The End of Traditional Generative Networks like Midjourney?
A Leap in Search Capabilities
Imagine typing in a description and getting a picture out of it! Google’s search bar is now equipped with an innovative capability, allowing it to craft images based on plain text descriptions using artificial intelligence. The tech giant took to its blog to announce this exciting development.
The Search Generative Experience
Dubbed the “Search Generative Experience“, the technology offers a refreshingly simple user experience. Just pop a textual request into the search bar – think “draw a capybara in a chef’s hat making breakfast“. Once the image is generated, users have the freedom to tweak elements like the background just by adjusting the textual description.
Integrating With “Google Images”
Besides the main search, the feature also extends to “Google Images“. So, if you’re struggling to find the right pre-existing image, just conjure one up with a description.
Copyright and Usage
Prioritizing user’s creative rights, each generated image will carry metadata and embedded watermarks. This ensures that users can seamlessly incorporate these AI-generated visuals in their projects without copyright concerns.
p: Currently, this feature is in its beta phase under Google Labs and is accessible to a select group. However, plans are in motion for a global rollout in the near future.
Google Search Embraces a More Human Touch
Adding to the list of updates, Google Search has become more relatable and “human-centric“. The new “Perspectives” tab enriches search results by pulling in relevant insights from real people across various forums and social media platforms, including the likes of TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit.
