To Compete with ChatGPT, Google Shows Off Chatbot Al

Google will soon introduce its AI search bot amid pressure from ChatGPT. The company is said to be managing the level of risk it takes when it launches the technology. It seems that Google is concerned about the existence of ChatGPT from OpenAI.

These artificial intelligence (AI) based chatbots have taken the tech world by storm over the last few months for their ability to provide users with the information they are looking for in an easy-to-understand format.

Google sees ChatGPT as a threat to its search business and has changed its plans in recent weeks. According to the report, CEO Sundar Pichai declared a "code red" and accelerated the development of artificial intelligence.

Google is reportedly preparing to introduce at least 20 AI and chatbot-based products to its search engine this year, at least some of which will be announced at its I/O conference in May. Google's AI project includes an image creation tool, an enhanced version of AI Test Kitchen (the app used to test prototypes), a green screen styling mode for TikTok, and a tool that can create videos.

There's also a feature called Trial Shopping (probably similar to the one Amazon developed), a wallpaper maker for Pixel phones, and an AI-powered tool that makes it easy for developers to build Android apps.

Meanwhile, Reported by Engadget Tuesday, January 24, 2023 Pichai said he invited Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin last month to meet with current executives to review AI plans and provide input.

The two founders haven't had much involvement with the company since 2019, they don't have much day-to-day interaction with the company as they focus on other projects.

Google has been working to speed up the product approval process and ensure that AI-based technologies are fair and ethical.

In addition, the company is managing the level of risk it takes when launching the technology. Priorities for introducing search chat appear to include security, accuracy, and avoiding misinformation. As for Google's other major products and tools, the company has a lower threshold and seeks to contain rather than prevent issues of outrage and toxicity, harm and misinformation.

Recently, Google has been careful about launching new products. The product reportedly lists "copyright, privacy, and antitrust" as the most important risks of AI technology.

The need for a solution to block copyrighted material and prevent the spread of personal data. In recent years, Google's artificial intelligence ethics have come under attack. Two leading AI ethics researchers, Timnit Gebru and Margaret Mitchell, say they have been fired from Google.

Gebru and Mitchell accused Google of censoring critical studies of AI language learning models, including concerns that they encoded biases found in training data. Two other prominent ethicists left Google early last year following the resignations of Gebru and Mitchell.

It's not hard to see why Google is said to be in panic mode over ChatGPT. First, it was announced earlier this month that Microsoft (an OpenAI investor) plans to add some ChatGPT-enabled technology to Bing.

The company announced this week that it will soon be integrating ChatGPT with its Azure OpenAI service. The latest report on Google's response to ChatGPT comes shortly after the company announced it would lay off 12,000 people.

"I am confident about the tremendous opportunity ahead, driven by the strength of our mission, the value of our products and services, and our initial investment in artificial intelligence, for it to fully materialize, we must make tough choices," Pichai wrote in a memo to employees.

The CEO added that the company is preparing to release some completely new experiences for users, developers and businesses.

There are great opportunities ahead of us with artificial intelligence in our products, and we are ready to approach them with courage and responsibility.
