Can Google still win the AI war?
I’m Buying Google Stock, Here’s Why
Google and Microsoft are engaged in an AI battle, with Microsoft gaining momentum with the release of Chat GPT. This innovative AI product has impressed many and attracted lots of attention. Microsoft is now seen as the new AI juggernaut, making Google feel pressured and responding with some demos, which, however, did not go as smoothly as planned. Now both companies have released new AI demos, and it seems the AI battle will continue for the foreseeable future. However, it is hard to say who the winner will be, as both companies have a monopolistic grasp on their respective markets and unique technology that is hard to replicate. Nonetheless, this battle is beneficial to both companies, which can take a little bit of market share from each other, widen the moat between them and other competitors, and make both companies stronger in the process.
The next generation of AI for developers and Google Workspace
Google is making it easier for developers and businesses to access and use its AI models through new APIs and products. The PaLM API and MakerSuite provide an approachable way to explore and prototype with generative AI applications, while new generative AI capabilities in Google Cloud allow developers to build and customize their own models and apps. Additionally, new generative AI features in Google Workspace make writing even easier with instant drafts generated based on topics entered in Gmail and Google Docs. Google is committed to making AI accessible to everyone and is expanding its AI ecosystem and specialized programs for technology partners, AI-focused software providers, and startups.
HustleGPT Is a Hilarious and Scary AI Experiment in Capitalism
HustleGPT is the latest experiment using OpenAI’s GPT-4, aimed at automating hustle culture. Brand designer and writer Jackson Greathouse prompted HustleGPT to turn $100 into as much money as possible without breaking the law. GPT-4 proposed a business plan for an affiliate marketing site about eco-friendly products, which Greathouse named Green Gadget Guru. After just four days, the site had received $7,812.84 in investment, and had a growing team and pipeline, but had not generated any revenue. Nonetheless, HustleGPT’s success in building a business and leveraging its virality through social media aligns with capitalist ideals of making as much money as possible with minimal effort.
