Microsoft CEO Nadella: Google Should Have Led in AI, But Reality Tells a Different Story

March 14, 2024 – In a recent statement, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed his belief that Google, given its resource advantages, should have been the frontrunner in the artificial intelligence race.

According to Nadella, Google possesses exceptional capabilities, including top-tier talent, powerful computing resources, and vertical integration spanning from data processing to chip development, model building, and product promotion.

“Google ought to be leading the way in AI,” Nadella said.

However, the reality is that Microsoft has seized the initiative in AI through its multi-billion dollar partnership with OpenAI and has quickly reaped the benefits of ChatGPT’s success.

Meanwhile, Google has failed to demonstrate its potential in the AI arena. Its Gemini product faced criticism for inaccuracies in generating historical figures, leading to calls for the resignation of CEO Sundar Pichai.

A senior Google executive attributed the “public relations disaster” to the company’s eagerness to catch up with its competitors in AI products. Some senior engineers even admitted that Google “wasn’t ready to win” in this artificial intelligence competition.
