CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A robot with true artificial intelligence is about to invade space. The large, round, plastic robot head is part of SpaceX’s latest supply delivery to the International Space Station. Friday’s pre-dawn liftoff also includes two sets of genetically identical female mice, 20 mousestronauts that will pick up where NASA’s identical twin brother astronauts left off a few years ago. Super-caffeinated coffee is also flying up for the space station’s java-craving crew.

Offline translations are now a lot better thanks to on-device AI (google AI)

Just about two years ago we introduced neural machine translation (NMT) to Google Translate, significantly improving accuracy of our online translations. Today, we’re bringing NMT technology offline—on device. This means that the technology will run in the Google Translate apps directly on your Android or iOS device, so that you can get high-quality translations even when you don’t have access to an internet connection.
