Google and Microsot entered into a direct competition regarding the implementation of generative artificial intelligence models (generative AI), and even if Microsoft seemed to have an advance, at the event I/O, Google introduced a number of tools AI for Google Workspace, plus many other applications and services. This integration also has a name - Duet AI.
Microsoft 365 Copilot, is the most notable implementation of artificial intelligence. I say this because the suite of applications Office it is used on a very large scale throughout the world. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, plus other applications of the suite are used both within companies and by pupils, students or simple users who need to create and edit documents.
Google Workspace (former. G Suite), is the correspondent service of the application suite Microsoft 365. Google Workspace includes products and services offered by Google, designed to facilitate collaboration and efficient communication within organizations. Gmail, Google Sheets, Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Drive, are just some of the products and services offered through Google Workspace.
Duet AI for Google Workspace plus many other Google services
Google's plan is to introduce its own models AI generative in almost every component a Workspace. From composing Gmail messages, to writing or editing documents with the online application Google Docs, generation of calculation formulas and reports Google Sheets, up to the creation of text, images, audio and video in Google Slides.
In other words, Google launched itself in direct competition with Microsoft 365 Copilot. It is expected that Microsoft will soon come with new announcements to reveal new implementations Duet AI for applications and services.
"This next phase consists in bringing people to the point of being supported by a collaborator AI who works in real time together with them", he declared Google Cloud CEO, Thomas Kurian.
In addition, Kurian promises that Google will constantly release new features every two weeks.
The less pleasant part for many artificial intelligence enthusiasts is that both Microsoft and Google currently do not offer these new functions to the general public. Microsoft recently announced that it has expanded the range of testers for Microsoft 365 Copilot, while Google has announced that these new functions are currently only available to a limited number of testers, Google Workspace. Without being very clear on what criteria the company chose these tester accounts.
In conclusion, we can say that the race for the development and implementation of artificial intelligence in everyday life has officially started.
Beside Duet AI for Workspace, Google has recently brought significant updates for Google Bard, which seems to be getting closer to a launch for the general public, in all the countries where the company is present.
Google Bard was recently moved from the model LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), on the language model PaLM 2. A state-of-the-art language model, with improved capabilities in terms of multilingualism, reasoning and programming.
At present, Google Bard is available in 180 countries, in the following languages: English, Japanese and Korean.
