Paytm Founder Dunks On Google's New Generative AI Feature: 'Shouldn't Be Called Progress'

Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma isn’t too impressed with Google’s new generative AI feature addition to its Workspace suite.

What Happened? Sharma in a tweet on Wednesday stated that turning a “one-line update into a paragraph of generic, non-useful text shouldn’t be called progress.”

The technology entrepreneur was replying to a tweet by banker Vikas Goel talking about Google’s new feature.

Google, on Tuesday, announced a sweeping update to Workspace that will bring its generative AI models to virtually every part of its productivity suite.

What this means is that if you’re on any of Google’s Workspace suite apps — including Gmail, Google Docs, etc., — you can type in a text, and a draft will be created quickly. The feature allows users to edit the text predicted using AI by making changes, shortening it, or adjusting the tone to be more professional.

With ‘AI’ continuing to be the theme of Google’s new additions, the tech giant similarly introduced ‘generative AI’ capabilities to its Cloud AI portfolio to help developers and organizations access enterprise-level safety, security, and privacy.

To aid developers in the process the search giant has debuted ‘PaLM API’ as a safe and easy way for developers to build on top of its best language models. The API includes the MakerSuite tool which allows developers to prototype their ideas quickly.

Over time, MakerSuite will offer synthetic data generation, custom-model tuning, and prompt engineering features supported by robust safety tools, says Google.
