The underlying tech of SGE are multiple large language models (LLMs) including an advanced version of Google’s MUM as well as PaLM 2.

For uninitiated, Google is developing a new technology for answering complex search queries called “MUM,” which stands for Multitask Unified Model. While, PaLM 2 is the latest Large Language Model (LLM) released by Google, in May this year, that is highly capable in advanced reasoning, coding, and mathematics. It’s also multilingual and supports more than 100 languages. PaLM 2 is a successor to the earlier Pathways Language Model (PaLM) launched in 2022.

Moreover, SGE is also available for programming languages and can be used to easily understand and debug code, with color-coded syntax highlighting that makes it easier for programmers to review. SGE currently provides AI-generated overviews to help with tasks across a number of programming languages and tools. For example, you can find answers to how-to questions, and see suggested code snippets for common tasks. Segments of code in overviews are even color-coded with syntax highlighting, so it’s faster and easier to identify elements like keywords, comments and strings, helping you better digest the code you see at a glance.
