Google News uses AI to give you the news you wantGoogle has given its News feature a refresh for 2018, including a new design and 'Newscasts' for the stories you're interested in.
So let's start with how to make it easy for you to keep up with the news you care about. As soon as I open Google News, right at the top, I get a briefing with the top five stories I need to know right now. As I move past my briefing, there are more stories selected, just for me. Our AI constantly reads the [UNKNOWN] of the web for you. The millions of articles, videos, podcasts, and comments being published every minute and assembles the key things you need to know. Google News also pulls in local voices and use about events in my area. It's this kind of information that makes me feel connected to my community. What's cool is I didn't have to tell the app that I follow politics, love to bike, or want information about the bay area. It works right out of the box. And because we've applied techniques like enforcement learning throughout the app, the more I use it, the better it gets. And at any point I can just in and say whether I want to see less or more of a given publisher or topic. You can see there are lots of big gorgeous images that make this app super engaging and a truly great video experience. Let's take a look. [MUSIC] [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] This brings you all the latest videos and around the WIM we're also excited to introduce a new visual format we call Newscasts. You're not gonna see this in any other news app. Newscasts are kinda like a preview of the story and they make it easier for you to get a feel for what's going on Check out this one on the Star Wars movie. Here we're using the latest developments in natural language understanding to bring together everything from the Solo movie trailer, to news articles, to quotes, and from the cast, and more, in a fresh presentation that looks absolutely great on your phone. Newscasts, [INAUDIBLE] mean easy way to get the basics and decide where I wanna dive in more deeply. Full coverage is an invitation to learn more. It gives a complete picture of a story in terms of how it's being reported from a variety of sources and in a variety of format. We assemble full coverage using a technique we call temporal call locality. This technique enables us to map our relationship between entities and understand the people, places and things in a story right as it evolves. We apply this [UNKNOWN] information that we publish to the web at the moment and then organize it around any story line All in real time. This is by far the most powerful feature of the app and provides a whole new way to dig into the news.
