This week, Google kicked off its annual developer conference, a three-day event which is typically packed with juicy launches and this year didn't fail to deliver, with major announcements on Google Home, Assistant, Google Lens and more.
Last month at the annual Facebook F8 conference, where Mark Zuckerberg stands up and forecasts the future of social media and tech, we were given a new proclamation: that we will soon see an end to smartphones and TV.
All the talk last week has been of Google DeepMind playing, and beating, the world champion of Go. I don't know the game Go well, but I have read that it is so complex that it was previously thought a computer could not beat a top human player. Until now of course, as Google Deepmind's AlphaGo has used Artificial Intelligence (AI) to finally beat a person - South Korea's Lee Se-dol - who turned pro at the age of 12 and has won 18 world championships!
