Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) kicks off 2014’s Google I/O conference on Wednesday at 12 p.m. EDT (9 a.m. PDT), and this year the tech giant is offering a live stream of the keynote address and all sessions offered at the developers' conference. Google is expected to unveil several new products at I/O 2014, including a new version of Android called Android L, and a new set-top box program called Android TV.
Google’s live stream of I/O 2014 will include the event's keynote address -- during which the company will unveil details about Android L and the number of Android installations worldwide -- and several of the sessions throughout the day. Click here to watch the Google I/O 2014 live stream.
At Google I/O 2014, the live streamed sessions are hosted by several different employees of the Mountain View, California company. This includes sessions with Regina Dugan, former DARPA head in charge of Google’s Advanced Technology and Products (ATAP), which develops the company’s modular smartphone experiment, Project Ara.
While many Google I/O 2014 sessions are targeted at software developers, several of them may interest the general Google, science or technology fan. Scientist Ray Kurzweil will host a talk on artificial intelligence at I/O 2014 called “Biologically inspired models of intelligence,” which Google will live stream worldwide.
Google confirmed on late Tuesday that it will begin selling a new version of Google Glass with a larger battery and more memory (RAM) to allow the headset to have more programs open at once. It looks like Google trying to make sure that I/O 2014 isn't the snoozefest that it was last year.
