In this Contrarian Marketing podcast, we discuss Google I/O 2023 and highlight several key announcements:
The Google Workspace integration with search results, which allows users to quickly copy information to a Google sheet
Google's AI music tool, Music lm, which Eli was not impressed with
AI search results and the inefficiency of SEO
Finally, we debate whether AI will replace artists in the future, with Kevin arguing that AI will make it easier to bring ideas to life and allow for more remixing and ideation, while Eli believes we are heading towards a future where people will date computers and stay home.
