Google has now invested around $400 million in AI startup Anthropic and, like Microsoft, is announcing an AI event.
It has since been repeated countless times: Google is quite bored with the developments at ChatGPT. The chatbot could revolutionize the way we use the internet. Bad news for Google, because without a similar AI tool, it seems as if the search engine giant has little to gain. High time to invest in AI yourself, they thought at Google.
Google has of course been investing in AI for some time and is busy with its own language model, called LaMDA. However, that investment does not appear to be enough to keep up with OpenAI in time: Google is now also pouring 400 million dollars into Anthropic, an AI start-up with OpenAI tires.
Anthropic was founded by two former OpenAI executives. Anthropic is working on a chatbot that is very similar to ChatGPT in terms of operation. The Anthropic tool is called Claude, and like ChatGPT, it is a generative model. This means that the AI is able to generate quite long fragments of text in a short time.
You can read everywhere about such generative models lately. That is not surprising: the possibilities of the technology are enormous. Microsoft’s search engine Bing has made the news several times because ChatGPT will be integrated into it. For Microsoft, the ties with OpenAI, in which it recently invested 10 billion, go even further: the American technology giant has planned an event on Tuesday evening in which it wants to explain various ChatGPT integrations.
Google is also planning a similar event, which will take place on February 8. In it, the search engine giant wants to show what role generative models such as ChatGPT and Claude can have for the internet, for Google, and the services it offers. There is a chance that the company will then share information about AI integration in the Google search bar. Before that happens, we will probably see applications in other Google services. The company therefore promises clarity about this soon.
