Google’s Vision:

Bringing the benefits of AI to everyone

At Google AI, we’re conducting research that advances the state-of-the-art in the field, applying AI to products and to new domains, and developing tools to ensure that everyone can access AI.

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. AI is helping us do that in exciting new ways, solving problems for our users, our customers, and the world.

AI is making it easier for people to do things every day, whether it’s searching for photos of loved ones, breaking down language barriers in Google Translate, typing emails on the go, or getting things done with the Google Assistant. AI also provides new ways of looking at existing problems, from rethinking healthcare to advancing scientific discovery.

Course Overview:

Language is a complex and adaptable tool that has always been of interest to technology companies like Google. In the past, Google has focused on translating the web and developing machine learning techniques to understand search queries. While these advances have made it easier to access and organize written and spoken information, there is always room for improvement.

One of the most tantalizing puzzles in computer science is conversation, which is one of the most nuanced and versatile forms of language. Conversations can start in one place and end up somewhere entirely different, which can make it difficult for modern conversational agents or chatbots to follow narrow, predefined paths. However, Google’s latest research breakthrough, LaMDA, short for “Language Model for Dialogue Applications,” can engage in a free-flowing way about an endless number of topics. This ability could unlock more natural ways of interacting with technology and new categories of helpful applications.

LaMDA is built on the Transformer neural network architecture that Google Research invented and open-sourced in 2017, which produces a model that can read many words, pay attention to how those words relate to one another, and predict what words it thinks will come next. However, unlike most other language models, LaMDA was trained on dialogue, picking up on the nuances that distinguish open-ended conversation from other forms of language.

LaMDA’s training includes sensibleness, which is whether the response to a given conversational context makes sense, and specificity, which relates clearly to the context of the conversation. LaMDA also focuses on factuality and interestingness, ensuring that its responses are insightful, unexpected, witty, and correct.

While LaMDA’s conversational skills are impressive, Google’s highest priority is ensuring that the technology adheres to AI principles and does not propagate biases, hate speech, or misleading information. To minimize these risks, Google builds and open-sources resources for researchers to analyze models and the data on which they’re trained, scrutinizes LaMDA’s development, and continues to work on incorporating conversational abilities into more products.

Christopher Brock

As a visionary at the intersection of technology and business, I've dedicated my career to harnessing the power of AI, including ChatGPT and OpenAI solutions, to unlock the full potential of businesses. With a rich background in Linux administration, web hosting, server deployments, and cutting-edge solutions like Kubernetes, my primary focus is on accelerating business software development efficiently and effectively. As the founder of Primary Hosting, a Cloud Brokerage Platform boasting over 400 partners in telecom, server, SAAS, and edge technologies, I empower people to leverage technology daily. Beyond running Primary Hosting, I've cultivated a vibrant community of 250,000+ members in our Facebook group "AI founded ChatGPT for Business and Life," and spearheaded initiatives like AI Online Classroom and AI Streaming Intelligence TV station. My work spans a decade of collaborating on teams that developed SAAS platforms, apps, APIs, ad management platforms, and software, all mission-critical and in daily use. Having worked with global brands and Fortune 500 companies, I offer reliable CTO services, often on a fractional basis, to non-profits, mid-market CEOs, and startups, guiding them through formation, advisement, and growth. My expertise lies in creating functional systems that resonate with people, specializing in strategic planning, digital marketing, business modeling, and more. I'm passionate about the startup ecosystem, digital innovation, and the philosophical underpinnings that drive technology forward. Favorite Business Books: "The Four Steps to the Epiphany," "ReWork," and "The Wharton School’s Book of Marketing Metrics." Favorite Philosophers: From Brentano to Chomsky, my interests span phenomenology, mathematics, and the sciences, reflecting my deep appreciation for the brilliant minds shaping our understanding of the world. Let's connect if you're keen on discussing tech, philosophy, or business strategies. Here's to making it a great one! #Linux #OpenAi #CloudBrokerage #DigitalInnovation #AIforBusiness
