We live in a day and age when everything else is smart except perhaps the person sitting next to you. But kidding aside, smart technology probably defines the era we now live in. Can you imagine living without all the modern conveniences you have today? Over the years, technology gradually improved to the point that is has become smart itself. While it offers a lot of benefits, it also has its drawbacks.
Perhaps the next big thing to hit the virtual world after the smart technology is the rise of artificial intelligence. We see it now with technologies like Amazon’s Alexa and Echo. They may not be able to think for themselves yet but they give us an idea of what to expect in the future. It’s probably something like that but 10, 20, 30 to 100 times better than the existing AI technology we currently have.
Google is all abuzz with AI talks that used to be just words said on thin air. But now, it’s not only tangible but a reality we will all be living in sooner rather than later. The company is more devoted now than ever to developing AI technologies to help them realize their goals of becoming an AI-first company.
It may seem that there is so much going in with Google right now and it’s quite natural to come to the conclusion that the company got it all figured out but the truth is they don’t. There are certain obstacles they haven’t fully overcome yet but it does not mean that they will give up just like that.
While Amazon may have initiated the early years of AI’s foray with the public, Google wants to enjoy their share of the pie too. The company released Google Assistant and Google Lens to compete with the technologies currently offered by Amazon among others. And to think that Google is one of the most powerful tech companies in the world today, we are sure they’d be able to make use of their vast resources to excel in this field. They may have their fair share of hits and misses over the years but the fact that they did not immediately dived into this foray early on just goes to show they put more thought and effort into this endeavor to make sure it’s a success right from the start.
