Get ready to say goodbye to the days of dull and tedious business proposals and meeting summaries. Google has just announced a game-changing development that’s set to revolutionize the way we work. Imagine your Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and even Meet and Chat being transformed into your very own AI-powered collaborative partner. That’s right, the future is here and it’s all thanks to the genius minds of Google developers.
According to Johanna Voolich Wright, vice president of product for Google Workspace, these AI tools are going to be a game-changer when it comes to brainstorming, proofreading, and writing and rewriting documents in Google Docs. Say goodbye to the hassle of creating visuals for your presentations because Slides will now create auto-generated audio, images, and video for you. And, as if that wasn’t enough, Sheets will now autogenerate formulas, making it easier than ever to crunch numbers and analyze data.
But that’s not all – AI will now be your personal assistant in Google Meet and Chat, taking notes and enabling workflows to make sure you get things done. With this groundbreaking development, you’ll have an AI-powered partner that’s always there to help you, making work easier, more efficient, and even more fun.
On a single day in March, both OpenAI and Microsoft made groundbreaking announcements that are set to transform the world of artificial intelligence. OpenAI launched GPT-4, the newest iteration of their language model, while Microsoft opened up its powerful Bing AI search capabilities to the public.
But that’s not all. On March 16, Microsoft unveiled Copilot, an AI assistant for the Office 365 suite. This announcement comes on the heels of a deeply unsettling conversation that a tech writer had with Bing’s AI, which sent shockwaves through the internet and ignited calls for greater AI regulation.
Despite the controversy, software developers remain convinced that the more we use AI, the more its kinks will be worked out. In fact, Microsoft published a blog post in February thanking users for playing with its Edge chatbot and acknowledging that it’s only by learning from real-world experiences that we can improve AI and maintain safety and trust.
With these developments, it’s clear that the future is now when it comes to AI. And as HR professionals, it’s up to us to stay on top of the latest trends and technologies in order to help our organizations stay ahead of the curve.
According to Johanna Voolich Wright, vice president of product for Google Workspace, the company will iterate and refine the AI experiences before making them available more broadly to consumers, small businesses, enterprises, and educational institutions in more countries and languages. It’s all part of Google’s ongoing mission to transform creation and collaboration in the same way they revolutionized real-time collaboration with co-authoring in Docs 17 years ago.
