Google Integrates Generative AI Features To Gmail And Docs In Google Workspace
Imagine traveling to some unknown destination without the help of Google Maps. Or not having access to your emails on Gmail when the workday begins. Yes, it seems improbable just to consider this concept! There is barely any aspect of our everyday lives that the technology giant has not yet entered. For over 25 years, Google has been developing tools and services that aim to make our lives easier. From Search and Maps to Gmail and Docs in Google Workspace, their products have been extremely instrumental in adding value to people’s lives. Furthermore, including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology in their products has allowed them to dominate the market. Google has already added a number of AI improvements to its Workspace products over the past few years, some of which include Smart Compose and Smart Reply in Gmail, text summarization in Docs, improved video quality in Meet, and security against malware and phishing attempts. And now, Google has something planned to completely change how its users use Workspace!
Google has now revealed that it will incorporate generative AI into its Workspace cloud applications, which include Gmail, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Meet, and Chat. This will enable users to take advantage of generative AI’s power to create, connect, and collaborate in ways that have never been possible. Google’s Workspace has always remained true to its mission of creating, building, and growing for everyone, thus making it the world’s most widely used and secure cloud-based communication and collaboration suite. The current advancements in generative AI will allow the company to carry out this mission in new ways. These new features will include drafting documents and email content, generating response mails, sorting emails by priority, automatically correcting document content, adding images, audio files, and videos to Slides presentations, analyzing raw data in Sheets, and creating formulas or contextualized categories. Some other features will also include automatically adding the background or capture records for Meet or using Chat as the control endpoint to integrate the automation process. The organization wishes to thoroughly evaluate these generative AI experiences with testers before making them available to the general public. These innovative and captivating features will be introduced gradually over the year.
As a starting step, the first set of AI-powered writing features will be deployed in Docs and Gmail. From beginners to amateurs in writing, the new generative AI embedded in Docs and Gmail has something in store for everyone. The first set of features primarily aims to assist the user by producing the first version on any topic the user chooses to write about. The users can then alter the template’s tone and format according to their writing style and even by the suggestions provided by their collaborative AI partner. Additionally, Google has added new generative AI capabilities to help users rewrite their original draft in order to achieve the tone and style they want. For instance, if they wish to make their email more formal before applying for a new job or turn their meeting notes into a more polished summary before sharing it with their team. The United States English-speaking consumers will be the first to test these new Docs and Gmail experiences. After being fine-tuned and making the appropriate changes based on feedback, these functionalities will then be gradually extended to consumers, small businesses, medium and large corporations, and educational users in more nations and languages. The company has yet to give any statement on when the Meet, Slides, Sheets, and Chat features will be launched.
Google has always done things at a previously unachievable scale, and they wish to continue doing so the right way with the new set of generative AI experiences they plan to launch. The organization has learned from its earlier research into AI and productivity that creating AI features involves considerable care, careful experimentation, and numerous modifications based on user response. Aware of all this, the firm is committed to developing products that adhere to its AI principles and lets consumers choose whether or not they want AI to make suggestions, tweaks, or edits to their work. All of the products are being developed in a way that protects consumers from misuse, preserves their privacy, and acknowledges their data governance restrictions.
Using AI, Google hopes to realize its larger vision of Workspace growing into a collaborative partner who is always there to support you in achieving your goals. The billion-dollar corporation is adamant that its efforts will transform creation across Workspace like they revolutionized co-authoring and collaboration in Docs 17 years ago. Google aspires for its attempt to be seen by the world as a first step in realizing the full potential of generative AI throughout Workspace. The company welcomes all organizations that aren’t already using Workspace to test out its AI tools with a free work account called Google Workspace Starter.

Welcome to the Luddite Revolution
There’s a lot of buzz about Artificial Intelligence(A.I.) these days. Some of us want to re-invent the Luddite Cause as well. What’s a Luddite and why re-invent it?
At the turn of the century in England possibly the greatest moment in human endeavors happened during the Industrial Revolution, a time when technology found its place as the new unannounced “God”, replacing rural agriculture with production schedules. The population began to move to the big city for employment in the many manufacturing facilities available at the time. What was normal and customary became outdated and shoved aside. The business people of the time knew nothing about human rights, safety within the workplace, or proper pay for the work done. It seemed to many that the new god of invention and technology was not a savior of humanity, but its oppressor instead. A group of like-minded English and Frenchmen gathered and attacked the premises of this technological miracle. Parts of humanity declared war upon technology, uncontrolled raw capitalism, and society’s evils. These people were known as Luddites.
Today our society faces a new challenge that threatens us in many ways. A.I. generated reality has come to life, replacing the norms of hard work, study, and personal application with A.I. generated Art, Codes to generate essays for students. CHAT GPT offers customers the ability to ask it questions and the computer system will write essays, work reports, studies, poems, and the such. A.I. is being applied to our healthcare systems, transportation, and workplace systems too. Has A.I. become so good at what it does that it can replace humanity?
Imagine going to your local church hoping for a well delivered sermon passionately delivered by loudspeaker and A.I. written and delivered too. You go to your place of business where through a computer, phone calls, and texts you are advised, directed, and managed by A.I. Not a person but a machine program. Fear is spreading among your fellow citizens that through A.I. applications the human experience is missing. Evidence of human emotions, reflections, expressions of hard work, and challenging human experience can disappear in time, replaced by cold efficiency and business terminology.
Has a Luddite been born today? Do you trust those who program and unleash Artificial Intelligence upon us all?
A.I. exists to make a profit for someone else. So if an enterprise can be more profitable, will you or your fellow employees face layoffs and possible replacement? How will this improve the planet’s present situation? High populations with jobs being replaced by A. Intelligence. What will unemployed surplus individuals do with their free time now? When the fishermen of Newfoundland could no longer fish their coasts due to overfishing, over a hundred thousand of them were retrained as computer programmers, with no place to practice their new profession.
When the profit margin is more important than human beings’ self-respect and rights, a situation opens for A.I. insertion. Is A.I. a friend or foe?

Final Fantasy 16 will take you about 35 hours to beat, 70-80 hours to complete
If you’re wondering how long you’ll need to set aside for Final Fantasy 16, a new interview confirmed it will take about 35 hours.
In a new interview with Famitsu, Final Fantasy 16’s director Hiroshi Takai and producer Naoki Yoshida shared their estimated playtime for the next entry in the classic series, setting it at around 35 hours (translations from aitaikimochi, thanks IGN). And for the completionists out there, it sounds like you’ll have around 70-80 hours of gameplay to get through, according to Yoshida himself.
“If you want to master and level up all abilities, gather all accessories, do all the side quests, and fight all the monster hunts, you’re probably looking at about 70~80 hours of gameplay,” said Yoshida. The producer noted that there’s also an incredibly difficult New Game+ mode called the “Final Fantasy Mode,” which lets you carry over all of your stats, adding even more hours to the final count.
Interestingly, Yoshida also shared that when development first started, he “had the idea in mind that gamers these days are really busy with other things, so I wanted them to be able to at least aim to complete the story. I thought making the game something you can complete in about 20 hours would make sense, but more and more just got packed in.”
Plus on top of that, there will be a score board included, meaning there’s another way for you to spend your time racking up points to try and top the leaderboard.
We already knew that Final Fantasy 16 would have around 11 hours of cinematics alone, which means that basically a third of the game will be spent just watching it. Unlike Final Fantasy 15, it won’t be an open world experience, but it won’t be a fully linear game either, making it sound similar to its God of War inspirations.
