Artificial Intelligence: Google Tries To Close The Gap With Microsoft On AI

Google made the announcement at its annual developer conference.

Google is introducing generative artificial intelligence (AI) to its core search engine in a move to compete with Microsoft’s GPT-4 on Bing. The new feature, called Search Generative Experience, will craft responses to open-ended queries but is still in the experimental phase and only available to a limited number of users. It was announced at the search giant’s annual developer conference.

Google’s parent company, Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL), is also launching a new feature on Google’s Android system that will proactively warn users about unknown AirTags. The technology is a tiny device developed by Apple to track personal items, but some users claim that they are being stalked through the device. (BBC)

The Google annual developer conference also unveiled a $1,799 phone that opens and closes like a book, the removal of the waitlist for “Bard”, Google’s conversational chat service, and the ability for the chatbot to respond to prompts with images as well as text.

Google’s reputation for artificial intelligence was tarnished earlier this year when its conversational chat service, Bard, incorrectly answered a question in an advert intended to demonstrate its capabilities.

Microsoft-backed (NASDAQ: MSFT) ChatGPT technology and Chinese tech giant Baidu’s (HKG: 9888) chatbot, Ernie, also have artificial intelligence capabilities. Despite this, Google has been predicted to dominate the AI industry by Chirag Dekate, an analyst at Gartner.
