    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    I don't need AI to guess what I want to do on my device, I just want the OS to be designed well so that I can easily do what I want to do on my own accord.

    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    I think that this has the possibility (or probability) of being intensely irritating!

    I really don't want to be second guessed by my device!

    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    The areas this AI is supposedly able to help are areas where I excel. Indeed, my finger IS capable of opening an app with one touch. It doesn't get much faster than that, even if you read through my life history and have the phone try to predict which one of not many apps I'm aiming for.

    Didn't watch the video but I don't like the concept of this "pill" either. Still, security updates are welcome.

    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    This is going to be annoying and turned off. HTC (I think) tried to do something similar by having a widget that showed most used apps and tried to predict what you wanted, changing the apps present on the widget. It was a rubbish waste of time as speedy and swift interaction on a phone happens when you know where things are and what they will do. Having buttons move around is annoying and means you have to go hunting. Having the device prod you to alert you that you might want Google maps is also annoying. When you're rushing to get ready for work and the phone buzzes at you, you think it might be work telling you to go to a different site or something so you check it and you find it's google wasting your time telling you that your commute is going to take 31.29 minutes and that the weather is sunny. I know my commute will take that long, I don't have a choice on route and I can see it's sunny - I have windows.

    Having extra notifications offering you stuff you don't want (like a map to where it thinks you're going) is annoying as it gets in the way of the stuff you want like messages or emails or voicemails. The whole point of notifications is to distil down the information into what you need so you don't need to view multiple sources and sort it yourself. Bombarding you with loads of extra notifications defeats the point. Samsung tried to push AI on me and I've just turned it all off. It just interferes far more than it ever helps. Same with Cortana, same with Siri. The only one I use is Amazon's and even then it's fairly limited to stuff that's more just voice recognition of set commands.

    This is "AI" being pressed into service where it is neither needed nor desirable and I do hope we get to disable it. Also, I expect the extra processing required to monitor and analyse your activities will come at a decent battery life cost. It's 12.49 and my battery is at 60% with hardly any use. I doubt an "AI" is going to improve my battery life more than the cost of processing of the same "AI".

    Yeh, I didn't sleep well and I'm very grumpy.

    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    The reason they want to push AI,as its a bigger load on the CPUs of older devices,hence pushing you to get newer ones with faster SOCs.

    They obviously want to have their Pie and eat it!

    I'd imagine the CPU usage wouldn't increase as they'll offload all the ML and AI stuff to Google's shady servers

    Disappointed by the name too, at least make it "Pecan Pie", "Pumpkin Pie", or something more pudding-ish (and American). Why not just "Pudding".

    There will still be a processing overhead as well as a Tx overhead. Battery life will suffer as a result, especially on older devices.

    Re: Android 9 Pie is "powered by AI"

    Interesting, there is a Google API for AI which I expect an old SoC won't support. I wonder if this will limit which devices can get Android P.


    ... and yes, Pie is a stupid name, could be steak and onion and not a dessert. But then I never liked the taste of Oreos either and at least I like pies.

    Pie would only be an acceptable name of the version number is 3.14
