Smart Compose uses AI to figure out what you're trying to talk about and suggest words and even full phrases, like autocorrect on steroids.

Today at Google's I/O 2018 keynote event, the company revealed Smart Compose, new feature for Gmail rolling out soon.

This new feature will be landing in the consumer version of Gmail "in the coming weeks", with support for G Suite users arriving later this year. In one of his initial announcements, Pichai highlighted the fact that they have since fixed the cheeseburger emoji, however, then something else came to his attention.

Another major new feature is that Google Photos can now recognize documents in pictures, and it will tell the user that it can automatically fix it. One of these was something called "Smart Replies" which also employs a set of machine learning algorithms to predict replies for you to an email. Users can easily tap on the suggestions to complete the action. From here, they go to the general tab in settings, scroll down and enable "experimental access". Lastly, the interesting bit is that Google Photos can use AI to separate subject in photos and make the colors pop out. "You'll see these AI-powered creations in the Assistant tab of Google Photos", said Google.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai at the annual I/O developer conference held at Shoreline Amphitheatre in California announced the incorporation of AI while composing emails on Gmail.
