Google’s Gemini AI model is a large, multimodal AI model that can reason across text, images, video, audio, and code. Google claims that Gemini has advanced reasoning capabilities to “think more carefully”.
Google has rolled out Gemini to compete with OpenAI’s GPT models. Gemini Pro outperformed GPT-3.5 in six out of the eight industry benchmarks. Google’s most advanced model, Gemini Ultra, beat the newer GPT-4 in seven of the eight benchmarks.
Gemini will be available in three models:
- Gemini Ultra, the largest and most capable, for highly complex tasks
- Gemini Pro, for a wide range of tasks
- Gemini Nano, for Android users who want to build Gemini-powered apps.
In the wake of OpenAI’s release of ChatGPT about a year ago, tech giants have been scrambling to launch their own chatbots and LLMs to compete with the AI startup. Google’s recent evaluations of Gemini suggest that OpenAI’s competitors are catching up.
Gemini is designed to be more powerful and capable than its predecessor. It was launched by Alphabet and Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai and DeepMind’s CEO Demis Hassabis.
