In short: Nothing.

With an emphasis on incremental improvements to Google’s photo organizing, sharing and search solutions, Google’s maturing solutions are now becoming so easy, efficient, and helpful that many consumers will feel they can’t live without them. Perhaps equally important, Google is opening up more and more of its supporting AI technologies to developers – for companies who can’t afford to hire an army of AI PhDs.

To put the photo-related announcements in perspective, note that Google CEO Sundar Pichai proclaimed that we are shifting from a mobile-first to an AI-first world.
