Microsoft has also been actively working on AI research, with its Microsoft Research division making breakthroughs in areas like machine learning and natural language processing. The acquisition of LinkedIn has also given Microsoft access to a wealth of data that can be leveraged for AI applications.


One of the frontrunners in the AI race is Google. With its deep pockets and vast resources, Google quickly introduced Gemini (formerly Bard). Unlike other tech companies, the search engine giant has a bigger list of AI products such as Duet AI, PaLM, Google AI studio, Vertex AI, etc.

Google's parent company, Alphabet, has also been making significant investments in AI startups and research projects, solidifying its position as a leader in the field.


Where's there's tech, we cannot forget the social media giant Meta who is also trailing the AI race.

While Meta has made investments in AI, such as its facial recognition technology, it has faced setbacks in areas such as data privacy and algorithmic bias.

Despite this, Zuckerberg's company finally launched their AI bot called Meta AI Assistant. It is currently available on platforms such as WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook. Besides, Meta's AI efforts have also been overshadowed by the cutting-edge competition going on between OpenAI, Google and Microsoft.

So far, we have seen a rapid and massive list of AI products being launched left and tight that are setting the standard for what AI can achieve. However, this AI race is making it difficult for firms to keep pace. Nevertheless, as AI continues to evolve and reshape industries, companies that fail to prioritise AI innovation may find themselves left behind in the competitive landscape.
