[Slashdot] - Google Meet Rolls Out Impressive New Background Noise Cancellation Feature

Recommended Posts

Google is rolling out AI-powered noise cancellation in Google Meet. It's coming to the web first, with iOS and Android following later. The Verge reports: A video produced by VentureBeat shows the software in action, with G Suite's director of product management Serge Lachapelle demonstrating how it can pretty seamlessly remove the sound of crackling crisp packets, clicking pens, or glass clinking. Google's announcement said the tech will also work on dogs barking or the clicking of a keyboard. VentureBeat reports that Google has been working on the feature for around a year and a half, using thousands of its own meetings to train its AI model. YouTube clips of lots of people talking were also used by the team. However, Lachapelle was keen to emphasize that although the feature will improve over time, the company will not directly use external meetings to train it. Instead, it will use customer support channels to try to identify where the software might be going wrong. Google says the processing happens via the cloud and that the data is encrypted during transport. It's also enabled by default, but can be turned off from the audio menu in the settings.
