Google has developed a machine learning model that automatically determines if the hours of local businesses are correct. If the times are incorrect, the program instantly updates them to values predicted by artificial intelligence.
There are a few nuances that help determine if the hours listed for a local company are accurate:
- the time the company last updated its business profile;
- the hours of operation of other local companies;
- information from the company's Popular Times;
- door images with hours of operation from Street View.
Google said it plans to update the hours of operation of more than 20 million businesses around the world over the next six months using artificial intelligence.
