Google to Launch Cutting-Edge AI Chatbot in May Amidst Growing Competition The race to the top of AI technology is heating up, and Google is determined to take the lead. With the growing popularity of AI chatbots, particularly OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google is stepping up its game and preparing to unveil a powerful chatbot rival in May. This move comes after Google’s top management declared a “code red” to compete with ChatGPT and stay ahead of the curve.
Google plans to showcase its chatbot search engine, along with over 20 other AI projects, at the May I/O conference. The demo of the chatbot will prioritize accuracy, safety, and combating misinformation, and will be equipped with features to compete with rivals. Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, have been consulted by company executives to provide advice on competing with the increasing competition.
The New York Times reported on Google’s multiple AI projects in development, including an image generation tool, a product prototype testing app, and a green screen mode for YouTube similar to TikTok. However, Google is proceeding cautiously with its AI tech releases, enhancing its product approval processes, including fairness and ethics reviews, to ensure the safety and reliability of its products.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated that the company is preparing to show “some entirely new experiences for users, developers, and businesses.” Despite growing competition concerns, Google recognizes the growth of ChatGPT and is determined to stay ahead of the trend.
However, this move comes at a cost, as Google faced criticism for laying off over 12,000 employees. Nevertheless, the company remains committed to advancing its AI technology and providing cutting-edge products to its users.
The integration of ChatGPT into Bing by Microsoft and its recent partnership with OpenAI only add to Google’s challenges. But the tech giant is determined to stay ahead of the game and lead the way in AI technology.
