 AI is an intelligent technology that makes computer work smartly like an intelligent human, and Pichai says machine learning and AI will “allow you to use your voice to search for information, to translate the web from one language to another, to filter the spam from your inbox, to search for “hugs” in your photos and actually pull up pictures of people hugging ... to solve many of the problems we encounter in daily life. It’s what has allowed us to build products that get better over time, making them increasingly useful and helpful.”

 
Not only that, he says AI can “help us in everything from accomplishing our daily tasks and travels, to eventually tackling even bigger challenges like climate change and cancer diagnosis.”
 
Pichai envisages that the concept of “device” will fade away, and that our computer experiences will “likely to be built in the cloud”.
 
“Over time, the computer itself—whatever its form factor—will be an intelligent assistant helping you through your day. We will move from mobile first to an AI first world,” he wrote in a letter published on Thursday in the official Google Blog.
 
He feels that cloud is “more secure, more cost effective” and provides “the ability to easily take advantage of the latest technology advances, be it more automated operations, machine learning, or more intelligent office productivity tools.”
