The Rise of Gemini: How Google’s Latest AI is Different

Another AI is ready to insane the world of the Internet. And this time it is Google who is launching its own AI chatbot.

What is Gemini AI?

In the ever-evolving world of artificial intelligence, Google’s Gemini stands as a landmark achievement. This powerful model, released in December 2023, boasts significant advancements compared to its predecessors.

Gemini AI is not a single model, but rather a family of AI models built on cutting-edge research and technology.

Gemini, earlier known as Bard was officially announced and launched as part of the Google I/O keynote on May 10, 2023. 

Gemini AI by Google

Google renamed Google Bard to Gemini on February 8 as a nod to Google’s LLM that powers the AI chatbot. “To reflect the advanced tech at its core, Bard will now simply be called Gemini,” said Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, in the announcement.

As per Google – Our Gemini models are built from the ground up for multimodality — reasoning seamlessly across text, images, audio, video, and code.

Gemini AI Models

Gemini comes in three model sizes. They are –

  • Ultra – Our most capable and largest model for highly complex tasks.
  • Pro – Our best model for scaling across a wide range of tasks.
  • Nano – Our most efficient model for on-device tasks.

With the Ultra 1.0 model, Gemini Advanced is far more capable of highly complex tasks like coding, logical reasoning, following nuanced instructions, and collaborating on creative projects.

You can already chat with Gemini with our Pro 1.0 model in over 40 languages and more than 230 countries and territories. And now, you may have two new experiences — Gemini Advanced and a mobile app — to help you easily collaborate with the best of Google AI.

Google has confirmed that Gemini is already being tested in the Search Generative Experience.

Google hasn’t publicly revealed the specific details of the AI model used for Gemini. Gemini does not utilize any version of GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) from OpenAI.

The Future with Gemini

Gemini’s potential extends far beyond specific tasks. Its efficiency and scalability pave the way for real-time AI applications, enabling faster and more personalized interactions. Additionally, its modularity allows for customization, creating specialized models for specific industries and use cases.

However, ethical considerations remain crucial. Bias and fairness in AI models are well-documented concerns, and Gemini is no exception. Google acknowledges this and emphasizes responsible development and deployment of the technology.
