Practice English Speaking&Listening with: The Try Guys Try 13 Future Technologies At Google

Difficulty: 0

(digital piano music)

- [Eugene] Find it.


- The Try Guys! (laughs)

- Wow.

- That's our theme song. (screams)

We are here at I/O, Google's annual developer festival.

- Where developers from around the world

come together to show off their hot tech.

- Today, we are gonna get to try

the technology of the future.

- We're gonna experience AR, AI, beeps and boops.

- This video is sponsored by Google,

and that's literally the only way we could be here,

'cause you can't come unless you work on something cool.

- [Ned] It's 7,000 incredibly smart people,

and we're here too.

- Google has given us the keys to the campus,

which means I can do whatever I want.

- I think it's gonna be an I/Opening experience.


(upbeat music)

- My name is Marvin Chow, and I run

consumer marketing at Google.

- So, you're looking for people here

to have an I/Opening experience?

- [Marvin] Google I/O is basically a festival

about the positive effects of technology.

It's everything from experiments

to new ways to look at technology

that we hope to bring to all developers around the world.

- I heard this is the hottest festival ticket

in the tech circuit.

- Personally, I'm trying to use this technology

to make myself more beautiful.

Is it possible?


- I went through like a brief programming phase,

so I've made some graphing calculator games.

- I'm here for two things today:

fun and free stuff!

I'm gonna come home today with at least three computers.

- So, we're here to explore future technologies.

What kind of future tech can we see?

- You hear a lot about augmented reality,

you hear about virtual reality, right?

Augmented reality is literally

placing digital objects in the world,

like putting a face filter on your face,

that's augmented reality,

but it's going even further than that,

like getting really close to animals.

- Today, we introduced this feature called AR in Search.

- So, you may have all seen

a great white shark in the movies,

but what does it actually look like up close?

So, let's go ahead,

search for great white shark on Google.

As you scroll through, you get information

on the knowledge panel, facts,

but also see the shark in 3D

directly from the knowledge panel.

- So, imagine a kid is like,

oh, I wish I knew how big a tiger was.

You can show them a picture of it,

but it's gonna seem super tiny.

You can do AR in Search,

and you'll just see tiger, life-sized,

right in front of you. - Most of my life,

I thought that penguins were as big as me,

because I never saw them in scale with any other thing,

and then apparently, they're not.

- I think most people kind of got a good idea

of how big a penguin is.

- I just thought they were big!

- On three, put your hand out

to say how big you think a penguin is.

- [All] Two, three.

- I used to think they were here.

- Guys, they're not that small!

- Have you never been to a zoo?

- No, so when I went to the zoo,

I thought they only have the small penguins.

- Well, there's only one way to resolve this.

- [Eugene] Who's the closest?

- [Amanda] Eugene.

- [Ned] Whoa!

- [Keith] How close am I?

- [Amanda] You're a little off.

You're about a foot off.

- [Zach] Tiny tiger, tiny tiger!

Oh, technology is so fun!

- [Eugene] He's right above you, reach up, Zach!

- Go faster!

Oh, turn that way!

- It's gonna go further than that

with all types of things,

where, when you need digital help in the world,

that's gonna help you there.

- Through your phone camera,

you'll be able to see overlaid graphics

that are in context with the real world.

- That's hot.

This is some hot tech.

- [Blue Shirt] Google Maps will take you

through the streets, but once you arrive at a venue,

then this can give you more contextual information

other you itself.

- So, virtual reality puts you in a digital world,

augmented reality puts the digital in the real world.

- Oh my god, you should work here!

That was perfect!

You wanna trade?

- I/Opening technologies.

(all laugh)

(techno music)

- So, Google Lens is a computer vision technology we have,

which allows us to understand thing that we see

through the camera on your phone.

I think a great thing we launched today

was menu mode on Google Lens.

- Say you're at a restaurant,

trying to figure out what to order.

You can simply point your camera.

Lens automatically highlights the popular dishes

at this restaurant.

- How does it know what the best things on the menu are?

- So, it uses data from Google Maps.

So, using people's reviews,

it will be able to pick out which one's most popular.

