📄 Generative AI on Google Cloud
The bot rivalry is heating up as Google announced a number of new generative artificial intelligence tools to attract more users.
The Alphabet-owned company said it is bringing generative AI to its Workspace suite, first to Gmail and Google Docs.
Developers and businesses can now try new APIs and products that make it easy, safe, and scalable to start building with Google’s best AI models through Google Cloud and a new prototyping environment called MakerSuite. And in Google Workspace, we’re introducing new features that help people harness the power of generative AI to create, connect and collaborate
- Thoman Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud
Google will launch new tools this month through its trusted tester programme, starting with English in the US.
With this, the power of generative AI can now be easily unlocked.
Thanks to Google Cloud, bringing with it an era of technologies that can naturally and responsibly develop, recommend, synthesize, analyze, and interact.

👨💼 Corporate AI: companies that have adopted GPT-4
GPT-4 is the newest natural language processing model developed by OpenAI.
It’s a transformer-based neural network designed to generate human-like text. The model is trained on a dataset of billions of words and can generate text that is realistic and coherent.
We are all aware of generative AI in tools of Microsoft and Google, but even as several other firms around the world evaluate and understand the new AI model, some others have made a head start.
Stripe uses GPT-4 to parse complex sites and answer documentation questions resulting in accurate and helpful answers to users, thus improving the overall experience with the platform.
Microsoft-owned LinkedIn got early access to GPT-4, thanks to its parent company’s investments into the AI research firm.
The new features identify the most important skills and experiences that can be highlighted. They also make suggestions to help make a profile stand out.
