Google has been the undisputed leader in the AI space for years, but it looks like it might finally be losing its grip. In the last few months, Microsoft has made some serious strides in the AI race with its new chatbot ChatGPT and its upgraded Microsoft Edge.

While Google is still ahead in some areas, Microsoft is quickly catching up. And with its new focus on AI, it seems likely that it will eventually overtake Google as the leading AI company.

Microsoft is making great strides in artificial intelligence, having invested heavily in both tech research and development.

So what happened?

It seems like Google has been resting on its laurels for a while now, while Microsoft has been working hard to improve its AI offerings. Google still has the edge in some areas, but unless they step up their game, they are going to lose the AI race.

During today’s presentation, the company was unable to determine how to respond to Microsoft. Google’s primary AI chatbot, Bard, is not nearly as advanced as Microsoft’s ChatGPT. Bard cannot be integrated into Google search and is not nearly as helpful as other chatbots.

However, Google’s Nora algorithms are nearly as robust as those of Microsoft. Nora can provide the same level of perspective on a query as ChatGPT’s algorithm. NORA is now integrated into the search, and the collection of algorithms provides various perspectives on a query. For example, if you ask her which constellations to watch when looking at the night sky, she will give several independent opinions.

Google Maps has also received an update. Now, the camera can search for places of interest to you, for example, coffee shops. And augmented reality will show where you can find great coffee to drink and where it is generally available. by the way, this feature was lagging in the presentation.

In the presentation, Google’s ChatGPT rival answered a question incorrectly. Now everyone understands why Google panicked about ChatGPT. Bard failed with a rather simple query: “What discoveries of the James Webb telescope can be told to a nine-year-old child?”. The AI believed that the telescope was taking the very first pictures of planets outside the solar system. This is wrong. The first pictures were taken in 2004. Attentive Twitter users, of course, did not let the mistake go unnoticed, and the tweet pointing out the error already has 900k views. Google is definitely having a bad day today.

All in all, it seems that Google is losing the AI race. The company is simply not keeping up with the competition, and it is only a matter of time before they are left in the dust. Microsoft played ahead of the curve, and all Google can hope to do is catch up.

  • Recently, Microsoft has announced that it will be incorporating artificial intelligence into all of its products, starting with the search engine Bing. The new Bing search engine will be powered by the next-generation OpenAI language model, Prometheus, which is designed specifically for search engines and is more powerful than ChatGPT. This will increase relevancy, annotate snippets more accurately, provide more up-to-date results, understand geolocation, and improve security.
  • The race to build the best AI-powered search engine is on, and Microsoft has taken a major step forward by integrating OpenAI into Edge. This will give Bing an edge over Google, as it will be able to understand searchers’ queries in a more natural way. However, the true benefits of search quality are yet to be seen.
