Google’s push into artificial intelligence has certainly yielded some impressive results in the past few years, especially in advancing the AI capabilities of its products like Search and Android. In relation to this, the company has revealed that it will be hosting an online streaming event that will feature some major announcements. The event will be streamed on February 8 via YouTube.
Dubbed “Live from Paris,” the event will come with news about developments to Google Search, Maps, and “beyond.” While “beyond” does seem a little vague, online rumors suggest that this might refer to Google’s rival service to Chat GPT. Open AI’s popular service has been in the tech spotlight for some time now, and there’s even reports that it might be eventually integrated into Microsoft’s Bing search engine (Microsoft has also invested into Chat GPT).
With that said however, a lot of this is mostly speculation at this point, although it shouldn’t be too surprising if Google does decide to reveal something about this particular endeavour. More recently, Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressed this topic in the company’s earnings call, saying that Google will “make these language models available, starting with LaMDA, so that people can engage directly with them,” and that the company intends to bring such AI tools for developers, businesses, as well as Alphabet’s own internal operations.
