The annual Google I/O conference, which takes place in June, always brings exciting new developments from Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai and his team at Google HQ in Mountain View, California. This year’s keynote was no exception, and we now have an even better idea of what the future holds as it relates to computing and other aspects of technology at Alphabet. Let’s take a look at some of the most exciting new developments from this year’s Google I/O 2022 keynote speech from Sundar Pichai.
Google I/O 2022 started off with a keynote speech from Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai
Computing and knowledge have never been more advanced, he said. But as we approach our 20th year of innovation, we must always continue to innovate. He also announced that Google Translate is adding 24 new languages, taking Google Maps to a whole new level, and of course, Android. To learn more about Google’s plans for next year’s Google I/O event at Moscone Center in San Francisco — including news regarding Project Athena and Android Instant Apps — read on!
The most exciting announcements
Sundar Pichai started off his talk by announcing that Google Translate will be adding 24 more languages. The new languages include Arabic, Kurdish, Hindi, Thai, Indonesian and Turkish. This brings Google Translate to a total of 64 languages with more on their way. Google also announced an event at which they’ll be sharing new developments with digital mapping. They’re calling it On The Map, and it will be held in 2020 in Chicago. And finally, they’ve launched a free version of Earth that everyone can use to create virtual tours of their favorite places around the world. It’s like Google Street View but better!
A look at some upcoming new projects
In a keynote speech at Google I/O 2022, Google CEO Sundar Pichai revealed that his company is currently working on dozens of new projects. As part of these developments, 24 new languages will be added to Google Translate over the next four years. There are already plans to include German, French, and Spanish into their translation system by early 2024. The company has also announced plans to introduce a number of highly exciting product launches. They have hinted that they will soon be releasing a product which will revolutionize public transportation for many people around…
Many big names are set to make appearances during Google I/O 2022 including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk. It’s predicted that both men will show up onstage with Pichai in order to announce something completely unexpected. Other features scheduled for Google I/O 2022 include Google Maps 2.0 featuring an update allowing you to search items within a specific location, full integration with self-driving cars in major cities by 2019, and voice recognition software enabling users who can’t type or write…Google I/O 2022 – Third Paragraph: Currently, Google Pixel Slate M3 operates mainly as an eyewear device through which you can take photos or videos, send emails, get directions or use any other app available on your mobile phone.
Sundar claimed that by early 2023, 2 Billion humans will be connected via access to Google’s cloud infrastructure
Sundar announced that Google will be providing 2,500 Petabytes of storage space on Google Cloud Platforms (GCP). He claimed that with GCP, they could provide more computing power than all supercomputers combined. He also said that since its launch in 2018, over 1 billion Android devices had access to GCP services. He then announced that 25 new languages were added to the google translate service and it was now translating content into 71 languages and 24 of those languages were newly added. He further claimed that users could now use their voice to talk in 22 out of these 25 new languages.
25% of all searches will be voice searches in early 2023
Now, many people probably don’t even remember how to conduct a search on Google without first opening a search engine. In fact, few people know how to perform an internet search without using Google. The latest news shows that in 2018 voice searches represented only 10% of all internet searches. This number is expected to double by early 2023. #VoiceSearch #GoogleIo2022.
Another exciting announcement at Google I/O 2022 was about a new assistant app that will work in conjunction with Google Home. It’s called simply Assistant and it will work cross-platform (android, iOS, Mac OS). To access your Assistant you’ll need to say something like ‘okay Google Pixelbook 12in.’ At launch, however, it will be limited to phone calls and messaging. Later updates are planned for flight booking and shopping services so that you can simply talk about what you want – for example ‘Book me a flight’ or ‘Purchase toothpaste’. At launch, however, it will be limited to phone calls and messaging.
Machine learning is at the core of everything we do -Sundar
We see machine learning applied in every Google product, including Search, Translate, and YouTube. For example, our speech recognition system got significantly better thanks to machine learning. We are also making investments in health-related applications of machine learning. For example, with Project Baseline we hope to help doctors make faster diagnoses by applying powerful models trained on large health data sets to new patient scans, CT scans, or MRIs as they enter a doctor’s office.
By 2025 every inch on Earth will have been mapped
With Google Maps, every centimeter of Earth is captured in high-resolution aerial photos, but that’s not enough for Google. In an effort to create a true digital copy of Earth’s surface, Google is investing heavily in drones and satellites. By 2025 Google plans to have a fully mapped planet with topographic data and up-to-date satellite imagery – that means you can actually zoom in on your own house! How cool is that? Google Earth may finally be able to fulfill its promise of allowing users to explore our beautiful blue marble from any angle. If Google has its way, we’ll all be flying around virtual maps of our planet like Iron Man in no time at all. And while some people are excited about flying cars by 2020 (we are too!), Google might just revolutionize transportation sooner than we think. Who knows what else they’ll come up with?
Virtual reality will integrate into everyday life by late 2023
Virtual reality will become an integrated part of everyday life by late 2023. Connecting a VR headset to your smartphone won’t be enough, either; you’ll be able to use it without needing any additional hardware whatsoever. You might even see physical activity tracking integrated into headsets and perhaps a Google-built version that works with Glass or Android Wear 2.0. And finally, thanks to machine learning Google Pixel and Google Translate, speech input could evolve into actual language translation by late 2023 – so if you need to talk in French on your next business trip, you don’t have to worry about bringing a translator along for the ride.

The first six months of 2023 will see breakthroughs in delivering clean energy using artificial intelligence
Google will introduce AI-based nanotechnology that can produce 100% clean energy. We’re going to be able to use AI on our cloud services to generate more power than we need at any given moment, said Jeanine Banks, Google X’s VP, and GM for Developer X. This technology will draw on AlphaGo Zero—the artificial intelligence used by Google DeepMind to train machines to play strategy games. All of Google’s electricity in 2023 will come from solar panels run on AlphaGo Zero-generated clean energy. The company is hoping that other companies and communities see their success with AI-derived clean energy and follow suit; if it works for Google, why not everyone else?
At least 200 cities across China are covered in complete street maps by mid-2023 (aiming for 600 cities total)
For its most recent Maps update, Google relied on data crowdsourced by drivers of vehicles fitted with cameras, lasers, and radar devices. This is all well and good when you have people driving on a variety of streets and roads, but it’s much harder to get comprehensive coverage in major cities where many narrow alleyways can be tricky to navigate. To cover these areas in China, Google has enlisted a fleet of drones that take photos from above. We don’t know when Google plans to unveil new street mapping technology for other countries or how it will work, but with drones already playing a major role in Google Maps in China — as evidenced by my previous attempt at getting around Beijing on foot — we wouldn’t be surprised if similar technology was coming elsewhere.
The Future of Google is Bright – Google has a history of unveiling incredible new products that change our lives and the way we interact with technology. From Search to Translate to Maps, and beyond, Google has consistently pushed innovation forward. Even when it’s not successful – such as Google Glass – they’ve taken lessons learned and turned them into improvements for their future products. With AI research being one of their strongest suits, it’s no surprise that they’re looking ahead to 2022 to bring us more exciting developments!
