In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the Intelligent Security Summit and the on-demand sessions available, the latest news on Google’s Bard and LaMDA model, and the implications of Microsoft’s recent announcement about its Bing search engine, Edge web browser, and chat powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT and generative AI.

It’s an exciting time for search, and the competition between Google and Microsoft is heating up. Google CEO Sundhar Puchai recently released a blog post with new information about its Bard conversational AI search tool, powered by the LaMDA model. However, the company declined to offer much more at a live YouTube stream from its Paris office. Meanwhile, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella declared that the “race starts today” in search at an event at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington. With both companies ramping up their search capabilities, let’s take a look at what they have to offer.

Intelligent Security Summit On-Demand

The Intelligent Security Summit is offering on-demand sessions to learn more about the critical role of AI and ML in cybersecurity, as well as industry-specific case studies. If you’re looking to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the field, this is a great opportunity to get the information you need.

Google’s Bard and LaMDA Model

Google’s Bard conversational AI search tool is powered by the LaMDA model, and it will initially be released to trusted testers this week. Prabhakar Raghavan, an SVP at Google who is responsible for Search, said that “search is still our biggest moonshot,” adding that the “moon keeps moving.” Google also touted improvements around Translate, Maps and Lens, particularly “multisearch” — searching with images and text together, for a combination of words and images that communicate meaning. Multisearch will go live globally on mobile in over 70 languages that Lens is in around the world.

Microsoft’s Bing Search Engine and Edge Web Browser

Microsoft recently announced a reimagined Bing search engine, Edge web browser, and chat powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT and generative AI. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman joined on stage at the Microsoft event, saying that he wants to get AI into the hands of more people, which is why OpenAI partnered with Microsoft. This is a major development, and Microsoft clearly has big plans for its search capabilities.

The Future of Search

It’s clear that Google and Microsoft are in a race to offer the best search experience. With both companies ramping up their search capabilities, the future of search is sure to be an exciting one.
