Google enlists the help of Larry Page and Sergey Brin for AI Fight
Google’s Advanced Technology Review Council, an executive panel including Jeff Dean, senior vice president of research and artificial intelligence, and Kent Walker, Google’s president of global affairs and chief legal officer, met less than two weeks after the launch of ChatGPT to discuss their company’s initiatives, according to the slideshow.
They reviewed product plans that were set to debut at Google’s corporate conference in May, including Image Generation Studio, which creates and edits images, and a third version of AI Test Kitchen, an application experiment to test product prototypes.
Other ongoing image and video projects included a feature called Shopping Try-on, a YouTube green screen feature for creating backgrounds; a wallpaper creator for the Pixel smartphone; an app called Maya that visualizes shoes in three dimensions; and a tool that could summarize videos by generating a new one, depending on the slides.
Google has a list of AI programs it plans to offer software developers and other businesses, including imaging technology, which could boost revenue for Google’s cloud division. . There are also tools to help other companies create their own AI prototypes in internet browsers, called MakerSuite, which will have two “Pro” versions, according to the presentation.
In May, Google also plans to announce a tool to make building apps for Android smartphones easier, called Colab+ Android Studio, which will generate, complete and fix code, according to the presentation. Another code generation and completion tool, called PaLM-Coder 2, is also in preparation.
Google executives hope to reaffirm their company’s status as an AI pioneer. The company has been working aggressively on AI for the past decade and has already offered a small number of people a chatbot that could rival ChatGPT, called LaMDA, or Language Model for Dialogue Applications.
