Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai has shared advice for Indian engineers amid the AI era.

In a YouTube interview with content creator Varun Mayya, Pichai suggested young engineers understand technology more deeply.

Pichai responded to Mayya's opinion on cracking the FAANG interviews. A FAANG interview refers to the hiring and recruitment processes of the world's leading tech companies—Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google.

"I don’t know if you know this, but there is an entire industry in India built to help young Indians crack the FAANG interviews," Mayya said.

The AI blurbs generated by Google's Gemini technology will offer succinct summaries of what it found on the internet with links to the online sources that supplied the information.

The change comes as Google feels growing pressure from AI-powered search engines like Perplexity, and from the repeated rumors that OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, is building its own AI search tool.

Searches through AI chats have also appeared on Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, with users able to get information from the web without Google.

Creators and small publishers are nervous about the change, fearing users will no longer click through to websites to find information.

GPT-4o can generate content or understand commands in voice, text, or images.

OpenAI's update to its technology proved to be extremely conversational -- able to crack jokes, write songs, and help tutor a student in algebra.
