Google Search will help you know the name of that song in your head


The Google Search application is present in the day-to-day life of consumers of Android mobile phones, which increasingly assumes an important share of the general use of the mobile phone, with billions of users daily. Artificial intelligence has actively contributed to improving the quality of the content presented, but above all, to help in recognizing the diverse needs we face.

The most recent implementation, by the Mountain View giant, occurred or is about to occur on the most diverse devices that make use of Google Search through a set of updates. The “Hum for Search” feature is, according to Google, available as of today for the public. This feature allows you to utter some sounds or a musical humming that is in your memory but for which the name (of the work in question) does not occur to you.

This feature is no longer completely new, given that, the Google Assistant, a feature that makes use of Google services and servers for small interactions and basic features using AI at a distance of a simple “Okay, Google!” to ask your Assistant for tasks like making a call or sending a message.

While in Google Assistant, the user asks “What is this song?” or, in Portuguese, “What song is this?” and the assistant listens for about 10 seconds to what you have to show him: a song. The new functionality, in turn, allows the recognition of sounds that can be identified with a song and not just purely musical sounds – similarly to what happens with Shazam or Soundhound.

The base algorithm constitutes a form of AI, the machine-learning, uses different sequences of data and information to learn how to obtain results more effectively. So, even if you don’t have the best voice, but you know the melody of the song, the algorithm will recognize it or offer countless hypotheses based on what you are really looking for.

In addition to the changes mentioned, Google says that in the usual search, the new algorithm will identify and correct spelling errors in the different search strings that request a solution, say: what to search for. Google will now be able to find data on large pages, so that if you ask a very specific question, it will be able to answer based on some analysis of a product, service or task – so you will spend less time on unnecessary searches.

Google Maps now also has more information associated with available spaces, revealing the capacity or revealing details about the health and safety precautions that must be taken into account in relation to the environment, something very important in view of the pandemic context we are facing at this time.

This is yet another demonstration of how, some lines of code can form algorithms so strong that they can effectively improve or facilitate people’s lives. Google has been a proactive element in this struggle, even if it comes at a price for us consumers. The indiscriminate and sometimes unauthorized offering of our data to a database that manages it the way you want. You think, don’t you?
