As AI technologies continue to advance, they have the potential to unlock new experiences that support more natural human-computer interactions. While there’s still lots of work to be done before this type of human-computer interaction is possible, recent research breakthroughs in generative models—inspired by the natural conversations of people—are accelerating the progress.
In this master class, teachers will get a behind-the-scenes look at Google's new AI Test Kitchen app using the company’s proprietary Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA). Similar to a real test kitchen, AI Test Kitchen serves a rotating set of experimental demos that are designed to give you a taste of what’s becoming possible with AI in a responsible way. We’ll explore how the model works, where this new technology might lead, and discuss the ethical questions it raises.
Josh Woodward, a longtime Google product leader, began his career at Google in 2009 as an intern. Over the years, he’s helped ship the first several generations of Chromebooks, co-founded Google's Next Billion Users efforts for first-time internet users around the world, and worked on Google Pay, Google Wallet, and other Fintech initiatives. He was the first Product Manager behind the AI Test Kitchen initiative, striving to provide a new way for people to learn about, experience, and give feedback on emerging AI technologies at Google. Josh presented the first AI Test Kitchen demo at Google I/O 2022. Since then he’s hosted roundtables on this subject to a wide range of audience, including global policy makers and the Computer Science Teachers Association.
