Google newest AI technologies — like LaMDA, PaLM, Imagen and MusicLM — create entirely new ways to engage with information, from language and images to video and audio.
An now “We’re working to bring these latest AI advancements into our products, starting with Search,” Sundar Pichai (CEO Google and Alphabet) announced on a post published today.
“One of the most exciting opportunities is how AI can deepen our understanding of information and turn it into useful knowledge more efficiently, making it easier for people to get to the heart of what they’re looking for and get things done,” he added.
Distilling complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats
“When people think of Google, they often think of turning to us for quick factual answers, like “how many keys does a piano have?” But increasingly, people are turning to Google for deeper insights and understanding, like “is the piano or guitar easier to learn, and how much practice does each need?” Learning about a topic like this can take a lot of effort to figure out what you really need to know, and people often want to explore a diverse range of opinions or perspectives.
AI can be helpful in these moments, synthesizing insights for questions where there’s no one right answer. Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both piano and guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner.”
These new AI features will begin rolling out on Google Search soon, he said, but Pichai didn’t tell exactly when.
AI developments for years
Sundar Pichai underscores that Google has a long history of using AI to improve Search for billions of people.
“BERT, one of our first Transformer models, was revolutionary in understanding the intricacies of human language. Two years ago, we introduced MUM, which is 1,000 times more powerful than BERT and has next-level and multi-lingual understanding of information which can pick out key moments in videos and provide critical information, including crisis support, in more languages”, he said
