Project Tailwind: Google’s AI-powered note-taking tool, how it works, availability and more

During Google’s I/O 2023 event, the company unveiled various AI-powered tools, including Project Tailwind, an AI notebook designed to enhance note-taking for users. This project aims to leverage AI technology to automatically organize and summarize users’ freeform notes, making the process smarter and more efficient.

Google has recently announced that it will soon offer early access to waitlisted users in the United States, and the project will be rebranded with a new name. Like other AI tools developed by Google, Tailwind is an experimental project.

The target audience for Project Tailwind includes college students, writers, researchers, analysts, and lawyers who need to review and analyze extensive amounts of information.

To utilize Project Tailwind, users can access it through the Google Labs hub for experimental products. It is based on the PaLM 2 large language model (LLM), which is part of Google’s new wave of AI models. Users can select files from Google Drive and create a private AI model.

What sets Project Tailwind apart from other AI models is that it can be trained on users’ personalized data provided by the user. Additionally, the tool creates a personalized interface to assist users in analyzing their notes and documents.

For example, imagine you’re a professor tasked with creating a study guide on Astronomy for your university students based on a specific book. In the traditional approach, reading the entire book would take a considerable amount of time. However, with Project Tailwind, you can access a digital copy from Google Drive and instruct the AI tool to generate a study guide that highlights key concepts.

According to Google, the tool can also suggest questions or generate a reading comprehension quiz. Moreover, it can answer natural language queries about the notes and provide citations from within the book.
