Google Maps to Deliver More Personal Recommendations Based on Machine Learning

Google Maps to Deliver More Personal Recommendations Based on Machine Learning

Google is not forgetting Google Maps, one of its most popular apps and services, as it uncovers a few new brand new features.

Subscriptions to premium news outlets can now easily be done through Google News, without the need of manually putting in credit card and other information by the end-user, if so desired.

It will contain top trending lists like the Foodie List to show you where the tastemakers are eating, and help you find new restaurants based on info from local experts, Google's algorithms, and trusted publishers. The feature basically predicts the new restaurants that users will likely prefer based on data about the places they've visited before and frequented in the past.

You will also be able to "cut and paste" the text to add to your own documents, just by holding your phone's camera up to the writing. It uses machine learning to produce the match score in combination with reviews on hundreds of millions of places left by human visitors. If you've ever wandered around in circles trying to figure out which direction your little blue dot was moving in the Maps app, this is for you. A user long-presses on any place on Maps to add it to the list, and then they can share it on any platform and let friends add places to the list.

Instead of relying on an unclear blue dot while walking around a cluttered city, Google suggests this camera-fueled augmented reality interface may one day save the day. Instead you'll get curated lists of what's good based on the area or neighborhood you're looking up.

Instead of a top-down map, users will be able to see the street in front of them through the camera, with an AR overlay arrow pointing the direction and distance. VPS will help Maps to figure out where you are, what direction you're now pointed in and then help you get where you need to go.

Google announced today at Google I/O that some new features are coming to Google Maps.
