It’s safe to say Google’s spring update put OpenAI’s update to shame. 😅

What’s up? One day after OpenAI released GPT-4o, Google held a massive event in Hawaii, showcasing an entirely new universe of AI projects.

What are the new updates? This high-energy event featured the introduction and demonstration of monumental AI developments. Some of the major updates include the following:

  • AI Overviews: A search experience that allows Google to do the Googling for you, sifting the internet to find concise and accurate search results for layered questions, with links for further resources. This new feature will also soon allow users to search with videos! For example, you can take a video of your broken record player and ask, “Why won’t this work?”

  • Project Astra: An expert AI life assistant you can speak to in natural language. This model is teachable and recognizes multimodal content, including video and speech.

  • Veo: A new video model that creates 1080p videos from text and image inputs. These videos can be further edited using additional prompts.

  • Ask Photos: This allows a user to do a detailed search of their photos. For instance, you can ask, “When did my daughter learn how to swim?” or “Show me how my daughter’s swimming has progressed,” and you will get a detailed summary, including the relevant photos. This also includes Circle to Search, which allows users to circle parts of photos to search that portion of the image online.

  • Gemini 1.5 Pro’s context window went from a staggering 1 million to an even more staggering 2 million.

  • Imagen 3: A new image generation model with richer details and fewer distortions. This new model pays attention to small details in longer, naturally written prompts.

  • Updates to Google Workspace Labs: This includes a new AI Teammate feature as well as updates to Gmail.

  • Gemini 1.5 Flash: This new model is designed to be fast and cost-efficient, optimized for tasks where low latency and efficiency matter most.

  • Gems: Personal AI assistants which specialize in specific types of tasks. For example, you can create a “personal fitness trainer” Gem.

  • Music AI Sandbox: Created in collaboration with YouTube, this new feature allows users to create instrumental sections from scratch, transfer styles between tracks, and more.

  • SynthID: This open-source digital watermark technology will protect the authenticity of photos, audio, text, and videos.

  • Trillium TPUs: Google’s latest generation of TPUs which delivers a 4.7x improvement in compute performance per chip over the previous generation

  • PaliGemma: Google’s first vision-language open model.

“When we first began this journey to build AI more than 15 years ago, we knew one day, it would change everything. Now, that time is here.”

Q: Why did the sun read FryAI?

A: To get a little brighter! ☀️

What’s new? NASA has appointed David Salvagnini as its first-ever Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer, effective immediately.

What is this new role? The new role is an expansion of Salvagnini’s current role as Chief Data Officer. He will oversee AI safety, strategic planning, innovation, risk management, and partnerships. Salvagnini is an ideal candidate for the job, as he has over 20 years of experience working in technology leadership in the intelligence community.

Why is this important? This move reflects the effort of huge, government-funded organizations to integrate AI effectively into their operations. As NASA Administrator Bill Nelson stated, “It’s important that we remain at the forefront of advancement and responsible use. In this new role, David will lead NASA’s efforts to guide our agency’s responsible use of AI in the cosmos and on Earth to benefit all humanity.”  

“Artificial intelligence has been safely used at NASA for decades, and as this technology expands, it can accelerate the pace of discovery.”

-Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator


Sometimes I wear headphones when I’m not even listening to anything, just so people won’t try to talk to me. 😆

What’s up? Meta is reportedly working on designing AI-assisted earphones, potentially equipped with built-in cameras.

What are the new earphones? Dubbed internally as “Camerabuds,” the project aims to integrate advanced AI functionalities into wearable audio devices. If completed, the device will be able to translate foreign languages, identify objects, and more. This follows the release of Meta’s Ray-Ban Smart Glasses, which are equipped with similar AI vision capabilities.

What’s holding up the project? Currently, the hold up on development of these Camerabuds surround design logistics. An in-ear design makes it difficult for camera placement, while an on-ear design might make the device too bulky. If Meta finds a design they are comfortable with, we can expect to see the Camerabuds making a lot of noise in the market soon.
