Google recently showcased a range of artificial intelligence (AI) tools and updated models during its annual I/O conference, which will soon be integrated across all of the company’s major products.
Google updated its Pathways Language Model (PaLM) to PaLM 2, which boasts new features such as reasoning, coding and multilingualism capabilities. PaLM 2 will come in various sizes, with one model iteration that can be used on mobile phones.
Google’s Bard, which is similar to Microsoft’s Bing OpenAI ChatGPT, also received a broad rollout in more than 180 countries after its initial launch in the US and UK two months ago. The improved conversational AI model features upgraded coding abilities and more precise citations.
Google has also integrated PaLM 2 and other AI models into many other products such as Google Maps, Docs, Mail, and Photos. Google demonstrated the new AI-powered features, including the AI-charged version of Gmail’s “Smart Compose” feature, which can automatically generate email responses using a prompt.
The Search Generative Experience (SGE) feature will soon offer AI backup for Google Search, as it collates information from web pages and delivers it in a ChatGPT-like response in Google Search. It is set to undergo a limited experimental launch for selected US users.
