genioux Facts:

Google's AI-powered businesses are booming, thanks to strong demand from advertisers and cloud customers.

Google executives on Tuesday expressed optimism about the company's future, citing its extensive use of artificial intelligence (AI) across its products and services. While they did not provide a specific timeline, they said that Search Generative Experience (SGE), a new search feature that can synthesize search results from complex queries, would be widely available to the public soon.

This lighthouse extracts 10 key insights from Jennifer Elias's golden knowledge article "Google points to many ways it can win in A.I. even as online ad market shows cracks":

  1. Overall, AI is a boon, Google's CEO Sundar Pichai said.
  2. Alphabet’s second-quarter results showed the company remains a strong option for advertisers and users even as artificial intelligence chatbots emerge.
  3. Google is also proving to investors that it has multiple ways to grow, benefiting from a boom in cloud spending by AI companies.
  4. Google’s revenue rose 7% to $74.6 billion from $69.7 billion in the year-earlier period, topping analysts’ estimates. Profit was also better than expected, driving the stock price up about 6% in extended trading.
  5. Search revenue, which makes up the majority of Google’s ad business, also saw steady growth. 
  6. Google’s search business still expanded, and CEO Sundar Pichai pointed to the company’s homegrown chatbot called Bard, which has been a major focus of investment in recent months.
  7. Where Google can benefit no matter what happens in the ad market is on the cloud infrastructure side, where it competes with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. 
  8. AI companies are flocking to Google’s cloud technology so they can run the compute-heavy projects that are only available in a few places.
  9. Google’s cloud business, which turned profitable in the first quarter, saw revenue increase 28% in the second quarter to $8 billion, topping analysts’ estimates. Pichai said that more than 70% of so-called unicorns (generally defined as billion-dollar tech startups) in generative AI are Google Cloud customers. They include Cohere, Japser and Typeface.
  10. “There is definitely a lot of interest from customers on AI and they definitely are engaging on many more conversations with us,” Pichai said.
