Summary… * Machine-Made


#Google has updated its #Gboard keyboard app for Android with AI-powered dictation that works offline.
The company says it’s effectively miniaturized a cloud-based neural network system for speech recognition into an 80MB mobile app update, and that it’ll allow for faster and more reliable dictation on the go.
The new system has been in the works since 2014, and it eschews the traditional three-step process for speech recognition for a single-step solution.
We’re going to put #Gboard’s new speech recognition feature through its paces soon.
If you’ve got a Pixel phone, you can try it for yourself by downloading #Gboard from this page.
