Gmail AI Update: Know Details

According to a report by IANS, Google has recently introduced a powerful upgrade to its spam detection system. The update, known as RETVec (Resilient and Efficient Text Vectorizer), is a major jump forward in text classification technology.

In simpler terms, Google has improved its ability to identify and block tricky spam tactics, like emails containing special characters, emojis, and typos. The company has claimed that this update is one of the "most substantial" in recent years.

RETVec helps to make text classifiers more efficient and robust. Popular platforms like Gmail, YouTube, and Google Play depend on text classification models to identify harmful content.


One feature of RETVec is its architecture which enables it to work conveniently across all languages and characters.

It is important to note that Google has made RETVec an open-source tool, which allows developers to use its capabilities to invent resilient and efficient text classifiers for server-side and on-device applications.

The tech company has also announced that Gmail is already utilising RETVec to improve its defences against malicious emails and spam. To know more about the new feature, make sure you have updated the Gmail app.
