Google is hot on the heels of Microsoft’s AI push with its own Cloud initiative
With Google’s comprehensive endeavour, businesses and organisations can easily create AI applications on their own. Additionally, Google revealed on Tuesday that its office system Google Workspace will be enhanced with AI capabilities.
The software makes use of Google’s language modelling technology. The internet business also plans to provide users with a development environment (called MakerSuite) so they can create their own AI applications.
By launching this AI effort, Google is rebuffing a Microsoft campaign. The largest software company in the world is attempting to replace conventional Google search with inquiries to an AI system created by Californian start-up OpenAI in order to catch up to Google in critical business areas like online advertising and internet search.
In order to achieve this, the AI technology GPT was incorporated into both the Microsoft online browser and the Bing search engine. It’s also anticipated that Microsoft’s Office tools will be integrated.
The current Google product effort comes before a second Microsoft announcement that is anticipated this Thursday. At an informational gathering last week, Andreas Braun, Microsoft’s director of technology for Germany, said his company would then unveil the new GPT-4 version.
Braun said, “There are multimodal models that will provide totally new possibilities, like videos. It is also necessary to enhance support for various dialects.
The original Google rival is geared towards both businesses and individual consumers. In a presentation, Thomas Kurian, the head of Google Cloud, illustrated how businesses might profit from Google AI by using the hypothetical Cymbal furniture firm as an example. Here, AI applications could be merged with the company’s data, for instance, with the spring collection’s new offers and the furniture store’s product catalogue.
Not just webpage updates would be automated by doing this. The AI might also take over tasks like customer consultation chats where, for instance, a sensible arrangement of various furniture components is reviewed.
When integrating sensitive data from businesses, Kurian emphasised that data security would be strictly guaranteed. Users could use encryption techniques and their own keys in the interim to prevent Google from accessing the data. Additionally, the client data would not be combined with the data set used for the Google public search.
The Google effort also includes what is referred to as generative AI, or content created with the aid of AI. The ChatGPT chatbot developed by OpenAI is the most well-known instance of generative AI. Contrary to ChatGPT, Google’s text bot, Bart, is not yet accessible to the broader public.
In the future, Google will make corresponding features accessible to users of the Google Workplace office suite. This will make it possible to quickly summarise lengthy email conversations or move the findings into a presentation, for instance. In the process, the breadth and tonality can be altered. Google did not yet announce the costs of the AI programming kits and interfaces. These will be released at a later time.
