Google is preparing to introduce at least 20 AI-powered tools and a search chatbot in May
Press reports indicate that in response to competition from OpenAI’s ChatGPT, tech giant Google plans to unveil at least 20 AI-powered products, including a search chatbot, at its annual developer conference in May. According to Engadget, the AI-driven chatbot ChatGPT has taken the tech industry by storm in recent months because it provides users with the information they want in an approachable manner.
Since ChatGPT poses a danger to Google’s search business, CEO Sundar Pichai has issued a “code red” and prioritized AI development. According to a slide deck, the tech giant is working on a number of artificial intelligence (AI) projects, some of which include an image generation tool, an improved version of AI Test Kitchen, a YouTube green screen mode similar to TikTok, and a tool that can generate videos that summarize other clips.
The business is also likely developing a feature called “Shopping Try-on,” as well as a wallpaper maker for Pixel phones and AI-driven tools that may aid developers in the creation of Android applications. The presentation also highlighted “copyright, privacy, and antitrust” as potential problems associated with AI.
“Pichai reportedly brought in Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin last month to meet with current leaders, review AI plans, and offer input,” the report said.
