Google Latest AI technology advances in artificial intelligence will radically transform the way we use information, with the ability to uncover new insights that can help us both in our daily lives and in the ways we are able to tackle complex global challenges.
Google in its blog shared how they are bringing the latest in AI to Google’s products, giving people new ways to search and explore information in more natural and intuitive ways.
Google New AI Algorithm – Making multimodal search possible with Multi Task Unified Model
Earlier this year at Google I/O, announced it reached a critical milestone for understanding information with Multitask Unified Model, or MUM for short.
Google experimenting with using MUM’s capabilities to make their products more helpful and enable entirely new ways to search. Here is what will be possible with MUM.
In the coming months, Google will introduce a new way to search visually, with the ability to ask questions about what you see.
Here are a couple of examples of what Google AI Search MUM can do
With this new capability, you can tap on the Lens icon when you’re looking at a picture of a shirt, and ask Google to find you the same pattern — but on another article of clothing, like socks.
This helps when you’re looking for something that might be difficult to describe accurately with words alone. You could type “white floral Victorian socks,” but you might not find the exact pattern you’re looking for.
By combining images and text into a single query, we’re making it easier to search visually and express your questions in more natural ways.
Google Search Page – Helping you explore with a new redesigned Search page
We’re also announcing how we’re applying AI advances like MUM to redesign Google Search. These new features are the latest steps we’re taking to make searching more natural and intuitive.
First, we’re making it easier to explore and understand new topics with “Things to know.” Let’s say you want to decorate your apartment, and you’re interested in learning more about creating acrylic paintings.
For example, google can identify more than 350 topics related to acrylic painting, and help you find the right path to take.
Google will be launching this feature in the coming months. In the future, MUM will unlock deeper insights you might not have known to search for — like “how to make acrylic paintings with household items” — and connect you with content on the web that you wouldn’t have otherwise found.
To help you further explore ideas, we’re making it easy to zoom in and out of a topic with new features to refine and broaden searches.
In this case, you can learn more about specific techniques, like puddle pouring, or art classes you can take. You can also broaden your search to see other related topics, like other painting methods and famous painters. These features will launch in the coming months.
Third, we’re making it easier to find visual inspiration with a newly designed, browsable results page. If puddle pouring caught your eye, just search for “pour painting ideas” to see a visually rich page full of ideas from across the web, with articles, images, videos and more that you can easily scroll through.
This new visual results page is designed for searches that are looking for inspiration, like “Halloween decorating ideas” or “indoor vertical garden ideas,” and you can try it today.
Get more from Google videos
Google is already using advanced AI systems to identify key moments in videos, like the winning shot in a basketball game, or steps in a recipe. Today, google is taking this a step further, introducing a new experience that identifies related topics in a video, with links to easily dig deeper and learn more.
