Why is GOOGL rallying?
Google’s latest stock upturn comes after the tech behemoth unveiled a series of new AI products and partnerships this week, aimed at equipping its enterprise clients with the nascent technology.
More specifically, Google’s cloud subsidiary revealed a new version of its custom-built AI chips, an enterprise-level tool to watermark and identify image content generated with AI, and fresh security solutions for its office suite.
In a bid to reinforce its enterprise cloud service, Google added 20 AI models to its already large collection, bringing the total number to 100.
Regarding its custom-built chips, Google decided to allow access to a product that is optimized for generative AI and large language models (LLMs). The move comes ahead of the company’s announcement of its comprehensive 5th-gen tensor processing unit (TPU).
The new chip, dubbed ‘TPU v5e,’ is meant to train large models but also deliver content from these models, although it cannot match the power of the to-be-launched fifth AI generation chip.
