What is Google Duet AI

You most likely use Google Duet AI every single day without knowing it. Google Duet AI is Google’s generative language and imagery integrated directly in their Google Workspace applications such as Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.

Currently the use cases are limited. The most common examples are:

  • Automatically creating meeting notes for upcoming Google Meets
  • Automatically drafting an email through the ‘Help me write’ button in Gmail

Two very handy features that came out during the last year which are not yet telling us the full story related to the capabilities of Google Duet AI.

Google Duet AI will be tremendously more powerful.

Google Duet AI capabilities

In the upcoming months, users of Google Workspace will start getting access to more and more capabilities driven by AI. These features will include:

  • Help you write
  • Generate original images
  • Automate insights
  • Foster meaningful connections
  • Optimize project workflows

Let’s look at some practical examples.

Example: Generating images from text in Google Slides

Imagine a world in which you can write a simple prompt in Google Slides to make a visual matching your slide. Via text-to-image generative AI you will have your personal designer working for you 24/7 when you create presentations.

Example: Creating project plans from a single prompt

Users will be able to create project plans directly in Google Sheets, reducing the time of project managers to ‘plan’ allowing them on what’s really important: reaching milestones and enabling stakeholders.

Example: Drafting job descriptions for open positions

Give time back to HR to source and recruit the best candidates instead of writing down job descriptions. Using Google Duet AI, recruiters will be able to create draft job descriptions through one single prompt, adapt and publish in minutes.

How does Google Duet AI work

It’s no secret Google has been a frontrunner in AI for many years. Think about features in search such as automatically completing your search queries, preventing spam in Gmail or understanding how traffic will change in Google Maps.

The space they are entering now – generative AI – is rather new for them but uses similar technology.

Generative language models are all about learning patterns through training data coming from different formats and contexts.

Through minimal input a Generative Language Model is able to ‘predict’ what comes next based upon millions of examples (data) it has analyzed in the past. It will be able to understand your context, the likelihood of what you are trying to achieve and provide autocompletion of your input. This is how ChatGPT works.

At SlideFill, we are also interested in Generative Image Models.

Generative image models are capable of producing new images using techniques like diffusion. They deconstruct a large set of images into noise and then map these individual noise back together to create a completely new image. This is how MidJourney works.

Imagine taking the Mona Lisa and the Girl with a Pearl Earring paintings.

A generative image model will be able to create a new painting, combining elements of the two. It would first break down the Mona Lisa and Girl with a Pearl Earring in elements: hair, eyes, lips, earring, hairband, dress, road in the background, …

After these elements are broken down, it will regenerate a new image combining or taking elements from both paintings into one.

How does Google Duet AI impact your business

Google’s new generative AI capabilities do come with a lot of benefits for your business. The main benefit is related to productivity.

Using Google Duet AI organizations will be able to save time doing administrative or less productive tasks, allowing them to focus on value-generating activities. Generative AI in the workspace is a form of automation, which enables you to use headcount and resources more efficiently.

Next to this, it will allow you to improve your business outcomes. By improving productivity, one will decrease cost. That said, we are more interested in the other business outcome: generating more revenue.

Through Duet AI your business will be able to customize and create more resonating content faster. Making the creation of client facing sales pitch decks, marketing material or business reviews more automated is our core business and interest.

How you can use Google Duet AI to make more revenue

We believe in customization and personalization of content at scale. Why?

  • 71% of your customers expect customization of marketing material
  • 35% of your leads convert more when receiving personalized presentations

Both combined will lead to 40% more revenue for your organization.

The good news: you can start customizing your sales, marketing and analytics presentations at scale today easily via SlideFill.

While we focus on making content more data-driven by connecting your CRM data directly in Google Presentations, Google Duet AI will allow you to create instant complementary images.

This will allow you to take your customization one step further. You will be able to:

  1. Collect data in your CRM
  2. Create unique presentations per CRM record via SlideFill
  3. Generate complementary visuals based on the data via Google Duet AI

With Google Duet AI you can generate mock-ups or visuals that align with the vision or brand you are talking to. It will also allow you to visualize data points on top of the graphs, tables, charts and raw data you pushed via our app.

