GOOGLE, CRYPTO — This new Google feature makes AI more accessible and user-friendly, which will inevitably lead to a shift in how businesses leverage AI. It’s a proven fact that increasing productivity and efficiency can help you achieve your goals. In a recent announcement, Google made the PaLM API, one of its most sophisticated AI language models, available to programmers.
According to Google, the PaLM API will allow businesses to “generate text, graphics, code, video, audio, and more from simple natural language signals.” This is in addition to utilizing Google’s other enterprise AI capabilities. Similarly to OpenAI’s GPT series or the Meta LLaMA family of models, PaLM is a large language model (LLM). PaLM can take on more complex tasks thanks to its ability to learn from both structured and unstructured data.
The first version of Google PaLM was released in April of 2022. It is a versatile system that can, in theory, handle any work requiring the production or modification of text, much like other LLMs. You can program PaLM to perform tasks like summarizing text, turn it into a chatbot like ChatGPT, or teach it to code. PaLM stands out from other LLMs due to its multitask training on activities like machine translation and question answering.
To hasten the creation of smarter robots and programs, Google has simplified the process of generating and deploying machine learning models. Making AI more accessible is a goal shared by MakerSuite and the PaLM API. In addition to the PaLM API, Google is also releasing a new tool called MakerSuite, which will streamline the process by which developers provide PaLM instructions for doing various tasks. You can make new models, add manufactured data to your existing dataset, and rerun queries with MakerSuite.
Google argues that the fine-tuning necessary to produce a user-friendly AI system may even be done in a browser, while Google Cloud handles the computationally demanding training and deployment work. With the release of the PaLM API, Google is enhancing the Vertex AI platform’s generative AI capabilities. Vertex AI is a service that facilitates the creation and distribution of machine learning software.
The “Generative AI App Builder” platform from Google is also new today. “enables developers to swiftly build new experiences,” the company claims, “like bots, chat interfaces, custom search engines, digital assistants, and more.” The Generative AI App Builder uses Google’s machine learning technologies to make it possible to create such experiences with little to no coding. It is hoped that developing mobile applications will take much less effort and time with the help of this new platform.
The business claims that in the future, Vertex will be able to connect to open-source and external systems and gain access to additional models built by Google Research and its affiliate DeepMind. This revision opens the door for businesses to create their own models for a broad variety of applications, such as the creation of images and text. More freedom and variety in the way models can be built is possible with open-source software and creative ideas.
