CEO of Alphabet and Google Inc. Google CEOgave an interview in which he talked about the development of AiCreative artificial intelligence (IA) by the American company and its competitors, and argued that “Deep technology” Humanity worked in this. In this sense, computer genius explained AI He clarified that this would affect all work areas, but that the development of his teams was based on being „in charge from day one”.
Interviewed by a site specializing in technology on the edge, Pichai looks at the promising future of the development of artificial intelligence in the world and how it will affect humans. „I certainly see this as an extraordinary stage shift. It will affect everything more or less: all sectors, all professions, all aspects of our lives,” he noted.
„In a sense, I have called it the most profound technology in which humanity operates.„, he said and continued: „I think it exploits the essence of man. Even in your initial questions, there’s a reason someone would ask about it. I think this shows the nature of AI, so I think it will affect everything we do.”.
In this sense, the executive director of Google since 2015 emphasized that change happens when people accept technology, as with other disruptive technologies, but he admits that from the beginning he assumed this integration with AI „it’s difficult to find the right words, but I see it … even as a business , a very traditional profession. No one would say that the Internet has affected healthcare so much. Has it affected health? I’m not entirely sure. But with AI, I think it will greatly impact healthcare over time. With those terms, I think the term 'platform switching’ has a deeper meaning here too.”.
Last Wednesday, when Google I/O 2023At its annual conference for developers, Google showed What is shaping up to be the evolution of Internet searchesThe company solved the task almost a quarter of a century ago (and turned it into a technology company), but it has not yet seen significant change.
“All of these changes will be disruptive, but I look at the size and scope of the opportunity that lies ahead for AI, and I feel like we’ve done the job. We have invested heavily in AI for so long, and we have the clarity to not only build AI into our products, but clearly deliver it to the rest of the world.. And we have planned from the beginning. So I am excited at this moment,” explained Pichai.
In the same way, he pointed out that it is not a perfect technology, because it still needs to be improved a lot, as in the case of the so-called „hallucination”, when the „machine” finds or fills in information. No, it’s real and it delivers like real. „We’ve made progress on the hallucination problem in the context of looking for foundations that confirm what we’re doing in our classification work. It’s an AI research problem. All companies are going to make progress on the hallucination problem. I’m not saying you can’t use it, you just have to take the time to do it right.”.
After that, he was curious about the timing of AI, because when the Internet came, Google didn’t exist yet, but today the company is a pioneer and a leader in this new technological development. He recalls that despite the fact that it was not the most comfortable sector to move to mobile phones, the company had to adapt them immediately.
„I felt more danger with the mobile phone. We created Android, and I think mobile devices as a company should evolve. We were built on the Internet. At that point, we’ll call your own cell phone company anyway. So mobile was something that came along, and we had to adapt it strongly across all our products. And it’s a disruptive moment,” he said.
„With AI, I feel like this is our seventh year as a pioneering company.. We are AI natives and most teams at Google intuitively understand what it means to use AI in our products,” he added.
Finally, he reflected on what it means to be surrounded by technology from an early age and talked about the expectations of Google and its products integrated with artificial intelligence. „I believe in our mission. For me, access to technology has made a huge difference in my life. So, bringing information and computing to more people to benefit society has been my driving force. From that comes clarity for all the things I need to do.
„I am glad that this historic moment is a turning point. But since I’ve been doing this for 25 years, I know how important it is to be responsible from day one,” he concluded.
