In response to demand from OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google intends to demonstrate a version of their search engine with chatbot characteristics and introduce at least 20 AI-powered tools. As ChatGPT threatens Google’s search business, rumors claim that CEO Sundar Pichai has declared a “code red” and increased AI development.
According to sources, Google’s AI initiatives include an image-generation tool, an improved version of AI Test Kitchen, a green-screen YouTube mode inspired by TikTok, and a tool that can produce films that summarize previous videos. Microsoft‘s GitHub Copilot product and another that aids in creating mobile apps, Colab + Android Studio, are both comparable to the company’s PaLM-Coder 2 code generating tool.
According to reports, Google is also working on the “Shopping Try-on” function, a Pixel phone wallpaper maker, and AI-driven tools for developers to create Android apps.
This comes after the corporation revealed on Friday that it will be laying off 12,000 staff worldwide. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, stated in an email to staff, he has some difficult news to deliver. They have made the decision to cut 12,000 roles from their staff.
He is sorry for that. He bears full responsibility for the choices that brought them to this point because he is deeply concerned about how these changes will affect Googlers’ lives.
