The Implications of Recent AI Announcements

Last week Google announced Generative AI for Google Workspace. Not to be outdone, a few hours later, Open AI announced GPT-4 — perhaps the most advanced large language learning model ever.

Ben Parr breaks down these announcements and, more importantly, what they mean for consumers AND for the future of tech and A.I.

Draft, reply and summarize your emails. Literally you can say, “summarize this email conversation” to Gmail, and it will summarize it.

Brainstorm, proofread, write, and rewrite in Google Docs. It’s interconnected with your Gmail, so you could ask Google to write a brief about an email chain and it’ll place that summary in Google Docs. You can highlight a section and ask Google to rewrite it. You can even give it instructions on how to sound.

Auto-generated images, audio, and video in Slides. It will build a presentation off a Google Doc. Imagine writing out the bullet points for a fundraising deck and having Google just… build it. Including the images!
