How Google’s AI updates impact you: Insights from Tech & Science Daily podcast

Google’s Annual Developer Conference Announces Expanded Artificial Intelligence Offerings

Google has announced an expansion of its artificial intelligence offerings at its annual developer conference, with even the world’s most popular search engine undergoing an AI makeover. The Standard’s Business & Technology Correspondent, Simon Hunt, shares the major announcements from the tech giant. The conference featured an impressive array of AI announcements, coming shortly after OpenAI unveiled GPT-4o, indicating the intense competition in the generative AI space.

Cancer Research UK-funded studies by Professor Ruth Travis from Oxford Population Health at Oxford University have shown that blood proteins can potentially warn of cancer seven years before a diagnosis. This groundbreaking discovery could revolutionize the way cancer is detected and prevented in the future. However, further research is still required to determine the specific role of these proteins in cancer development, identify the most reliable ones to test for, and determine which drugs could target these proteins.

In other news, Bumble has apologized for controversial billboards that referenced celibacy and acknowledged making a mistake after backlash from users online over their latest ad campaign. One of the billboards read “You know full well a vow of celibacy is not the answer.” Meanwhile, scientists have discovered a new species of giant jellyfish and certain parts of Paris will be off-limits this summer without a QR code. You can listen to more in-depth coverage on Apple, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Google’s Expansion into AI: What it Means for You

The world’s largest search engine company has announced that it will expand its artificial intelligence offerings even further with an AI makeover to its search engine itself.

The announcement came during Google’s annual developer conference where CEO Sundar Pichai announced several major changes to Google’s products and services.

One of those changes was Google Assistant’s ability to understand natural language queries better than ever before.

Pichai also announced that Google Translate would now be able to translate images as well as text.

Another major announcement was Google’s expansion into generative AI with its new product called Genesis.

Genesis allows users to generate human-like text based on prompts provided by them.

This expansion into generative AI comes after OpenAI unveiled GPT-4o earlier this year, indicating just how intense competition is in this space.
