AI News:

Google held its I/O event this year, focusing heavily on Google’s Gemini AI models and how they’re being integrated into apps like Workspace and Chrome, all in an effort to compete with major AI leaders like OpenAI.

Key Points:

  1. Project Astra: Google’s ultimate AI assistant that can see and reason about what's around you. It’s similar to ChatGPT-4o and might power a future pair of glasses. Watch the demo above.

  2. Veo, Google’s new AI video generator. We would be impressed if it weren’t for Sora, OpenAI’s (far superior) text-to-video model.

  3. Imagen 3, Google’s newest text-to-image model. Genuinely impressed by this one. The people look very, very real

  4. Music AI Sandbox, Google’s take on creating music using AI.

    3. PaLI-3—a fresh open-source vision model.

    4. Gemini Live—a talking feature for Gemini similar to ChatGPT Voice Mode coming later this year.

Google just kicked off its I/O Developer’s Conference, announcing a wide array of updates across its AI ecosystem — including enhancements across its flagship Gemini model family and a new video generation model to rival OpenAI’s Sora.

Google announced a host of new AI integrations coming to Android phones at its I/O Developer Conference, bringing its powerful Gemini model on-device to enable upgraded smartphone experiences.

Google just showcased its new AI agent project ‘Project Astra’, alongside a slew of updates to infuse AI across search and enable Gemini to reason and take more advanced actions for users.
