Google has announced an upcoming live streaming event on YouTube called ‘Live from Paris,’ which will focus on “Search, Maps and beyond.”
The company wants to make it easier for users to discover and interact with information. During the earnings call yesterday, Pichai stated that Google’s plans for AI chat system, LaMDA, will be available in the coming weeks and months. Additionally, Google intends to bring these language models to businesses, developers and Alphabet’s internal operations. It is speculated that this event may give more details about its plans for a ChatGPT rival.
At Google’s I/O event, which is taking place on February 8th at 8:30 AM ET and will be livestreamed on YouTube, the company may show off its AI tools as a response to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
As Microsoft has invested in ChatGPT and plans to integrate it into its Bing search engine, Google is hoping to stay ahead of any criticism that it is lagging behind OpenAI in the natural language chatbot race. However, the event may instead focus solely on Search, Maps, Lens, Shopping and Translate — core products used by many people.