- So, I wouldn't have to eat everything on the menu

to know what's best?

- No.

- All right, it's just really cutting into my business,


- [Marvin] The types of really simple,

but really hard problems that we wanna solve.

- Artificial intelligence.

How would you describe that for anyone

who doesn't know what that is?

- I mean, it's a big word, it gets thrown around a lot,

but I think it essentially is this idea

of teaching a computer to learn.

- We developed an app called Dance Like,

which basically helps you become a better dancer.

We basically take a virtual fingerprint

of you on the screen, and we give you feedback

on how aligned you are with the dancer.

- So, this will be perfect for say, I don't know,

three really extremely, excruciatingly terrible dancers.

- Yeah, that's right, yep.

- All right, lemme help you get loose.

There we go.

- So, lemme help you get loose to get him loose.

- Thank you.

- Hip-Hop 101, Ned loves hip-hop.

- [Ned] No!

- Afrobeat, I believe, is very good for Keith.

Advanced House 101.

Oh, this is definitely Zach.

(electronic music)

- It's you doing the dance,

so what we're doing is we're trying to give you

a very good instruction,

based on a body part identification.

- Dude, you're crushing it!

- You're doing good!

- You killed it!

- Pretty good!

- It's easier to learn when you slow things down,

and if you do it in a slow-mo version,

we can then basically speed you up

and sync with the real-time dancer.

- [Eugene] Did you all develop this

because your professional dancers?

- [Tim] I'm actually a terrible dancer!

- [Eugene] The face of I/O.

- [Zach] I'm terrified in the face! (laughs)

Technology is fun.

- [Eugene] Nice!

- I felt really good about that.

I thought that I nailed it.

- AI is basically like a three- or four-year-old.

And I have two daughters, seven and five,

and I think if anyone has kids,

it's like, teaching a kid to learn,

you start teaching them how to read,

learn letters, simple sentences,

we're kind of at that stage.

- If you put the machine in learning mode,

it allows you to use your hand to create a character

that will appear on the screen

and then interact with the rest of the characters.

- So, they're like shadow puppets

that become more than that?

- [Miguel] That's right.

- If I just make one of these shapes, like the horse.

- [All] Oh my god!

- My hands!

- [Eugene] There he goes!

- [Keith] Wow!

- [Ned] Wow!

- What you're saying is, the character that's already there,

the man, someone already created him

and he's just in the story?

- Yes. - That's right.

So, what we like is to sort of think about

how we can use artificial intelligence

to kind of recreate all traditional art forms.

- Am I a man or a woman?

- Profile.

Oh, you are a...

Oh, you're a man.

- Yay!

- I think there are some people

that just think about Google as the search engine, right?

But you guys, as a company,

you're doing a lot to really impact the world.

- Yeah, we're building things like digital assistants,

we're helping with cancer research,

all kinds of things that we think are helpful to everybody.

- I'm Carla Bromberg, the program lead

for AI for Social Good.

Our program aims to accelerate the application

of artificial intelligence and machine learning

to the world's biggest

humanitarian and environmental and social issues.

We're doing bioacoustic sound research to understand whales.

- [Eugene] You're protecting whales with AI?

- [Carla] Yes!

- That's amazing!

(machines whirring) (whales singing)

- There's a lot of whales in here.

- Hopefully, we can just all protect and conserve

more wildlife and understand more species.

- Imagine if you had 19 years compiled of just you?

What would that sound like?

(Zach whines)

(Eugene laughs)

- This is our Flood Forecasting Initiative.

It's helping warn people when there's a flood

so that they can evacuate.

- Floods are the most common,

deadliest natural disasters on the planet.

20% of flood fatalities happen in India alone.

- This is a simulation of 48 hours of a flood zone.

And this is the Google public alert,

and this shows you where a flood situations happens,

both in Google Maps and Google Search.

We hope this has a really big impact,

and also inspires other people,

'cause there's a lot of other ways

that we think artificial intelligence can help

save lives and protect the environment.

- Maybe technology is here to remind us

that the real beauty is in the real world.

- [Keith] Oh, he's so huge!

Oh my god!

