Google is consolidating its generative AI teams under the leadership of DeepMind to accelerate the development of more advanced models, building on previous consolidation efforts such as the merger of DeepMind and Brain last year. All teams working on AI models are now under one roof, including the Responsible AI team, which will play a larger role in developing new models, Alphabet CEO Pichai wrote on Thursday. Google also wants to standardize the requirements for rolling out AI capabilities, and invest more in testing to ensure the models' responses are accurate and appropriate. The consolidation effort also extends to AI hardware development, with the Platforms and Ecosystems and Devices and Services teams being combined into a new group called Platforms and Devices.
