For the second week in a row, our Question of the Week episode focuses on a developer event, this time around Google’s I/O conference. We focus mostly on the first day keynote, which covered a ton of ground in two hours, from a general pitch around Google’s AI and machine learning capabilities to the Google Assistant and Home, Google Photos, YouTube, Android, and VR and AR. We discuss most of these things and the overall structure and focus and what it says about Google’s strategy.
