During its earnings call last night, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai confirmed that Google will bring the power of language models to businesses, developers and Alphabet’s own internal operations. Sundar also revealed that Google will make these language models available in the coming weeks and months, starting with LaMDA, so that people can engage directly with them.

Now, Google has announced an online event scheduled for next week. The event will be about “Search, Maps and beyond,” and will be livestreamed on YouTube on February 8th.

We’re reimagining how people search for, explore and interact with information, making it more natural and intuitive than ever before to find what you need. Join us to learn how we’re opening up greater access to information for people everywhere, through Search, Maps and beyond.

Google is expected to finally reveal its OpenAI ChatGPT competitor at this event. Google Search users will be able to use it as a companion to search.
