Google’s announcement of its new artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Google Multitask Unified Model (MUM), may have come a few weeks after the release of Neural Matching, which was described as an “artificial intelligence system for learning”.
What is Google MUM?
Google Multitask Unified Model (MUM) is a group of technologies working together to solve difficult questions that don’t have direct answers. While research papers aren’t explicitly using the technology’s brand name, there are reports that discuss similar problems that MUM solves.
MUM is essentially a new technology developed by Google for answering complex questions that don’t have direct answers. Google said that MUM is a multimodal AI model 1,000 times more powerful than BERT.
Google MUM impacts the search experience, making it multimodal. To learn more about multimodal search, check out our web story.
