What a great tool! It actually suggested a Moto X (and the S5, S6) for me, got it right on!
 
Next time a relative asks "Which phone should I get?"

I'm pointing them here -> https://www.android.com/phones/whichphone/#/

Great tool, +Google 

For the record, it recommended Galaxy S6 Edge and LG G4 for me. Not bad haha

They even assembled a fully working Project ARA phone on stage!

One of the super cool projects the Google ATAP team is working on! Imagine having the ability to interact with our electronics through gesture. Minority report is starting to take form!

David Amerland originally shared to Semantic Search:
 
The Impact of Semantic Technologies

Suppose we could use a high frame rate capture to build a gesture pipeline and understand human intent? Preposterous as that sentence may sound, Google's Project Soli, does just that. 

This is an important piece of development even if it never sees the light of day because it exemplifies, exactly what semantic technologies are all about. The interface between human and machine, person and device, becomes intuitive, tactile, user-friendly. Instead of us learning a new programming language that would allow us to interface with the device, it learns to decode ours. Both, human and machine, gravitate towards the same space: usability. 

The device stops feeling like a machine and it becomes a tool, like a pencil or a pen, we use to achieve something. Yet, and here's the big difference, the device is not just learning, it is actually developing. It captures signals that will be used to make it better. It learns to understand the patterns of our behavior so that it understands the intent of our gestures. At that point, the device and ourselves, inhabit the same abstract semantic space. Its function and our intent are united by the same language. 

Semantic technologies will not just change our lives by allowing us to learn new things or do some things easier. They will change our lives by getting rid of the traditional machine/human barrier. In the Star Trek computer (to give an example Google search is emulating) the crew of the USS Enterprise never think that they are talking to an alien entity, an AI that may not think like they do. They use voice to interface directly certain that the intent of their question is perfectly understood, as is its context. Both the ship computer and the human occupants occupy the same cognitive space. Though they are different, that difference is not a barrier. :)
