Google’s New AI-Powered Search Update: Personalized Trip Planning and Portfolio Debates in UI/UX Design

Google has just released a new update in 40 cities across the United States and Canada, providing users with recommendations on where to eat and visit. The application’s algorithmic recommendations include a weekly updated “trending” list of popular sites, historically popular locations, and hidden gems worth exploring. Additionally, the app displays recommendations from sources such as the “New York Times” and “Lonely Planet.”

Google plans to incorporate artificial intelligence into its search feature, allowing users to search for complete trip itineraries based on specific preferences. These itineraries will include information on flights, hotels, local attractions, and dining options. Google will also offer details about recommended locations such as business information, reviews, and photos that can be exported to Google Docs and email for convenience.

Aside from these updates, Google is enhancing its Circle to Search software with new translation capabilities. Users can now translate content on their screens by long-pressing the home button and tapping the translate icon. This feature is currently available on select devices but will be rolled out to more Android devices this week. The translation software will become available in the coming weeks.

When it comes to UI/UX designers’ portfolios, there is an ongoing debate in the industry about their importance in job searches. While some designers argue that portfolios are no longer necessary, others believe they still play a significant role in finding new opportunities. To gain more insights into this topic or receive advice from individuals who have recently transitioned jobs or are currently exploring new opportunities, you can join the discussion on Reddit or seek advice from Glassdoor.
