GoogleAI is a 2017-founded, AI-dedicated division of Google. While working on AI-driven products, Google aims to help people, making technology “socially beneficial, fair, accountable, and works for everyone.”
One of the core programs in development by Google's AI department is AI for Social Good (AI4SG). Of this program’s significant achievements, we can’t but name the COVID-19 open data repository, accurate flood forecasting technology, as well as Google’s Project Euphoria — a speech recognition technology helping people with non-standard speech be understood. Analyses of various speech recordings help better train the model and thus provide for all kinds of speech patterns.
And a separate development of GoogleAI is LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), an AI that analyzes human speech and recognizes commands in it. This technology is similar to the ones the voice assistants Siri and Alexa operate on. The conversational neural language model is currently available in beta and anyone can test it. Google’s LaMDA is surrounded by controversy on the Internet considering its sentience.
Sentience stands for someone’s ability to feel. The subject of sentience in the context of computers, especially artificial intelligence, is not new and has been around since computers first appeared in the 1950s.

Speech recognition is the technology that enables computers to recognize and transcribe human speech so that people can interact with computers using spoken language.
