Google Maps is introducing more and more artificial intelligence

Google has revealed some details about its plans to use artificial intelligence to update Google Maps in the near and distant future. A mass update of the opening hours of the locations on the Map is expected in the event that the system experiences different results from the opening hours on the data sheet based on the criteria taken into account. The company according to There are 20 million such business pages in the service worldwide, where opening hours will change on the Map over the next 6 months based on values ​​calculated by MI.

The system takes several different aspects into account to determine the current opening hours. These include an analysis of the “popular times” that appear on the data sheets, which will also show users publicly when traffic is expected to be lower or higher in that location. Obviously, when a lot of traffic slips out of the opening hours outside the site, it’s a strong warning sign of outdated information. In addition, artificial intelligence scans the information found in Street View images and the web addresses provided in the company listing. Moreover, the solution also takes into account the opening hours of nearby competing locations and when the data sheet for that location was last updated.

However, opening hours will only change directly on Google Maps data sheets if artificial intelligence has found enough convincing evidence to update. In addition, the system will ask for confirmation from volunteer map editors through the Local Guides program and from the business owner in the Google Business Profile, if a business setting is included. In some countries, even Duplex can call the owner of the company, and the Goole MI system can ask for the actual opening hours by phone – but this is not yet expected in Hungary.

If, on the other hand, the Google system does not find enough conclusive information about the specific date of the changed opening hours, it will only display one form on the form. An inscription will indicate that the opening hours may have changed, so you should inquire by phone before visiting.


Google has also sparked the use of another image recognition technology in connection with speed signs. For the time being, the experiment is only taking place in the United States in conjunction with external partners that provide roadside imagery, from which the company has also begun requesting speed signs. After indicating the artificial intelligence of the image processor and manually checking the operators, the system will also update the speed limits in Google Maps. The post adds that privacy is taken into account when using the images, faces and license plates are obscured, and the images are deleted after the information is used.

Image processing analysis of roads is still in a pilot project phase, but the company hopes it can be effective in signaling Google Maps for potholes, school zones, and new construction over time.
