The initial developer beta of Google’s forthcoming Android P operating system looks to entice developers with enhancements for Kotlin coding, machine learning, and application compatibility.
The use of Kotlin as a supported language in Android Studio (via a plugin) lets developers improve the performance of their code, Google says.
For on-device machine learning, the Neural Networks API introduced in Android 8.1 will add nine capabilities: Pad, BatchToSpaceND, SpaceToBatchND, Transpose, Strided Slice, Mean, Div, Sub, and Squeeze. The C API runs computationally intensive machine learning operations.
