    Google releases Gemini, a GenAI model

    Last week, Google launched Gemini, its new Generative AI model. According to CEO Sundar Pichai, Gemini is designed to significantly impact various Google products. Gemini will eventually be integrated into Google’s search engine, its ad products, the Chrome browser, and more, all over the world, supercharging them with AI capabilities. 

    “It’s our largest and most capable model; it’s also our most general”

    Gemini's launch includes powering Google’s LLM Bard, and introducing new features for Google’s Pixel 8 Pro phone. Developers and enterprise customers can access Gemini Pro starting December 13th via Google Generative AI Studio or Vertex AI in Google Cloud. While initially available in English, Google plans to integrate Gemini into its search engine, ad products, Chrome browser, and more globally.

    Comparing Gemini with the competition, Google claims that its new model outperforms OpenAI's GPT-4 in 30 out of 32 benchmarks, emphasizing its strength in understanding and interacting with video and audio. 

    Google characterizes Gemini as "natively multimodal" because it underwent training on a diverse range of data types, including images, video, and audio. This stands in contrast to the predominant focus on text-based training for the large language models that have been central to the recent surge in generative AI development.

    Gemini is envisioned to evolve beyond text-based interactions, incorporating images, video, audio, and eventually more senses. Google also highlights Gemini's efficiency, being faster and cheaper to run than its predecessors, such as PaLM.

    “It's a big moment for us. We're really excited by its performance, and we're also excited to see what people are going to do building on top of that.

    Gemini's release is considered a pivotal moment for Google, positioning it to compete in the rapidly advancing field of generative AI. The company believes Gemini could have a transformative impact similar to the web's role in making Google a tech giant. The "Ultra" version of Gemini designed to handle highly complex tasks, will be released early next year.
