Google is using AI to help address population changes and humanitarian response through its Open Buildings project, which is an open-access dataset project to identify the locations and geometry of buildings using satellite imagery. This information can be useful for population estimation, urban planning, and aid organizations’ needs assessments in crisis situations. Additionally, Google is partnering with PacBio to quickly and accurately identify genetic variants causing diseases using its deep learning technology, DeepConsensus. Furthermore, Project Relate, an Android app built on AI research, helps people with non-standard speech communicate more easily with others by transcribing speech into text, communicating with Google Assistant, or using a synthesized voice.
