Key notes

  • Google appoints a former OpenAI talent to join its AI Studio.
  • Kilpatrick, previously at Microsoft-backed OpenAI, now becomes a senior product manager at Google AI Studio.
  • He will oversee and support the Gemini API project and build the most AI developer-focused team globally.

Google may be behind in the AI race against Microsoft. But apparently, the Mountain View tech giant has just recently appointed a former OpenAI talent, Logan Kilpatrick, to join its AI Studio.

Kilpatrick had previously worked for Microsoft-backed OpenAI for over a year as a “member of the developer advocacy staff” according to his LinkedIn profile. His main role at that time was to manage relations between developers. 

Kilpatrick is now set to take on a new role as a senior product manager, overseeing Google AI Studio’s main focus on supporting the Gemini API and building the most AI developer-focused team globally.

The former NASA shares the news on X (formerly known as Twitter), saying, “We are going to make Google the best home for developers building with AI.”

Gemini, Google’s AI language model, is the engine behind its well-known chatbot with the same name. Formerly called Bard, Google Gemini (the free version) operates similarly to ChatGPT but requires logging in to access and can connect to the internet.

Gemini API, on the other hand, is a tool from Google that lets developers and businesses use Gemini Pro, their top-tier AI model. Gemini Pro works better than other similar models and has features like a 32K context window for text and support for various functions like chat. It supports 38 languages and comes with easy-to-use tools for building apps in Python, Android (Kotlin), Node.js, Swift, and JavaScript.
