2. Android meets TensorFlow

TensorFlow is powering google AI. A detailed session on AI technology for production Android apps was conducted. One of the main benefits of TensorFlow is Portability. You can easily move the neural network model to Android and run the prediction inside mobile phones, to do many AI tricks things like image recognition, motion recognition and etc.

Google provided the tips and tricks to overcome the challenges of the model size and CPU consumption for neural network prediction.

3. Performance and Memory improvements in Android Run Time

Android Run Time (ART) is getting major improvements like the new concurrent copying garbage collector (GC) based on read barriers, and improvements to the ahead-of-time (AOT) and just-in-time (JIT) compiler. The new GC will reduce pause times and heap sizes compared to its predecessor.

5. Machine Learning APIs

Google has introduced new machine earning APIs that provide access to pre-trained machine learning models with a single API call. Now you can make use of Google’s machine learning expertise to power your applications. Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers five APIs that provide : Google Cloud Vision API, Cloud Speech API, Cloud Natural Language API, Cloud Translation API and Cloud Video API. Using these APIs, you can focus on adding new features to your app rather than building and training your own custom models.
