At Google Cloud Next 2023 today, Google unveiled new Duet AI technology into some of its most popular products such as BigQuery, DMS and Chronicle Security.

The world’s third largest cloud computing platform is getting an AI shot in the arm with the injection of new Duet AI features into a slew of popular Google Cloud products.

At Google Cloud Next 2023 today, the company unveiled new capabilities of Duet AI for Google Cloud including on BigQuery, Looker, Cloud Spanner, Google’s Database Migration Service, as well as expert assistance across a customers’ entire software development lifecycle. On the cybersecurity front, Duet AI is also being integrated with Google’s security offerings such as Chronicle Security Operations and Mandiant Threat Intelligence.

“Duet AI delivers contextual recommendations from PaLM 2 LLM models and expert guidance, trained and tuned with Google Cloud-specific content, such as documentation, sample code, and Google Cloud best practices,” said Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian in a blog post today.

Duet AI At Google Cloud Next

In May, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company first unveiled Duet AI, a new AI-powered collaborator to help cloud users of all skill levels solve everyday work challenges. Duet AI serves as an expert pair programmer and assists users with contextual code completion, offering suggestions tuned to a customer’s code base, generating entire functions in real time, and assisting with code reviews and inspections.

“Duet AI was designed using Google’s comprehensive approach to help protect customers’ security and privacy, as well as our AI principles,” said Kurian. “With Duet AI, your data is your data. Your code, your inputs to Duet AI, and your recommendations generated by Duet AI will not be used to train any shared models nor used to develop any products.”

Google unveiled its new Duet AI capabilities for Google Cloud today in front of thousands of attendees at the company’s Google Cloud Next 2023 conference in San Francisco.

“Duet AI can now provide AI assistance across a wide range of Google Cloud products and services to serve more cloud users — spanning developers, operators, data practitioners, and cybersecurity professionals,” said Brad Calder, vice president and general manager of the Google Cloud Platform and Technical Infrastructure. “Being a critical part of Google’s overall AI effort, Duet AI is revolutionizing the way our users work with Google Cloud, which will help our customers boost their productivity, gain competitive advantages, and ultimately improve the bottom line.”

Duet AI in Google Cloud is currently in preview with general availability later this year.
