- The private computing service will provide secure machine learning enhancements to the private computing core of Android 12.
- This involves an intermediate security framework between the core and the cloud.
- It is not clear when the service will go live, but Android 12 will be launched soon.
Google announced a private computing service on Thursday, which will allow the private computing core of Android 12 to safely interact with the cloud and upgrade its machine learning.
Private computing core island data is far away from the rest of the operating system to reduce privacy risks related to machine learning and user data.Some of the Android features currently handled in Core include real-time subtitles — It uses voice recognition to add subtitles to any video -And Smart Reply, it suggests a reply in the messaging app based on the context. If there are no silos, Google and other companies may have a deeper understanding of individual lives.
Private computing services will allow machine learning updates without the need for the core to directly access the Internet, Google Said through its security blog. Specifically, it provides an open source intermediate framework with a variety of privacy technologies, such as codes for removing personally identifiable information.
Google promises to release its source code so that external parties such as security researchers can audit the service.
The company did not disclose when it will actually launch a private computer service. However, Android 12 is only a few days or weeks away from the release, and it makes sense for Core to have an update mechanism.
