Everyone thinks Microsoft + OpenAI will beat Google in the AI Battle, will that happen?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most revolutionary technologies of our time. It has the potential to transform every aspect of our lives, from health care to entertainment. But who will lead the AI race? Will it be Google, the search giant that has been investing heavily in AI research and development for years? Or will it be Microsoft, the software behemoth that has partnered with OpenAI, the ambitious research organization that aims to create artificial general intelligence (AGI), a level of AI that can perform any task a human can?

In this blog post, I will explore the strengths and weaknesses of both Google and Microsoft + OpenAI in their quest for AI supremacy. I will also discuss some of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for both parties.

Google: The Search King

Google is widely regarded as one of the leaders in AI. It has a large and talented team of researchers and engineers working on various aspects of AI, such as natural language processing (NLP), computer vision, speech recognition, machine learning, and deep learning. Google also has access to massive amounts of data from its popular products and services, such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Photos, and Google Assistant. Data is essential for training and improving AI models.

Some of Google’s notable achievements in AI include:

  • Developing TensorFlow, an open-source framework for building and deploying machine learning models.
  • Creating BERT, a state-of-the-art NLP model that can understand natural language queries better than previous models.
  • Launching Duplex, a system that can make phone calls on behalf of users to book appointments or make reservations.
  • Building AlphaGo, an AI program that defeated the world champion of Go, a complex board game that requires intuition and creativity.

Google’s main advantage in the AI race is its dominance in search. Search is not only a lucrative business for Google but also a powerful source of information and knowledge. By analyzing billions of queries every day, Google can learn about user preferences, behavior patterns, trends, and needs. This allows Google to improve its products and services with personalized recommendations, relevant ads, and useful features.

However, Google also faces some challenges in its pursuit of AI excellence. One challenge is competition from other tech giants like Amazon, Facebook, and Apple, who are also investing heavily in AI and have their own data sources and platforms to leverage. Another challenge is regulation and ethics issues that may arise from using and developing AI in sensitive domains like health care, education, or finance. Google may have to deal with privacy concerns, bias allegations, or legal disputes that could hamper its innovation or reputation.

Microsoft + OpenAI: The Dream Team

Microsoft is another major player in the AI field. It has a long history of developing software solutions for various industries and markets. It also has a strong presence in cloud computing with Azure, its platform for hosting and managing applications and services. Microsoft has been investing in AI research and development for decades but has recently ramped up its efforts by partnering with OpenAI, an independent research organization that was founded by some prominent figures in tech like Elon Musk,
Peter Thiel, and Reid Hoffman.

OpenAI’s mission is to ensure that AGI is aligned with human values and can benefit humanity as a whole.

OpenAI has made some impressive breakthroughs in AI such as:

  • Creating GPT-3, a massive NLP model that can generate coherent text on almost any topic given a few words or sentences as input.
  • Developing DALL-E, an image generation model that can create realistic images from text descriptions or sketches.
  • Building Codex, a code generation model that can write functional code from natural language commands or examples.

Microsoft’s main advantage in the AI race is its partnership with OpenAI. By collaborating with OpenAI,
Microsoft gains access to some of the most cutting-edge research and talent in AI.

Microsoft also provides OpenAI with financial support, technical resources, and distribution channels to scale up its projects and reach more users. Together, Microsoft + OpenAI form a formidable team that can challenge Google’s leadership position.

However, Microsoft + OpenAI also face some obstacles in their quest for AI supremacy.
One obstacle is complexity. Creating AGI is not an easy task; it requires solving many hard problems like reasoning, planning, learning from feedback, and generalizing across domains. Another obstacle is uncertainty

What happens is that it will look at search results across the web and give you a summarized answer, saving you time to look up various web links. You can also ask follow-up questions in the chat experience. Microsoft says Bing can help you write a poem, or stories or even share ideas for your project.

New Microsoft AI Edge browser

The Edge browser has also been updated with a new look and AI capabilities It comes with two new features; chat and compose located in the Edge sidebar. Microsoft says Edge can understand the webpage you are on and adapt accordingly. The feature allows you to ask for a summary of a lengthy report and use the chat function to ask for a comparison. It also lets you compose content such as LinkedIn posts and tweak it

It’s a new day for search” – Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, says speaking at the launch event. He notes “it is an exciting time in tech. … The advances, what’s possible excites us. … Can we use technology to overcome the challenges that people, organizations, and countries face? That really is the pursuit here.”

Microsoft says the new Bing ChatGPT-like experience is available starting today on Bing.com for everyone to try as a limited preview on a desktop. However, the chat mode is only available when you have access to the new Bing. Microsoft plans to scale the preview to millions in the coming weeks and bring it to mobile and other browsers as well. You can join a waitlist to know when it is available to you.
