Google is sprinting to turn generative AI into a commercial advantage after years of leading the AI marathon, reports Bloomberg. A self-declared “AI-first” company since 2016, Google R&D dominated published research papers between 2020 to 2022, according to an analysis by Zeta Alpha the story cites.