(techno music)

- My name is Irene, and I'm a creative developer

at a place called the Creative Lab.

So, we have a page called Experiments with Google,

and it's a website where we collect projects

from developers all over the world.

Anybody can use it, and there's open-source code

if you wanna learn how it was made.

- So, this is Seeing Music.

It's part of our create-ability experiments,

and we worked with Jay Alan Zimmerman, he's a deaf composer.

- Did you say he's a deaf composer?

- Yeah, he's a deaf composer.

He became deaf later in life,

and he teaches a bunch of different students,

many of which also are deaf.

And so, we created a visualization tool

for him and his class to use, to visualize their music.

So, using what's called a Hilbert scope,

which is a really helpful way to visualize audio.

- Wow!

So, when he was designing this

Did he ever think, I said, did he ever think

That it'd be used like this

- This is exactly how he hoped it would work.

- What if we all sang in it at the same time,

but a different note?

- Oh yeah, okay.

(all singing)

- Oh. - Oh, man.

- Well, that sounded the best we've ever sounded.

- Yeah, that sounded really nice.

We should join the Google a cappella group!

If they had one, I'd put it in the video right now.




(digital piano music)

- That's a nice little jazz rhythm right there.

- We've been working on a project called Magenta,

which is working on using machine learning

to enable artists and musicians

to express themselves in new kinds of ways.

We made this algorithm that takes playing piano

and maps it down just onto eight buttons,

and we figured, what's more interesting

than hitting buttons is touching fruit.

- This is musical fruit.

- This is the most musical fruit we could find.

(digital piano music)

- Oh my god!


That's the most a-peel-ing I've ever found a banana.

To be totally honest, I don't care how it works,

I just wanna touch the fruit, but how does it work?

- There's two parts of it.

There's the, how does touching this fruit make sound,

which is, there's some electrodes

that are stuck into each of these pieces of fruit.

What we're here to do is actually taking these signals

and turning them into a pitch.

- What's interesting is you notice every time I touch it,

there's different notes coming out,

and that's this machine-learning model

that's saying, okay, well, if you're touching this

a bunch of times, I'm gonna try to make it sound

something like piano.

It's not just one note per thing.

And also, an important part of what we do with Magenta,

is we're a big open-source project.

So, if someone wants to make their own,

they can just go to the webpage

and download software and do their own thing.

- Can I do it with dominoes?

- You could do it with dominoes!

- Wow, dominoes!

- And a one, two, three, four!

(digital piano music)

- Have you had this many men touching the fruit at once?

- [Jesse] Never.

- Cool.

(digital piano music)

- At the end of the day, I learned a lot at Google.

I saw technologies that wowed me,

technologies that shocked me.

What really left the biggest impact on me was the people.

And at the end of the summer, the world hadn't changed.

I changed.

Thanks, Google I/O,

for showing me all the wonders of the world.

(digital piano music)

It's so beautiful!

(Keith screams)

We have one more thing left.

At night, this place gets turnt!

We're gonna play around in neon lights,

and I'm gonna get as much free stuff as possible.

Let's party!

Vegan ice cream. - Free included!

- Yes!

Thanks again to Google for sponsoring this video,

but also, thanks for making the world cooler.

- I know I made a lot of jokes

about this being an eye-opening experience,

but it really was.

I got to have my face be stupid,

there were animals next to me that weren't really there.

- The fact that we got to learn about technology

that is saving this whales or helping prevent floods,

that's amazing!

- All of you watching at home,

who found us through a search engine,

all of that was discussed probably five or 10 years prior

at something like this!

- Since the beginning of Google,

we have been a company that's dedicated

to really helping people.

Our real hope is that the interactions

and the people that the developers meet,

they spawn new projects and new ideas

that are gonna be super helpful in the future.

- After today, I can confidently say

the world's hottest festival is Google I/O.

- [All] Thanks, Google!

- That was truly--

- [All] An I/Opening experience!

- They're not gonna make that the tagline.

- Well.

(upbeat music)

Do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do

Ti, la, sol, fa, mi, re, do

- [Man] That's all the songs we know!

- This is so cool, seeing a hologram of a choir.
