Google Unveils Latest AI-Powered Tools: Bard, SGE, PaLM2, And More

Google has unveiled new AI features and an updated version of its core search product at its annual I/O conference in California. The company is incorporating more artificial intelligence into its search product to rival Microsoft’s Bing search engine, which has gained attention due to its use of OpenAI technology. 

The new version, called Search Generative Experience (SGE), is designed to provide more nuanced and personalized responses to open-ended search queries. Google’s cloud division also uses generative AI to create human-like content based on past data and help shoppers search for specific products.

Google has also introduced Immersive View for Maps, a new feature that provides real-time information about weather and traffic on your route. In addition, it boasts the ability to calculate the quickest path in less than two seconds.

Moreover, Google Photos unveiled a new tool called the “Magic Editor” that enables users to modify various aspects of their photos. With the feature, users can alter the lighting of a scene, remove unwanted elements, and adjust positions within the image.

Google’s new PaLM 2 language model comes with improved capabilities in multilingual understanding, reasoning, and coding. It has been trained on text spanning over 100 languages, including scientific papers and web pages with mathematical expressions, and pre-trained on publicly available source code datasets. PaLM 2 excels in programming languages like Python and JavaScript, as well as generates specialized code in languages such as Prolog, Fortran, and Verilog.

What’s New With Bard?

Bard, the large language model released two months ago, has received updates and new features. Bard is becoming more visual, allowing users to include images alongside text in their prompts. Google Lens has been integrated into Bard to analyze uploaded images and provide creative captions.

Bard also introduces coding upgrades, such as source citations, dark theme, and an “export” button, allowing users to move Bard’s responses directly into Gmail and Docs. Google plans to integrate the capabilities of its other apps and services into Bard and to partner with other companies such as Adobe Firefly, Kayak, and Khan Academy.

Google emphasizes that Bard is still a nascent technology with limitations and that maintaining quality and local nuances is a priority.

Google Bard Versus SGE

Google recommends that people continue to use the traditional Google search to find information, including locating products to buy. On the other hand, Bard is an interactive chatbot that has a personality capable of holding conversations similar to humans. It’s designed to facilitate creative collaboration, like generating software code or composing a caption for an image.

Google announced that the Search Generative Experience would not be immediately available to U.S. consumers. Instead, interested individuals must sign up on a waitlist. During the trial phase, the company will assess the search results’ quality, speed, and cost-effectiveness.

Google shared on Wednesday that Bard is now available in 180 countries and territories without a waitlist. The company also intends to expand Bard’s support to 40 languages.
