  • AI overview is another search optimization feature powered by Google AI Gemini. Being powered by Gemini, good results are expected.
  • AI Overviews can bring out the desired result without even typing the complete query in the search box.
  • With AI Overview and Generative AI, a user doesn’t need to split its query into multiple searches, AI can do this in a single query. 
  • For instance, if you need to ask “find a reasonable two bedroom apartment in Rohini, Delhi, India and show the details of the price it offers along with the time to reach the nearest metro station”
  • Users can adjust their AI Overview according to their requirements.
  • The Side Panel in Google Workspace is also being integrated with Gemini AI by Google. This ensures the user to access all saved information throughout the workspace.
  • Liz Reid (Head of Search at Google) said “Whatever’s on your mind, whatever you need to get done, just ask, and Google will do the googling for you.”

  • Google has also introduced Google Gems to Gemini advanced subscribers which lets you create a customized chatbot and allocate tasks to it accordingly.
  • Google Gemini calls it a Gem. For example, Gemini can create a coding partner for you to advise on coding at regular intervals. The role and the task of the Gem depends totally on the user.
  • Google has a family of lightweight models called the Gemma family. These models are used by the developers to integrate AI into different apps and devices. This doesn’t require much input and less power consumption.
  • Earlier Google has launched two open source models in it having 2 billion and 7 billion parameters. 
  • At this Google I/o developer conference, it has launched Gemma 2 series with a lightweight model with 27 billion parameters.
  • This lightweight model is expected to offer more accurate results to the developers.
  • Vice President of Google Labs, Josh Woodward said “So this 27B size, we’ve picked it intentionally,”
  • PaliGemma is a relatively small and lightweight state of the art model developed by Google capable of combining image and text processing for generating text outputs.
  • It has an understanding of the context and the nuance and can generate human-like language.
  • It has SigLIP-So400m as the image encoder, Gemma-2B as the text decoder.
  • It is capable of doing image caption, visual question answering, entity detection and referring expression segmentation.
  • Today people are moving towards the generation of images from AI. AI generated images can also be used to spread misinformation as well. Therefore to tackle this SynthID has been launched in collaboration with Google Cloud.
  • It is a tool used for watermarking AI generated images. It embeds a digital watermark directly into the pixels of the image.
  • This watermark is not visible to a human eye but can be detected for detection of an AI generated image.
  • Photos generated by Imagen use this to watermark images.
  • LearnLM is a personalized AI Tutor which is designed to help students in their educational work. 
  • Google is incorporating LearnLM into its search, YouTube and other areas to help students resolve educational issues.
  • Google has partnered with Columbia Teachers College, Arizona State University and Khan Academy for testing of this educational AI model. 

After multiple announcements by Google, both Open AI and Google stand edge to edge with each other in the race to become tech AI giant. Both announcements came one after another and have taken the world of AI to next level with the level of outputs produced by them.

Google will be releasing these features very soon and it will be interesting to see in the coming months which tech giant will be rewiring the internet with its features.

The lightning pace of advancement in science and technology has not only streamlined our tasks, but also fostered an irresistible habit of searching for solutions to all our problems on Google.

While Google can offer solutions to everyday issues, it cannot replace the need for an immaculate spiritual guide, who has solutions to all problems in life.

Science purists place science above God, however, we cannot ignore the fact that science fails to explain why a dead body cannot be revived, or who exactly breathes life into a mother’s womb?

A Complete Saint possesses the power to transform the entire world and lead everyone to righteousness and complete salvation. Majority of our problems arise from forgetting God. A True Saint bestows us with the authentic worship of the one Supreme God, absolving our sins and leading us away from all sorrows of life.

Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj is the solitary True Saint in this world who provides worship in alignment with the original directives of the sacred scriptures spanning diverse religions. He enlightens us with the correct interpretations of those scriptures and revealing the true essence of human life.

AI assistants can assist us in day-to-day tasks, but they cannot help you fulfill the primary goal of human life. Discover the true meaning of human life, along with path-breaking spiritual knowledge as elucidated by Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj on:
