Forrester Wave 2024: Language AI Foundation Models

Google Cloud’s interactions with Forrester Wave are changing as a result of generative AI

Google Deep Mind, Google Research, and Google Cloud collaborated on Gemini, a multi-modal family of models

Vertex AI Extensions and connectors let developers call functions in codebases, access external data, and integrate Gemini Pro to external APIs for transactions and other operations

Vertex AI offers several tools, such as Customer Managed Encryption Keys and VPC Service Controls, to give clients complete control over their data

Customers can save a lot of money by using Vertex AI context caching and its cached data

The RAG process is made simpler by LlamaIndex on Vertex AI, starting with data acquisition and transformation and continuing through embedding, indexing, retrieval, and generation

Vertex AI Model Garden will soon have Gemma 2 models available
