The CEO of Alphabet and Google, Sundar Pichai, highlighted that artificial intelligence (AI) is causing a significant technical revolution that may outpace the effects of the web and mobile revolutions.

He emphasized the role AI plays in advancing economic development and innovation while advancing human knowledge, creativity, and productivity.

Gemini is an example of Google’s continued dedication to being an AI-first business. It was developed by Google DeepMind, which is headed by CEO and co-founder Demis Hassabis.

With regard to its multimodal understanding, which enables it to process and blend many forms of information, such as text, code, voice, picture, and video, the model exhibits an astounding range of skills.

There are three variations of the original model, Gemini 1.0.:

  • Ultra- the most capable and largest model for for highly complex tasks 
  • Pro- the best model for scaling across a wide range of tasks

Open AI Set to Launch GPT Store in 2024

OpenAI announced in an email to GPT developers that the much awaited GPT Store—a step into the world of generative AI technologies—will open early in 2024.

The GPT Builder tools have undergone various upgrades, which the business disclosed alongside this release.

It is anticipated that this change would simplify the user interface and increase accessibility to AI products, facilitating their integration into different marketing strategies.

OpenAI updated the Code Interpreter’s file handling function to address the important component of data processing.

Concerns about privacy and usability have led to the default disabling of the ability to download submitted files, along with further instructions for users.

Professionals in marketing and SEO who handle sensitive data in customized GPTs will find this update to be crucial.

To further improve the programming experience, one-click testing and debugging alerts in the GPT Builder preview mode are being included.

The potential for more creative applications of GPTs in business processes are increased by Actions’ capacity to operate with different domains.

Additionally, OpenAI announced that now that the recent “unexpected things” had subsided, “great updates” would be released for ChatGPT shortly.

While the GPT Store rollout’s delay may annoy some developers, it should allow for further platform improvement and feedback gathering to guarantee the best possible GPT performance.

Firefox’s URL Tracking Removal: The Latest Privacy Shift

Firefox recently made the announcement that users will now have the option to include tracking information from copied URLs or not.

Removing tracking information from URLs seems to be gathering steam. Should marketers be concerned about where this is all headed? Could the industry as a whole adopt the practice of prohibiting URL tracking parameters for privacy’s sake?

Firefox users may now choose to copy a URL with or without any URL tracking parameters attached when they pick a link to copy and click to bring up the contextual menu for that link.

New capabilities are being added to all browsers, including Google Chrome and its variations, to make it more difficult for websites to follow people online by using referrer information encoded in a URL when a person clicks to visit one page and then exits to visit another.

Although the trend toward more privacy has been around for some time, it gained additional traction in 2020 when Chrome modified the way referrer information was delivered when users clicked on links to visit other websites. Firefox and Safari had similar referrer behavior after that.

It can surprise those who are not very involved in browser privacy issues that certain tracking settings are already impacted by privacy-preserving measures.

Lead Solutions Engineer at Elevar Jonathan Cairo shared on his LinkedIn profile that a small amount of tracking-related data has already been removed from URLs.

However, he also clarified that there are restrictions on the amount of data that may be removed from URLs because doing so would have unfavorable impacts and break crucial web browsing features.

It appears that privacy will remain popular given the numerous laws that have been passed worldwide regulating privacy and Internet tracking.

But for now, the advice probably sounds something like this: keep an eye on how far browsers are going, but don’t anticipate things to go out of control.

Google reflects on the March incident in which Product snippets and Merchant listings first appeared on Google Search Console. You can examine the newly created Merchant listings and Product snippets search appearances in Search Console in two locations:

  • Reports with merchant lists and product snippets superimposed over the report charts
  • Performance report via a filter or in the search appearance tab