This will enable you to improve your storytelling when presenting to an audience and make them retain more information via visual hooks.

Our upcoming product will allow you to instantly create visuals leveraging Google Duet AI based on the text in your presentations to allow you to generate 99% ready to go slides.

Until then you can create data-driven presentations automatically with SlideFill but you will need to create visuals yourself either in the template or via Google Duet AI if you prefer deeper customization.

Let’s go over how to write good prompts and how to get access to Duet AI.

What are the best prompts for Google Duet AI

The prompt you will need to use to get the best visuals in your Google Presentations will highly depend on the context of your presentation. If you are presenting a sales pitch deck to a car manufacturer, it’s worth providing that information.

To write excellent prompts for generative AI, you will have to follow these principles:

  • Be specific: as illustrated above, it’s important that you make it easy for Google Duet AI to understand what you want to visualize. Try to be as specific as possible when writing a prompt.
  • Relevancy: use relevant keywords and phrases to help Duet AI to understand the context of your presentation and your target audience
  • Avoid buzzwords: there is no room for jargon, technical language or buzzwords. Make sure to write simple sentences – envision writing to a layman.
  • Provide examples: reference other material as an example to explain what type of content you are looking for.
  • Style: specifically state the style of your visuals. Looking for a modern style? Clipart? Picture perfect? Explain to Google the style of your visuals.
  • Iterate: fine-tune prompts until the output is meeting your expectations and is professional to present to clients or internal stakeholders.

How to prevent the pitfalls of using Generative AI in sales?2024-01-28T04:18:28+00:00

Pitfalls arise when businesses solely rely on Generative AI without considering the importance of customization. While Generative AI, such as ChatGPT, can automate content creation, it often leads to undifferentiated and generic messages that lack personalization. In the long run, companies using Generative AI for all content creation might save costs initially but risk losing differentiation and personalization, crucial factors in customer engagement.

To prevent these pitfalls, businesses need to strike a balance between automation (or GenAI) and customization. The article suggests categorizing content based on its value – low or high. Low-value content, like confirmation messages, can be automated through tools like ChatGPT with minimal customization. On the other hand, high-value content, such as sales pitches or marketing collateral, requires in-depth customization to resonate with the audience and maximize conversion potential.

The key is to recognize when and where to apply automation and when to prioritize customization. By understanding these dynamics, businesses can avoid the pitfalls associated with over-reliance on Generative AI.

What is the role of GenAI in content customization?2024-01-28T04:18:27+00:00

Generative AI, including tools like ChatGPT, serves as the automation component in content creation. It automates the generation of low-value content, such as confirmation messages or routine communications, allowing businesses to streamline processes and save time. However, the article emphasizes that the real power lies in combining Generative AI with customization for high-value content.

Customization is the ability to personalize content, tailoring it to specific needs and preferences. In the context of content customization at scale, GenAI acts as the tool for automating low-value activities, while customization becomes crucial for crafting personalized and impactful high-value content.

The key takeaway is that both GenAI and customization have their roles, and businesses should strategically leverage them to achieve efficiency and effectiveness in their content creation processes while not compensating on personalization.

Why is customization of content business critical?2024-01-28T04:18:28+00:00

Customization in sales and marketing content is essential due to the saturation of the digital landscape. With individuals spending significant time online, generic and undifferentiated content tends to get lost in the noise. The internet’s saturation leads to a high volume of content, making it challenging for businesses to capture the attention of their target audience. Customization allows companies to stand out by aligning their value proposition with the specific needs and preferences of their audience, resulting in increased engagement and, ultimately, higher revenue. The McKinsey study mentioned in the expert article emphasizes that 71% of customers expect personalization, and companies excelling in customization achieve a 40% boost in revenue.

To navigate the content-saturated environment successfully, businesses must focus on personalized messaging, relevant recommendations, targeted promotions, and timely communication. Customization is the key to building a unique brand identity in the long run, setting a company apart from the indistinctive and dull content generated by emerging technologies like Generative AI.
