Google recently announced the release of PaLM 2, a new AI language model at its I/O conference for developers. Google's goal with PaLM 2 is to compete with OpenAI's GPT-4, while further strengthening their chatbot, Bard. But what does PaLM really mean?
PaLM stands for “linguistic model of communication channels,” and according to Google, excels at advanced reasoning tasks, such as coding and math, classification and question answering, as well as translation and multilingual fluency. Trained on more than 540 billion parameters, PaLM is considered one of the best linguistic models on the market, surpassing even the billion parameters used by OpenAI's GPT-4.
In this article, we will discuss how PaLM 2 is focused on mathematical and scientific reasoning, as well as programming languages and Google products that can be tested by users.
Google focuses on mathematical reasoning
The strength of PaLM 2 is its impressive level of scientific and mathematical reasoning. OpenAI's GPT-3 has been criticized for its lack of accuracy in these areas, although GPT-4 represents a significant improvement. However, Google is striving to go further using three major research advances: optimal computational scaling, an improved combination of datasets, and improvements in model architecture.
Thus, with PaLM 2, Google ensures that it is on the cutting edge by focusing on 20 different programming languages, making this tool a must-have for programmers.
Where to try PaLM 2?
Currently, Google has not released this technology widely, but it is used in more than 25 of their products, including Android, YouTube, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Sheets, among others. To test PaLM 2, users can use Google Bard, a chatbot based on this new language model. Although it is not yet available in all countries, it is considered one of the best ways to discover PaLM 2.
All in all, PaLM 2 is a true technological achievement by Google that reinforces their dominance in AI research and development. PaLM 2's advances in scientific and mathematical reasoning make it a must-have tool for all programmers and developers looking for the best artificial intelligence for their projects.
