reports that the company won't release new devices on a yearly schedule and that the expected G7 was scrapped and a new design was being worked on. The other part of the V30 leak was an emphasis on the addition of an AI of sorts called "LG Lens." LG, as it always does prior to major events, has out-leaked everyone and confirmed this by announcing a new 2018 version of the V30 which comes with new AI functionalities.
