A Suite of AI-Powered Tools for Enterprises

Google showcased a remarkable suite of AI-driven tools, tailored primarily for enterprise applications. Among these, “Duet AI in Workspace” takes the spotlight, aiding users in composing emails, generating documents, and crafting custom visuals within Google apps. This addition responds to strong customer demand and has already been put to the test over a million users.

Google also introduced the latest iteration of its text model, PaLM, designed to streamline the processing of extensive textual documents, including legal briefs and books.

An intriguing innovation, “SynthID,” was also revealed. This technology discreetly watermarks AI-generated images, imperceptible to the human eye yet resilient against image alterations or tampering.
