With the meteoric rise of AI technology, there is an elephant in the room: Most people don’t know what it is or how it works. Google is here to help. 🙏

What happened? Google has introduced a series of 10 new educational courses that focus on generative AI, which are free to the public. These courses aim to enhance the average individual's comprehension of AI and machine learning, particularly in light of the potential job displacement caused by AI automation. The objective is to enable ordinary people to acquire the necessary skills for future employment opportunities.

What do the courses teach? The courses cover various topics, including the differences between AI and machine learning, providing an overview of Google's machine learning training platform called Vertex AI, and exploring the ethical considerations related to responsible AI development. These courses serve as an introductory resource to help users grasp the concept of generative AI, its integration within the broader AI landscape, and guide them to additional learning materials for transitioning into AI-focused careers.

Why is this important? A recent survey conducted by Goldman Sachs predicted that AI automation could lead to the loss of approximately 300 million jobs, with two-thirds of current positions facing some degree of workload reduction due to AI. Consequently, there is a pressing need to upskill human workers, and Google's training initiatives aim to address this requirement.

Despite the possible job displacement caused by AI, there is positive news from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. They have projected a significant, 36% surge in the growth rate of data science positions and related careers over the coming decade. This indicates a promising opportunity to consider enrolling in these courses and to begin learning more about the backend of AI and machine learning. 👩‍🏫


Tired of searching through a bunch of garbage for meaningful emails, such as your daily Fry-AI news? Google is implementing an AI-driven solution. 💌

What’s new? The mobile apps for both Google Workspace and personal Google accounts are being updated to add machine learning models which will make navigating emails much more efficient.

Why is Google putting AI into Gmail? Google has stated that this is a "highly requested feature" by users, and it will also enhance the efficiency of locating emails or files within the mobile apps.

What will it look like? This new AI element utilizes a blend of your recent emails and "various pertinent elements" to display the most probable emails you were seeking. The effectiveness of this feature will only become evident once you begin utilizing it, so Google is expecting some necessary tweaking.

When will this feature be available? The rollout of this new AI-driven feature began on June 2, but Google says it could take 15 days or more before it's available to all users.

Be sure to keep your eye out for this new feature. In the meantime, be sure to make sure our emails are moved to your primary inbox, lest you miss out on your fresh and crispy weekday news! 🍟


My least favorite part of going to the doctor is the 50-page medical exam they have me fill out in the waiting room. They ask me everything from my medical history to my favorite fry seasoning! Well … maybe not that much, but you get the point. 🍟

What happened? Google Cloud announced that Mayo Clinic is using a new generative AI search tool that lets companies create and utilize customized chatbots. This technology, provided in a partnership between Google Cloud and Mayo Clinic, allows workers to quickly interpret various types of data such as a patient’s medical history, imaging records, genomics, or labs. 👨‍🔬

How will this work? For example: If a physician requires access to information about a group of female patients aged 50 to 60, including their mammograms and medical charts, instead of separately searching for each element, they can enter this query into the search tool and receive all the needed information in seconds. Similarly, if a physician needs to identify clinical trials that a patient may be eligible for, they can perform a search for that. Vish Anantraman, Mayo Clinic's Chief Technology Officer, expressed, “It’s going to save a lot of time, it’s going to prevent physician burnout, and it’s going to reduce administrative overload.”

What about privacy? Google emphasized that their privacy approach ensures that customers maintain control over their data in a way that is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Aashima Gupta, Google Cloud's Global Director of Healthcare Strategy and Solutions, assured that they are approaching the use of generative AI in an enterprise healthcare setting with utmost thoughtfulness and responsibility. In an interview with CNBC, Gupta stated, "We want to be extremely careful and accountable in how we harness the power of generative AI, especially in the healthcare industry."

Transforming the healthcare industry is one of the key focuses of Google Cloud’s efforts, and due to this utilization of AI, your medical visits might get much smoother and more effective! 🙏


Apple never mentioned the word “AI” in their WWDC event. Don’t let that fool you though. Their Apple Vision Pro glasses have HUGE implications for Artificial Intelligence causing a significant spike in the Fry Meter.
