Google launched AI Test Kitchen to a select number of users, allowing participants to test experimental AI systems before they go into production.
The tool gives users access to demos of Google’s latest AI technology. Users get to test the technology before it moves into production. In turn, Google learns how the technology will be used.
Like a real test kitchen, the tech giant will provide a changing set of apps within the tool. The first set allows users to test capabilities destined for the latest version of Google LaMDA. LaMDA is a language model that queries the Internet to answer questions with humanlike responses.
Google added several security layers to AI Test Kitchen to counter the risks of AI systems, including biased statements. These measures should automatically detect words and phrases that violate Google’s policies on the subject. The text is automatically filtered out upon discovery.
Free AI functionality isn’t new. Microsoft, Meta, OpenAI and GitHub released similar testing initiatives in the past. One of the most well-known releases is OpenAI’s GTP-3 AI engine, which writes humanlike articles without human intervention.
