Generative AI in search of more people around the world

The last twenty-five years have been devoted to the art and science of building search engines. Our latest AI advancements have allowed us to build whole new search experiences. You can perform multimodal and cross-modal searches using both text and images with Lens and multisearch, respectively. In just two years, 12 billion visual searches have been done on Lens, and a growing percentage of those searches are multimodal. We’re once more redefining what a search engine can accomplish thanks to recent advances in generative AI. We can now ask whole new questions with this potent new technology that you never would have imagined Search could address, and we can completely change the way information is arranged to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for.

What is generative AI?

Generative AI falls under the category of machine learning models that, unlike human beings, lacks independent thinking and emotional response although highly skilled in identifying patterns. Initially used for comprehension and information curation purposes, current generative AI technology can facilitate the production of novel multimedia content including images, tunes, and programming codes.


How Large Language Models Power Generative AI

Both Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) are part of the same technological domain. The former can undergo training with any type of data, whereas LLMs employ words as their primary source for such processes.

Furthermore, activities augmented by LLMs or models like Bard and Search Generative Experiences have the ability to predict subsequent terms based on users’ prompts in conjunction with previously generated text. They possess a degree of flexibility that allows them to utilize patterns derived from past sessions when selecting likely following expressions, enabling creative responses. In an event where you prompt these experiences to complete “Harry [blank],” they may anticipate either “Styles” or “Potter,” for example.


Improving Search with generative AI

By incorporating advanced generative AI capabilities, our search engine now streamlines the inquiry process. Thus, you can comprehend a concept quicker and discover new outlooks while completing tasks more efficiently. Consider an example such as “Which is better for families with toddlers and pets: Bryce Canyon or Arches.” Usually, this query would require breaking it down into smaller ones followed by shifting through extensive information to piece together your answer on your own accord; however, thanks to our cutting-edge technology in Search engines powered by generous AI algorithms that do much of the heavy lifting- summarizing key factors that should be considered along with additional links if want further insights.


After this image, you’ll be presented with recommended actions that include the option to inquire further by asking questions such as “What’s a suitable duration for visiting Bryce Canyon National Park with children?” Clicking on these options will lead you into a new interactive mode where you can continue your investigation of the subject matter through conversations with Google.

The background information from prior inquiries stays consistent throughout each question session allowing for an easier exploration experience. Besides searchable web content, there are additional starting points and alternative viewpoints offered that may prove valuable during your research journey.

How to use generative AI

Important: You can get creative with the aid of Google’s generative AI experiences. They are not intended to be the creator or to do all of the job for you.

Below are the 3 ways that you can use generative AI:

AI can & will make mistakes

As generative AI is an experimental and ongoing process, there is a possibility of making mistakes:
